“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We visited the wall at sunset and it was close to magical. An absolutely beautiful experience. There did not seem to be a lot of parking. We parked on the street with everyone else, though there were no parking signs everywhere. :/

“Really pretty...different than anything I've seen.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I've never seen anything like the water wall. That said, once you're seen it, you've seen it. You may not even need to park (which you'd have to pay to do). If the traffic isn't that bad, drive slowly around the block to get view. Note - water cascades down the back of the wall as well as the front!

“On a hot day or photo shoot its okay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Its an interesting spot to see what people can imagine as art. The water gives a cool breeze on a hot day. We stumbled across this attraction trying to get around terrible Galleria Mall traffic. People were dressed in beautiful wedding attire for photo shoots. Kids were running around. There is nothing else there but the wall if you drive by so I recommend going at night where there is more glamour and lights. We actually like looking at the different high end cars at night which frequent the Galleria area. It would probably make a good video shoot to show friends on social media or text.

“Impressive Attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Very nice attraction in the middle of a hectic area. Nice respite. Nice misty breeze when we were there. Did not see in the evening but I imagine it would be impressive.
