Dubai Fountain Lake Ride Tickets and three great alternatives

Dubai Fountain Lake Ride Tickets
Enjoy one of the most exclusive trips in Dubai: a lake ride on a traditional boat around The Dubai Fountain.

The Dubai Fountain – by boat or from the top of the world!

Yes, of course, you don’t want to miss The Dubai Fountain and the Burj Khalifa. But you may ask yourself, what’s the best option to enjoy a spectacular view of the fountains?

Option 1: Dubai Fountain Lake Rides

While thousands of visitors per day take the elevator to the observation decks of the Burj Khalifa, some of you like it more intimate with the fountain: a lake ride with a traditional boat around the beautiful fountains at the ground of the Burj Khalifa is the best way to do so. (If you don’t like lake rides look at the end of our article: we have another special recommendation for you 😉

While you are enjoying a 30min gentle ride on an “abra” – a traditional boat in Dubai – you are very close to the beautiful fountain spectacle. Enjoy an exclusive view you won’t get without the lake ride and take breathtaking memories and photos for your loved ones.

What makes The Dubai Fountain and a lake ride near the Burj Khalifa so special?
It’s hard to answer this question with text. Even pictures couldn’t transmit those impressions. It’s pure emotion – you can trust us.
Dubai’s engineers created a marvelous water and light experience: 6,000 lights and 25 color projectors illuminate 25,000 gallons of water. The perfect coordinated water choreography is synchronized with Arabic, classical, and world music.
Riding on a boat while the water dances simultaneously to the music is your chance to grab a spectacular view only a few visitors have.

This is for the heart. Enjoy your lake ride and book your Dubai Fountain lake ride ticket today!

Option 2: At.mosphere Lounge on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa

You can also enjoy an extravagant view of Dubai’s Fountains from Burj Khalifa’s luxurious restaurant “At.mosphere”.
Look at the dancing fountains while you enjoy delicious drinks and snacks in “the world’s tallest restaurant” At.mosphere. The At.mosphere is located on the 122nd level (two floors below the observation deck) and is known as the world’s highest lounge bar. With the At.mosphere ticket, you enjoy a free pick-up service from your hotel, drinks, and light snacks as per fixed menu (“up to AED 250 / person for snack lunch and up to AED 400 / person for snack dinner – depends on the option chosen” [for full details and other options, click on ticket above]), as well as a 500ml bottle of water per person on board of the transfer car. For sure you can order full meals for an additional price.
The At.mosphere lounge is definitely worth a visit: great views and cool lounge music.

Option 3: Standard and VIP Burj Khalifa Ticket

You can also visit Burj Khalifa’s observation decks. We compared all Burj Khalifa Tickets for you to make your choice easier. Special tip: save a lot of money with booking a combo-ticket for your Dubai attractions.
