Got there through the subway, as soon as we got out of the station there were thousands of people there waiting for the show. The show starts at specific times from sunset (about 9 or 9:30pm) and lasts about 30 minutes. Water moves with music in a nice choreographed way. Colorful lights and water splashing on the people who are... More

We had so much fun here! The atmosphere was thriving, the views were enchanting and the fountains were great fun. The fountains only run on certain days so its always worth checking beforehand. Id also suggest getting there on time to be a part of the crowds walking there and to be there while the sun sets to get all... More

The fountain was not flowing when we got there, it might be because we went there on Sunday afternoon, but still it was very pity that we couldn't see it at its best.

We arrived late, it was crowded, but the water and light show where well worth it. The fountains can be seen despite the crowds as the jets must go up to 30 feet in the air. Even if you don't manage to make it along for a performance time, or if you do, climb the steps or take one of... More

A good place to visit. Impressive sound and light. Predictable and safe music choices. Very crowded. To get more space go to where the wind is blowing if you don't mind getting wet.

You must view this! Anytime, you have to find a time to visit those fountains! Beautiful music and show. If you've gone on 20 min earlier, you could place in small cafe nearby and enjoy all show there. And do not be lazy to climb the steps and watch the show at the top of the fountains, it's worth it!!

The fountain display was colorful and pretty elaborate. It is set to music - mostly American pop hits.

The fountain is amazing. At fist I thought it's going to be just another fountain but now... I can only advice people to have enough memory space on their camera
