A geyser is a vent in Earth's surface that ejects a column of hot water and steam. Even a small geyser is an amazing phenomenon,however some geysers have eruptions that blast thousands of gallons of boiling hot water up to a few hundred feet in the air.

Old Faithful is the world's best known geyser. It is located in Yellowstone National Park (USA). Old Faithful erupts every 60 to 90 minutes and blasts a few thousand gallons of boiling hot water between 100 and 200 feet into the air.

Geyser are normally found at
  1. United States
  2. Russia
  3. Chile
  4. New Zealand
  5. Iceland

The tallest active geyser in the world is Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone National Park. Some of its eruptions blast water over 300 feet into the air. Don't go to Yellowstone expecting to see it erupt because it has erupted less than ten times in the last twenty years -.-
