Beehive Geyser


Beehive Geyser is a favorite performer, but can be dormant for long periods. When active, Beehive Geyser is magnificent. Eruptions usually occur twice each day with displays lasting 4 - 5 minutes. During an eruption, the narrow cone acts like a nozzle, projecting the water column to heights of 130 - 190 ft (40 - 55m). Beehive Geyser also has a side channel that acts as in indicator. This feature is called Beehive's Indicator.
