The Waltzing Waters…
Around 1930, German inventor Otto Przystawik invented the first musical fountains. In 1964 his son, Gunter moved to the U.S. and continued in his father’s footsteps developing even more sophisticated designs. Today, grandson Michael Przystawik is company president of Waltzing Waters, Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer of musical fountain spectaculars.

Businessman Alex Donald outside of Waltzing Waters, Newtonmore
In Newtonmore, Scotland…
In 1979, the newly re-routed A9 motorway bypassed some of the tourist-dependent villages in the Scottish Highlands. Businessman Alex Donald knew something really new and different was required to draw tourists off the motorway into the village of Newtonmore.
While on holiday in Florida, he witnessed the Waltzing Waters. Stunned by its beauty and emotional appeal, he knew he found the perfect solution.
In 1990, Mr. Donald brought the show to Newtonmore and the Waltzing Waters quickly became one of the most popular attractions in the Scottish Highlands.
On the Isle of Wight, England…
The show in Scotland was such a success, Mr. Donald decided to bring the Waltzing Waters to England. The Isle of Wight was an obvious choice as it was already a popular tourist destination. As in Scotland, after opening in 1994, the Waltzing Waters quickly became one of the most popular attractions on the island.
Millions of visitors from throughout the UK and Europe have now seen the shows. Many have come back multiple times testifying to the enduring popularity of this extraordinary art form.
