Watch the ‘Game of Thrones’ Takeover of the Bellagio Fountains (Video)

Real flames were used for the first time

If you see a dragon’s shadow pass over Las Vegas in the next few weeks, don’t worry: It’s just HBO’s “Game of Thrones” taking over the famous Bellagio fountains.

The spectacle will run every night until the night before the show’s final season begins on April 14, MGM Resorts tweeted. (You can watch above.)

Set to a soundtrack from the series, the water show uses recognizable songs like “Winter Is Here” and the “Main Titles” theme written by composer Ramin Djawadi. Iconic symbols from the show are projected onto an 800-foot-long wall of water — which brings to mind the giant wall of ice at the center of the “GoT” storyline. They include winged dragons, the Night King, a crown, the iron throne, and the show’s official logo.

To end the show, a burst of real flames emerges from the lake, sending onlookers away with a flourish. The “GoT” fountain show is the first time the man-made lake has ever been set ablaze for a fountain show, according to The Associated Press.

Lasting 3 1/2 minutes, the show is a collaboration between Djawadi and WET Design, the company that designs the fountain shows.

“The Bellagio fountain is iconic. It’s known around the world, and so is ‘Game of Thrones,'” Djawadi told the AP. “So, I think putting them together and seeing the music choreographed to a fountain like that is quite the spectacle. I think it will get everybody really pumped for this final season coming up.”

And don’t worry: The show has been specifically designed to be spoiler-free.
