The Palm Fountain in Dubai announced that this weekend will be its last. The attraction located at The Pointe on The Palm Jumeirah is set to close permanently on Monday, May 15.
The Pointe confirmed the news via a post on its Instagram account, inviting residents and tourists alike to “come and catch the final shows at the weekend – Friday, May 12 to Sunday, May 14.”
Launched in October 2020, the Palm Fountain has quickly become a must-visit destination, attracting tourists from all over the world. It holds the distinguished title from the Guinness World Records as the world’s largest dancing fountain, an achievement that has added to Dubai’s ever-growing list of record-breaking attractions.
The impressive aquatic spectacle spans an area of 14,000 sq.ft., creating a mesmerizing performance through its combination of water, light, and music. The multi-coloured fountain features over 3,000 LED lights that illuminate the night sky, providing a visual extravaganza that is unique to Dubai.
The dancing water jets, reaching a staggering 105 metres high, move rhythmically, creating a choreographed water ballet that dances in harmony to the rhythm of popular hits. The resulting scene is a breathtaking fusion of art, technology, and entertainment.
However, as of Monday, this world-renowned spectacle will no longer be a part of Dubai’s skyline. While the reason for the closure has not been specified, it marks the end of an era for the iconic fountain that has been a beacon of light and entertainment for locals and tourists alike.
