“Underwhelmingly specatular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Why? Because they are over before they begin! Simply doesn't live up to the hype, good though they are.

“great show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

The show is very good. It has specific timings and be sure to reach well before. One can enjoy boating during the show time or have snacks/dinner in any of the restaurants in Dubai Mall which is adjacent to the fountains. Both boating and dining has an excellent view of the fountain.

“Even better than Las Vegas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Starts at 6pm every 30 minutes until 11pm ( I think). Two shows in the afternoon at 1 and 1:30pm.Always better to check online before you go.

“Glimps of magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Breathtaking experience that will leave you smiling long after its all done! You can make great photos of the fountain and the Burj Khalifa in the back, from the bridge that connects the mall with the restaurants. Be aware tough, the show appears on every 30min. and it lasts appx. 3min, so plan your time around when to get out.
