Video #6: Join Me Behind The Scenes At Bellagio Fountains

As part of Virtuoso Travel Week 2018, I was invited behind the scenes at the Bellagio Fountains.
Loni Singer, Lead Engineer for the Fountains, took me on a tour and told me all about how the magic happens. The fountains opened in 1998 and there have been 240,000 shows with music from Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, the Beatles and most recently Cher.

From the Bellagio Fountains Bat Cave, I learned that it is the #1 Fountain on Google and in 2013 it was named the #1 USA Landmark.

Want to go on this tour? Check it out on MLIFE.
30 engineers work together to keep the 22 million gallons of water crystal clear and all the fountains working! There are 192 super shooters which shoot 220 feet in the air and 798 mini shooter which shoot up 120 feet! The extreme shooter goes up 500 feet in the air!
