A UNIQUE attraction for adrenaline junkies is slated to open this summer near the Tatralandia water park in Liptovský Mikuláš. A special 17-metre long aerodynamic tunnel will allow people to simulate a free fall, the TASR newswire wrote in mid May.

The aerodynamic tunnel is part of the holiday resort’s strategy to continue expanding with new attractions, including some that do not involve water.

Visitors will be able to experience a simulated free fall inside a glass chamber in which they will be kept afloat by a blast of air blowing at a speed of 270 km per hour.
