Control the Fountains at the Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas for only $250,000 (!)

Posted on April 23rd, 2013

The Hyde Bellagio $250,000 Fountain Deal. Bargain!

If you’ve been to Las Vegas, you’ve probably seen the fountain show outside the Bellagio on The Strip. We say Fountain Show, but this is probably doing it an injustice. It’s HUGE. Waterfall show? Turbo jet show? Mountain Fountain Show? Maybe Geyser Extravaganza.

Anyway, fear not if you have $250,000 spare and you have run out of ideas of how to impress your friends. Because high roller punters (I am assuming only high rollers would dream of doing this) at the Bellagio Las Vegas Casino can now buy the right to control the resort’s famous dancing fountains – for a cool quarter of a million.

What do you get for your 6 figure lay out? Well, you get to press a big red button that probably says “DON’T PRESS” on it, and which controls the Bellagio geyser fountains and makes them dance to your favorite tunes. (When we were there a few years back they were playing Henry Mancini’s Pink Panther theme). The “offer” is available at Hyde Bellagio, a swish nightclub with a front row seat view of the fountains.

After the fountain show has finished for the night, a watery butler delivers you a gold box with a choice of fountain songs. The box contains a single red button (very James Bong Baddyesque). One nudge and “BAM!”, you have set off the 4,700 lights and 1,200 fountains, which pulse and dance to your chosen song.

Oh, hang on- that’s not all. There are extras. You also get a 30-litre bottle of Ace of Spades champagne, (40 regular-sized champagne bottles). As Dwight David Eisenhower, the 34th President of the US said, “There is no victory at bargain basement prices.” (Hey, look, we had to justify this eye watering, cough inducing, stomach wrenching price somehow- don’t shoot the messenger).

The thing to look out for on the menu? Well, it’s called the $250,000 Package. Easy to remember. The fizzy stuff is the largest bottle of champagne in the world, by the way. It is roughly 1,015 ounces, (40 bottles or over 120 glasses- so you are going to be sloshed). The bottle weighs over 100 pounds. Think “The Hangover” part 3 when you wake up the following morning with an empty wallet and a couple of monkeys and a Bearded Lady in your room.

You also get to sit at Hyde’s best table overlooking the famous fountains.

So, has anyone bought this yet? No, but don’t bet against it. Las Vegas is a craaazy town.
