The entire performance spans more than 1000 feet giving viewers an excellent performance from nearly anywhere in front of the Bellagio Fountains. Travelers by car on Las Vegas Boulevard can also enjoy the show as it is common to be stuck in traffic on this part of the strip.

The fountains were created in collaboration with WET Design on the 8.5-acre lake in front of Bellagio on the Las Vegas Strip in 1993, the year of the hotel opening. WET Design also created the famous Mirage Volcano and the elegant water features for the Aria hotel.

A specialized staff of 30 people works every day of the year to clean, service, and maintain the iconic fountain attraction.
