We were there when it was not working but we got the idea from the digitals. Our tour guide was disappointed that we didn't get to see it too.

This fountain fits in well with the rest of MIllenium Park. The massive LED screen adds a modern element that is very intriguing. The fountain itself is shallow if you just want to walk across it or you can get wet if you choose to have the massive LED person "spit" at you. A really new vision on what a fountain can be.

Crown fountain stands in the Millennium park, close to the Cloud gate. Likewise, it's a big attraction and kind of fountain I've seen nowhere else.
Two glass towers facing each other with changing human faces projections and spilling water all around. Fun for kids and interesting for adults.

Great fountain - the faces are supposed to represent a modern version of gargoyles. Especially nice in summer when it's hot.

Fun to watch for a few minutes, to see the pictures change. And probably fun to splash around in if I were a little kid. I sure hope that water is well chlorinated. When I was here before on a hot day, the pigeons were lined up at the top of the structures, pooping in the water that cascaded down for everyone to play in.

We were there mid September, nice place to watch the changing faces and people watch. Plenty of benches to sit for awhile. It’s a busy area as it is the entrance to Millennium Park.

If you are traveling with kids you need to come here!
They can take off them shoes and walk for the water floor (even if you’re adult you can do it) and is funny!

This was fully open when we visited and it's terrific - not something you can see anywhere - lively and amusing. Also - it was so hot when we were there - we were happy to take in a little of the mist and enjoyed watching people take the plunge.

Visited Millennium Park on a super hot and humid day. My daughter was really looking forward to cooling off a little in the water that usually sprays out of the mouths of the people.

The rest of the park was open and great but for some reason the geniuses that run this park decided not to turn on the fountains that spray out water because of Covid. Not sure how doing this would help stop the spread of Covid considering it is outdoors and everything else is open.

If they are really that concerned about people getting Covid from a fountain of water, have people line up and go one at a time. Or put up a sign that you have to wear a mask to go in the fountain. Instead, they just turn it off and ruin any type of positive experience.

Fun space to cool off on a hot day. We kept waiting to see the water flowing but it never did. Still a nice place to visit if you’re in the area,
