The Truth About Swimming in The Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas

The Bellagio Fountain is massive and may look like an excellent place to swim, especially if it’s really hot outside.

Some may even consider it a challenge, as some people do with other famous landmark fountains. However, you can’t swim in the Bellagio Fountain, at least not without consequences.

You May Get Arrested

Those who jump in the fountain are usually charged with misdemeanor trespassing. In Nevada, this charge can result in a $1000 fine or up to six months in jail.

The pool is quite deep, and there are several obstacles at the bottom, like tubes, jets, and objects that people throw.

It Can Be Risky

You Can Cause Damage

As a result, you will be charged with property damage in addition to trespassing, which can increase your fine or potential time in the county jail.

Someone jumping in the fountain pool can interrupt the show until the person is caught or gets away.

You Will Ruin the Show for Others 

There are instances where you may see people legitimately swimming in the Bellagio Fountain. The difference, however, is they aren’t swimming for fun. It’s their job.
