The massive new attraction, which covers 14,000 sq ft (7,327 sq m)of sea water, set the record on Thursday October 22 on the launch night of The Palm Fountain.
The fountain broke the record with a performance to an exclusive song, 'Dubai is Another Planet,' while there was also a massive firework display.
The Palm Fountain is the only multi-coloured fountain in Dubai, and its super shooter stands at 105m tall. It has 3,000 LED lights and runs nightly from 7pm until midnight at Dubai’s The Pointe. Shows last three minutes and run every half an hour.
Here's a video of the launch event from fellow ITP title Time Out:
Beijing Water Design Technology Co., Ltd designed a super '4-proof marine performance platform' covering 15 thousand sqm2 for the project.
This piece of engineering technology overcomes issues arising from the complicated marine environment, such as wave shocks, water corrosions, and marine creature interruptions.
In the daily mode, the entire platform and all equipment are submerged in the sea. When it is switched to the performance mode, the platform responds quickly and elevates itself to the performance height within five minutes.
To create the show's landscape art, 800 sets of pneumatic shooters and 300 sets of digitally-controlled water show mechanical arms will perform a 'marine ballet.'
Shaddy Gaad, Senior Marketing Manager - MENA, Guinness World Records, says: “GWR is delighted to officially see The Palm Fountain breaking the title of the largest fountain. This fountain is an example of another milestone in Dubai’s architectural achievements and we are excited to declare it 'Officially Amazing.'”
