Yeah, not that great.. i was ready to go after the first song. After going to vegas and see what they have there.. cant compare. I guess i thought it was in the water not on the hill in front of us. The kids were like.. yawnnnn.. perhaps they were just sleepy from a long day at the beach
I used to live in Grand Haven but I moved a few years ago. I miss the Musical Fountain so much, it's pretty unique and it was so fun to go to in the evenings after a day at the beach. I liked sitting in the grass better, the bleachers were a little uncomfortable, but the show was awesome.
I like the show, but the music is rarely contemporary. And it isn't the world's largest, it's the world's largest Outdoor musical fountain.
The bleachers are uncomfortable, the weather is a factor, and it seems to drag on a little long. But it is great to stand a watch for a few minutes and to hear the music in the background as you walk along the water on a 70 degree evening.
Oh, and it's free.
It is fun and romantic, giving the couples and the singles a wonderful time. It is really relaxing and soothing to the busy tourist day. I recommend it for anyone who loves soft music, water, and bright colors.
I saw it a few years ago on the 4th of July and it was awesome. I was like 27 and it bought tears to my eyes. The town's great, beach is great, boating is great, the bars were fun. One of my favorite "chill" cities in the US.
The reviews here are pretty accurate. It is worth seeing but anyone under 60 won't recognize any of the music. If you have seen the music fountain at the Bellagio you will be dissapointed, if you haven't you will enjoy. Program is about 15-20 minutes.
The fountain runs every evening from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It's free, the program lasts about 15 minutes, and the music tends to be pretty dated. The light show is fairly impressive, but the music skews toward an older demographic. And Sunday nights - 100% old religious music.
