Fuente de Dubái
Inaugurada en primavera de 2009, la Fuente de Dubái (Dubai Fountain) es a Dubái lo que las Fuentes del Bellagio son a Las Vegas, uno de los espectáculos gratuitos más bonitos de ambas ciudades.
El parecido entre ambas fuentes no es casual, sino que han sido diseñadas por los mismos ingenieros. La diferencia entre ellas es básicamente el tamaño, si bien quien ve las fuentes de Las Vegas no imagina algo más grande, el gobierno de Dubái no imagina tener algo más pequeño que otra ciudad.
El lugar elegido para la instalación de la Fuente de Dubái también es privilegiado: el lago del Burj Khalifa. Poder ver la fuente desde la terraza de Dubai Mall con el edificio más alto del mundo de fondo no deja indiferente a nadie.
Especificaciones
La Fuente de Dubái mide 275 metros de longitud (un 25% más que las Fuentes del Bellagio) y cuenta con 6.600 focos y 50 video proyectores para iluminar el agua. Sus impulsores son capaces de lanzar el agua a más de 150 metros de altura.
