About this spot
Echinus Geyser is the largest acid water geyser known. Acidic geysers are rare and most of them are found in Norris Geyser Basin. Echinus Geyser used to be more predictable, but in recent times its eruptions are irregular and can be anywhere from hours to months apart. The pool will gradually fill and then explode suddenly with bursts of steam and water that explode 40 to 60 feet (12 to 18 m) skyward. Eruptions can last from about 4 minutes to as long as 118 minutes.
