A very nice show, although quite short. Lights, lasers, flames, water jets. Impressive! From my point of view, more beautiful than Dubai Fountain, from Burj Khalifa.

Don't go here to especially watch this show. It is a bit underwhelming especially if you have seen the one at Dubai Mall. But if you're eating at one of the many restaurants overlooking the water and you happen to catch the show, it's interesting. But I wouldn't go out of my way to catch this show. it's also very short.

Great show, really lovely location with lots to do whilst you wait for the show to come on. We were 10 mins down the road at a hotel so got a taxi there and back. Worth the watch and would definitely recommend.

This is something unbelievable. I have never experienced something like this. The show was in my mind for a week. This is totally worth going. I believe better than dubai dancing fountain. I felt like that I am in different world. I was so happy after watching this show that I uploaded video instantly in YouTube and bought gift for my girlfriend 😂😂✌️👍

Nice show, the colors of the water walk hand in hand with the music and it is very nice to look at in the evening.

This imagin show has 4 D effect.. a 3 D projection of holograms over the water fountains which in itself is a huge difference. Unlike the special specs you can watch this with your normal eyes. The venue is so nice that there is a 360 degree projection and the live fire and water makes you feel inside the sequence projected giving you the "4D" experience. The entrance to it is FREE and worth watching during week-ends with large crowd.

To be honest the best way I can describe this show is disappointing.

I read so many glowing reviews about this, so we chose intercontinental hotel festival city for our staycation.

Best thing I can say about the show is it’s very, very close to the hotel. Best view was from the club area on 26th floor. From here you can only see the fountains and colors.

Compared to Dubai fountains it’s nothing. If you only have time to see one, it’s a no brainier: Dubai Fountains for sure.

We saw 3-4 shows, all revolving around Lego?? Might be because they had a “Lego festival” going on? Might be nice for small kids (like 3-4 year olds). Our 9 year old was. It impressed at all (whereas with Dubai Fountains she’ll ask to stay longer, so she can see more shows).

No crowds (Understandably)

the imagine show is just incredible. we stayed in festival city on the waterfront at the intercontinental hotel. we watched it most nights and we were there for 8 days. there are 4 different shows and start from 7pm to 11pm every half hour. the colours and the lazers and water spouts just amazing. there were elephants on the water and a tunnel with a dancer in it and pirates etc. they put some of it on our hotel and rest on the water. you just have to go and see it to believe it. incredible we just loved it all.

Visited festival city mall for Imagine. 3 spectacular shows. Would highly recommend it. The mall itself is nice also with plenty shops and places to eat. It was a bit out of the way from where we were staying but well worth it.
