Dubai, one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, already holds a string of world record titles — including the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and the fastest police car in service, a Bugatti Veyron.
Notably, the city that attracts millions of tourists already has one of the largest fountains in the world near Burj Khalifa.The fountain spans over 14,000 square feet (1,300 square meters) of seawater, according to Gail Sangster, asset director at Nakheel Malls, the developers behind the fountain. She said it features 128 super shooters reaching up to 105 metres (344 feet) in height. The new fountain has over 3,000 LED lights, 7,500 nozzles and can shoot water up to 105 metres, according to Guinness.
Adorned with over 3,000 LED lights, Dubai’s only multicoloured fountain, designed with colour and brightness controls, will be open to the public all year round. It will show three-minute dancing water displays set to music, running every 30 minutes.
The biggest fountain record belonged to South Korean Banpo Moonlight Rainbow Fountain. The South Korean fountain, which has 38 water pumps shoots as far as 43 meters horizontally, is still considered as the longest fountain bridge in the world.
