US$25 million was spent to build this skydiving simulator, and it has just been opened for public in April 2011.

Other provisions to get inside

First timers should notice that they need to come at least one and a half hour early before experience the attraction. This 1.5 hour is used to train and guide them about the right way to move, fly, and skydive inside the tunnel because it is in fact quite complicated. Getting inside the tunnel without training first can be fatal for the visitors may get injured because the speed of the wind inside the tunnel reaches up to 300 km/h. Any wrong movement in that speed of wind may cause some legs or arms strain for careless people ignoring to have the training session.
