Only three fountains like it in the world. Colorful loud music a real attraction. Great way to end the evening.

This was a fun, although a bit hokey, way to end the evening. A 20 minute music show with colorful lights coordinated to the music, all seen across the river. It started with the music from "Star Wars" and went on to classic rock and country.

It's free, it's wholesome, and a nice way for a family finish their day at the beach. It's pretty and the music is very mainstream so there's something for everyone.

The Musical Fountain is cheesy, folksy, underwhelming, and perfect! Don't expect to be blown away, but do expect a great time with friends and family on a blanket in a beautiful place listening to some of your favorite obscure songs from the past!

First visited the Musical Fountain in the mid 1960's as a child and loved it. Then took my kids in the early '90s who basically yawned at this attraction. No visiting in 2013, I too yawned. The music on this evening was very, very lame 1980's tunes by guys like Neill Diamond and the like. We were told they have put in new and better lights. Also told the huge speakers are the only ones that exist except for Disney. Really? You would not know these are supposed to sound great. Most people at the pier wandered off bored or simply ignored the fountain and walked the boardwalk. Sad to see that an attraction with such a nice history has become a bore! I love this thing, but it's time to let a younger generation make it more exciting. Try newer music for a start. Add some laser lights. Do something to kick it up a notch 'cuz this ain't working for tourists anymore.
