Everybody loves them. We wanted to take a closer look at one of the most popular stops on the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio Fountains. What we found is awesome (and incredibly expensive). The free attraction is located in the center of The Strip in between Caesars Palace and the Cosmopolitan.
3. You can press the red button
For a hefty sum of $250,000, you are your friends who can choose your song and push the red button that sets off the fountain on your outdoor patio VIP table. Guests who buy the package will be met by a butler who delivers a 30-liter bottle of Ace of Spades, a menu of fountain songs, and a gold-plated box with the red button. What an experience for only 250 grand…pocket change, am I right?
2. Operational costs
The Bellagio fountains are rumored to cost $10,000 to $15,000 per night. That’s $300,000 to $400,000 per month. It has also been reported that the fountains cost over $40 million to build. Only in Las Vegas.
1. 22 Million
The man-made lake holds 22-million gallons of water over 8 acres. The fountain features 1200 nozzles, 4500 lights, and 8000 meters of pipe. The fountain can shoot as high as 460 feet, which is only 81-feet shorter than the Eiffel Tower across the street at Paris Las Vegas.
