The Bellagio Fountain is located within a nine-acre lake directly in front of the Bellagio Hotel Las Vegas. It spans upwards of 1,000 feet in length in more than 1,000 water nozzles coordinating with 4,000 lights, which work in conjunction with specific musical patterns. Using the dramatic combination of music, water and light, the Bellagio Fountain is one of the attractions you don't want to miss while in Las Vegas.

The fountain is considered to be one of the most intricate and majestic water features that have ever been designed. Three types of water nozzles were used to create the Bellagio Fountain - Oarsmen which swings back and forth creating the illusion of dancing water, shooters which is responsible for shooting water upwards, and the super shooters which can send water blast as high as 250 feet. The water and music are professionally choreographed, making it an engineering feat as well as a treat for the senses. Steve Wynn, American casino resort/real-estate developer and owner of the Bellagio Hotel, chooses the Bellagio Fountain music, covering a wide range of genre from classical and operatic pieces to popular music and notable songs from Broadway shows. Some of the music used for the fountain dance are "One Singular Sensation" from A Chorus Line, "Luck Be A Lady" from Guys and Dolls and "Hey, Big Spender" from Sweet Charity.

The dramatic Bellagio water shows are performed Monday through Friday every half hour between 3:00 and 8:00 PM, afterwards changed to every 15 minutes from 8:00 PM till midnight. On weekends the shows begin 12:00 PM. The Bellagio in Las Vegas delivers spectacular performances with its majestic fountains making it one of the best free attractions the city has to offer. Along with the Conservatory, Gallery of Fine Art and Bellagio retail shops, the fountains are among the hotel's biggest draws.
