The fountain is located offshore with a very high pressure throwing the water up to a great altitude in the air. The view is great and is absolutely worth seeing, however that is all there is to it.

The water fountain is tall(over 800 feet). It is illuminated at night and best seen at dusk and toward darkness. A walk along the Corniche and seeing the many people is a cultural delight. Take time to sit on a bench or bring or buy a rug at the stand (good souvenir) and enjoy the cool evening breeze. No music.... More

Its a fountain - albeit a big one. Sometimes its on, sometimes its off. Worth a visit for the "stamp" as it where, and a photograph. Also nice to see from the air as you arrive into Jeddah.
