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 certainly one of them.
The glass-encased triple 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:
In fact, there are three fountains in total: One for dark chocolate, one for white chocolate and one for mocha chocolate. 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… :)
I think it is more than dubitable to see anything like this elsewhere in the world… As a matter of fact, the fountain got a Guinness World Records certificate!
Captivated by this display, I took as many photos as I could :) I also played with one of them in the digital media, and uploaded it to my Fine Art America gallery. It is available for art prints of all kinds and even accessories and gift ideas. Just click on it to see for yourself:
“Only in Las Vegas, Baby!” :)
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.
The Patisserie display
The sweet-smelling wafts tormented me. I had to look for a place to satisfy my cravings inside the shop :)
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 :)
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.
No wonder this is one of the 8 most exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas!

I didn’t when I first visited Las Vegas. I actually learned about this from the Internet and went to visit it :)
But as they say: In Vegas you should “expect the unexpected”!
Wow. Who knew? CHOCOLATE!!!
Thank you Tina! Yes, I know…😀 something they are missing though is to give small samples of that chocolate. You can buy products but a small sample would be great!
Oh my, I’d never leave Tatiana! Fascinating choice for the challenge
I guess not 😀 Thank you Leya!
WOW – what is there else to say?
Thank you “Chasingamemory” :)
