How do they do it? The world-famous fountains at the Bellagio seamlessly bring together water, light, and music for a one-of-a-kind attraction you can only see in Las Vegas. But what makes the water actually dance?

During this tour, you will get an in-depth look at what it takes to put on one of the famed fountain shows at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. A fountain control engineer will take you on a one-hour behind-the-scenes tour of the Bellagio fountains and show you what it takes to make sure that this iconic attraction stays operational day in and day out.

Please note that there is a fair amount of walking, so please wear comfortable walking shoes.

Cost is $25.00 per person on or before November 4 and $30 starting November 5; preregistration is highly recommended as the tour group size is limited.
