Dubai - Gushing About Its Latest Feat!

The world’s largest fountain is set to launch at The Pointe, one of Dubai’s premier lifestyle and dining destinations by Nakheel Malls.

‘The Palm Fountain’, Palm Jumeirah’s latest waterfront attraction, will attempt to break a Guinness World Records™ (GWR) title on Thursday, 22 October during its inaugural launch event, and the public is invited to witness the celebration.

Spread over 14,000 sq ft of sea water, the fountain’s super shooter will stand tall at 105 metres and come alive with over 3,000 LED lights.

The attraction is the only multi-coloured fountain in Dubai and is a celebration of Dubai’s resurgence and ambition to aim for the sky.

On the day of the launch event, visitors to The Pointe are invited to enjoy a day of festivities, with all-day events and competitions from The Pointe’s restaurants and, starting at 4pm, an array of live entertainment including multiple DJ sets, dance shows, performers, and a magical fireworks show.

Omar Khoory, Managing Director, Nakheel Malls, said:“Nakheel Malls is proud to launch The Palm Fountain, a celebration of Dubai’s resilience and building on the expanding portfolio of iconic attractions on Palm Jumeirah.

“As pioneers of retail and lifestyle destinations in Dubai, the launch of The Palm Fountain is a testament to our commitment to support retailers and push boundaries to provide our customers with unique experiences.”

The Palm Fountain will have 20 bespoke shows with five different ones running daily between sunset to midnight (7pm to 12am) while swaying to an array of popular songs.

Once the clock strikes 8pm on 22 October, spectators can enjoy the breathtaking views of The Palm Fountain show from 30 different restaurants at The Pointe. The day-long event is open to the public upon registration.
