What’s the Fountains of Bellagio?
You may dance the night away in Vegas, but you’ll still marvel at the moves at the Fountains of Bellagio. These fountains are simply breathtaking. Even if you’re sitting in traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard, this is the one spot where you won’t mind being stuck. It’s one of the most breathtaking attractions on the Strip — it’s gorgeous, ever-changing and best of all, free.
WET Design, the world-famous water design firm responsible for the Fountains of Bellagio, The Volcano at The Mirage and the water features at Aria, takes water shows to the next level. At the Fountains of Bellagio, not only can you watch a spectacular dancing water show, but the style changes every 30 minutes (every 15 minutes after 7 p.m.). “This fountain brings people of all ages, all different cultures together,” said Claire Kahn, a designer for WET. “They all seem to love it and are moved by it equally. It’s a destination.”
Since the genres range from classic to popular music and show tunes, you can hang around and see something different from the last time. There are more than 30 different songs that play on rotation. Songs include Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon,” Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas” and Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s “Con Te Partiro (Time to Say Goodbye),” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and The Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” among others.
