World's Tallest, Most Expensive Fountain In Sparkling Action

As you would expect, the world's tallest fountain is in Dubai. As you would expect, it's next to the world's tallest building. And as you would expect, it's as over-the-top as everything else there.

The fountain sits by the Burj Dubai and reaches 150m up in the air. It was built for $US217 million by WET Design — the same company that created the one at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. The 274m-long water-show uses 6600 lights, 50 coloured projectors and hundreds of servos, all computer-controlled and synchronised with music to offer the most sophisticated water entertainment since Zeus decided to impregnate Danaë.
