UAE is famous for surprising the world with its infrastructural innovations and this time was no different. With multicolored lights and jets oozing out water at the night sky, Dubai’s newest attraction has set a Guinness World record.
Dubai set a world record on Thursday after it became home to the largest fountain in the world. The fountain is located in the Pointe in Dubai’s waterfront Palm Jumeirah area and adds to UAE’s glorious list of World Records.
The fountain in Dubai eclipsed the record of Banpo Moonlight Rainbow Fountain in South Korea to become the largest fountain.
With its launch, Dubai aims to restore its hard-hit tourism economy. Spread in a 14,366 square feet area, the fountain inundated people with water dance, music, over 7000 LEDs and jets that can throw water in the sky as high as 105 metres.
“Guinness World Records is delighted to officially see The Palm Fountain breaking the title of the Largest fountain,” Shaddy Gaad, Senior Marketing Manager at Guinness World Records, said in a statement.
Besides the largest fountain, Dubai flaunts the record of being home to the tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa, and also a record of having the fastest police car in service – Bugatti Veyron.
