So, according to this site, as they said there: celebrations will include a unique fire and water show we going to see a great show with fireworks and not only in NYE, in Dubai and Burj Khalifa.

Its already on the go wuth the fire blended into the fountain show.

Flame throwers have been strategically placed throughout the fountain line.

I also do realise that 300+ is getting too many. However, i don't think opening a 500+ section is a good idea, since not many buildings in the world are over 500m currently. Maybe a 400+ section is a better idea.

I would love to see this thing in person. Just imagine looking up at this thing, 2,717 feet up, piercing the sky with it's elegant spire. I would faint. Such a magnificent building.

Hi Sky.
Nice work.
I take it you weren't going for acuracy. Absolutely no offence intended. Perhaps that drawing is easier to make a paper model ?

Anyone in Dubai seen any tests with the flamethrowers and fountains ? Should be some good shots on New Years.

Flamethrowers are going every night, which is odd as the guys from Groupe F told me the fun wouldn't be starting until January 18th. Perhaps something got mixed up in the translation

Hope to catch some shots and video this evening. The fountain show to Thriller is absolutely amazing.
