One fact about Las Vegas is that you should always expect to see an awe-inspiring sight every few meters. The Bellagio chocolate fountain display is without a doubt one of them.
The glass-encased multi-tier chocolate fountain is quite a spectacle. In fact this is definitely a piece of kinetic art. – A sculpture made out of glass and chocolate :) Here is the top of it:
You will become totally captivated by the chocolate flowing from one lever to another. Unfortunately, there is no way you can dip your finger in to have a taste of the tantalizing liquid. But just look at the pictures below – I think that they really are worth a thousand words… :)
The Patisserie display
The sweet-smelling wafts tormented me. I had to look for a place to satisfy my cravings inside the shop :)
I first visited this place at Easter time. That’s why, almost all goodies were made for that holiday. However, the patisserie offers deserts specifically decorated for all events and seasons.
Warning! Are you a chocoholic? Oh, what am I talking about? You don’t need to be a chocoholic to start salivating at the sight of all those culinary marvels :)
The Bellagio Chocolate Fountain Guinness Certificate
The Guinness World Records has certified it as the largest chocolate fountain in the world. It is 27 feet tall and has over 500 feet of stainless steel piping. Six pumps circulate 2 tons of chocolate at a rate of 120 quarts per minute. These statistics explain why the fountain took 2 years of planning and design. The end result was indeed an amazing piece of engineering.
No wonder this is one of the 8 most exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas!
