    Hopefully it gets filled in and a 6 story parking ramp put in its place. We need more parking that is close to the strip.

    To prevent drowning I heard they were going to covert it into an ice rink.

    Oh that was a good one. I don't even care much for the fountain show but I did feel some type of way to see it "leave".

    zlanga was the first to catch this April Fool prank but he played along to see if we could fool anybody..Well played zlanga

    Bellagio fountains used to be once an hour..Now it feels like they are on every time u blink..

    Bellagio fountains and Freemont Street Experience need to major overhaul

    Maybe, but since many new folks keep coming to Vegas it's still something special for all of them. Not everyone is a Vegas junkie that keeps returning even though they seen almost all that there is to see....

    However, if the are going to yank it out how about skeet shooting over the lake...now that's something you can't do in any other city....LOL

    I know some people have grown sick of them but no matter how many times i've seen the fountains I always make sure to stop again at least once. I know they cost Bellagio/MGM a fortune so i'm sure the space will be converted into something else at some point. Hopefully that point is years and years from now. I will shed a small tear if this ever does turn out to be true.
