A vertical wind tunnel is a specific turbine making strong wind. Lying down on this vertical wind flow, you can touch the sky with your hands, perform various acrobatic movements, and enjoy before inexperienced emotions. With the air flow of 200 kilometres per hour, feelings caused by the floating in the vertical wind tunnel are very close to those you can experience in a free fall, but the movements are similar to skydiving; they are based on the rules of aerodynamics.
