In fact, this is hailed as one of the most popular attractions in the city, because not only are they free, these spectacular waters even dance to the tune of over 30 different songs.

Yes, you read that right – the waters of the fountain literally dance to whatever song is playing. That’s over 1,200 jets of illuminated water that can spurt up to 460 feet into the air. The streams of water twirl, spin, and shimmy with perfect timing in order to create a beautiful display of waterworks, leaving the audience in awe.

Interesting Facts

The fountains are literally a huge attraction. Measuring 375,000 square feet, the attraction is as big as eight football fields and can contain enough water to fill up 2,000 swimming pools. If you were to take your typical garden hose and start filling up the fountains, it would take over a year to finish!

There are exactly 1,214 devices that simultaneously shoot streams of water at any given time. The water can be shot up higher than a 24-story building. And these aren’t just little streams of water – 17,000 gallons of water are being shot up in the air.

Over the years, the performances have just gotten better. Bellagio has now added EDM shows, featuring the works of powerhouse DJ Tiesto, to the entire mix. Of course, the playlist also includes timeless classics like songs by Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, and Elvis Presley.

So, if you’re going to the Bellagio, make sure you don’t miss out on this amazing attraction. Getting there is easy, as there usually isn’t much traffic, but even if there is, it’s definitely worth the trip. In fact, you’d probably want to stick around watching the fountains perform all day.
