Choreographed to music, the Dubai Fountain shoots water as high as 500 feet –that’s as high as a 50-story building. Designed by creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Vegas, Dubai Fountain Performances occur daily on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake.

Brilliant evening out.. the fountains are amazing .. the atmosphere is exciting. There are water shows every 30 minutes. Get your place at the water side early as it gets packed quickly. Then nip into the mall for a bite to eat in an air...More

I went a couple of times with family and visitors - my granddaughter was all smiles , the show was a little too short and much too crowded for comfort.

We felt cool just watching the beautiful display. We went about 21.00m so missed the big crowds so it was very enjoyable.

Just outside the Dubai Mall, in front of Burj Khalifa the Dubai fountain is a treat to watch. It starts late after 7 during ramadan and an almost 10 minute show in held at an interval of 30 minutes. A must see and free activity.

Having been to Dubai a few times I've never done the boat ride at the fountains and quite fancy this to see them from a different perspective. However my husband is concerned that even if we book online before we go there will be a long wait for the boat ride once we're there. Does anyone have experience of the boat ride and the queueing times, even if time slot booked in advance? Thanks
