Old Faithful Geyser is probably one of the most, if not the most, famous geyser in the world where it holds its place as a natural icon for Yellowstone National Park. Crowds by the hundreds gather on the boardwalk around the geyser to witness the spectacular eruption of water that can blast up to 184 feet into the air. Old Faithful is located in the Upper Geyser Basin and averages an eruption every 90 minutes. Right behind the geyser is the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center where Rangers post predictions for the next eruption. Crowds build and people wait in anticipation, then Old Faithful puts on a show that impresses everyone, reminding us why this great stretch of land was set aside and protected over 130 years ago. Eruptions are also predicted for Castle, Grand, Daisy and Riverside geysers at the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center.
