The reopening of multiple entertainment destinations coupled with the debut of a new attraction, will see Dubai further bolster its position as a year-round destination.

All attractions, however, will strictly adhere to the country’s health and safety protocols so as to ensure the wellbeing of all its visitors.

Located at The Pointe, in Palm Jumeirah, the attraction is the only multi-colored fountain in the city, and spans across 14,000 square feet of seawater.

To celebrate the day, visitors of The Pointe were invited to witness the launch as well as partake in the festivities throughout the day.
