The Pointe, a lifestyle and dining destination by Nakheel Malls, is gearing up to launch the world’s largest fountain.
‘The Palm Fountain’, Palm Jumeirah’s latest waterfront attraction, will attempt to break a Guinness World Records (GWR) on October 22 during its inaugural launch event, and the public is invited to witness the celebration.
Spread over 14,000 sqft of sea water, the fountain’s super shooter will stand tall at 105 metres and come alive with over 3,000 LED lights. The attraction is the only multicoloured fountain in Dubai and is a celebration of Dubai’s resurgence and ambition to aim for the sky.
On the day of the launch event, visitors of The Pointe are invited to enjoy an entire day of festivities, with all-day events and competitions from The Pointe’s restaurants and, starting at 4pm, an array of live entertainment including multiple DJ sets, dance shows, performers, a magical fireworks show.
Omar Khoory, Managing Director, Nakheel Malls, says: “Nakheel Malls is proud to launch The Palm Fountain, a celebration of Dubai’s resilience and building on the expanding portfolio of iconic attractions on Palm Jumeirah. As pioneers of retail and lifestyle destinations in Dubai, the launch of The Palm Fountain is a testament to our commitment to support retailers and push boundaries to provide our customers with unique experiences. We look forward to the inspiration this will bring customers at The Pointe, residents of Palm Jumeirah, our retailers, tourists and the wider community”.
The Palm Fountain will have 20 bespoke shows with five different shows running daily between sunset to midnight (7pm to 12am), while swaying to an array of popular songs including Khaleeji, pop, classic, international and more. Each show will last for three minutes and will be performed every 30 minutes.
Once the clock strikes 8pm on October 22, spectators can enjoy views of The Palm Fountain show from 30 different restaurants at The Pointe. The day-long event is open to the public upon registration, and the first 5,000 customers who arrive will receive a free LED wristband.
