The Fountains of Bellagio is a vast, choreographed water feature with performances set to light and music.
The Fountains are set in a nine-acre man-made lake. Contrary to a common urban myth that the lake is filled with treated greywater from the hotel, it is actually serviced by a fresh water well that was drilled decades prior to irrigate a golf course which previously utilized the site. In fact, the fountains use less water at present than under its prior golf course use. They incorporate a network of underwater pipes with over 1,200 nozzles that makes it possible to stage fountain displays coordinated with over 4,500 lights.
The “Super Shooters” nozzles send a water blast as high as 250 ft (76 m) in the air.
