Torricelli is another water feature in the Serpent Garden. The water slowly creeps up the tubes and eventually bursts out in a cascade of fountains which slowly diminish. Kids are fascinated by this one and love to explore the feature first hand ;-)

  1. We have a similar fountain called “Appearing Rooms” in London.
    I am sure you’ll also find this fascinating.
    YouTube “Appearing Rooms” to see more. :)

  2. I just want to jump in that fountain with our 100 degree temps here!

    I’d want to explore it first hand, too, Cherie, especially on a hot day! :)

    Children are fascinated with this you say and I imagine adults are too!
    Just watching water moving is so calming.

    A very interesting interactive water feature. The clear tubes where the water can be watched rising is entertainment in itself for the young !
