The same company "Wet Design" that designed the fountains of the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas, also designed the fountain at The Grove. There is indeed a slight difference. The Bellagio fountains cost over $40 million to build. The fountain behind me seemed to have a budget of $43 dollars! Even if there is no wind, it looks as if someone is holding their breath underwater and holding a hose to the sky! Some jets don't work well and it looks as though someone is actually blowing the water up with their mouth. They are also totally randomized and don't go with the music at all. The music could be ending and low in volume and when all of a sudden a large and uncontrolled spray of water will shoot upwards, splashing people 8 feet beyond it's perimeter! You should have seen me after this picture! Jorge Bueno
