Dubai Festival City in Dubai, UAE launched its new multi-media attraction IMAGINE with a spectacular Guinness World Records attempt at the world’s Largest water screen projection.

An enormous 893 m² (9,612.17 ft²) light projection was displayed on a curtain of 30 water fountains and mist in Festival Bay, outside the mall.

Mansoor bin Mohammed (pictured below), son of Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, pressed the button which started the breathtaking show.

The enchanting 360-degrees display, which was entitled ‘Stardancer’, also included music, fireworks and dancing (though these aspects of the show were not included as part of the record).

Thousands of spectators turned up to witness the record-breaking performance.
