^i dont think any part of tower is open. The site surrounding BurjD is still construction zone. this would have to be completed before any part of tower is open to public.

They won't have this many visitors. The most visited site in the world, The Eiffel Tower, set a new record in 2007 with 6.893 million visitor entries. This averages out to fewer than 19,000 per day. I've been there, and that is still a ton of people to accommodate day in and day out.

Look how long the queues are in this Google Maps satellite shot:

Massive Dubai Fountain Will Be the Largest, Most Technologically Advanced Water Works of its Kind

In Dubai, they're doing things big these days. Big hotels, big palm tree islands, big wallets, and very soon, big $281 million fountains. The biggest one in the world, in fact, and it will be large enough to give the famed fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas an inferiority complex.

At 825 feet long, the unnamed fountain will be 25% larger than the Bellagio fountain. Powering the fountain will be pumps capable of shooting columns of water approximately 450 or so feet into the dry Middle Eastern air. A light and sound show produced by a network of 6,600 lights and 50 projectors will illuminate the burgeoning Dubai skyline at night. About 22,000 gallons of water are expected to cycle through the fountain at any given time when it is completed in 2009. Now, if you'll excuse me, nature calls.
