World’s highest wind tunnel to open in Dubai
Dubai: The world’s highest wind tunnel, standing 20 meters tall and five meters wide, is set to open in Dubai this summer.
InFlight Dubai’s glass wind tower will beat its rivals in the United States at 15.8 meters and in Singapore at 17.2 meters, a report in The National said.
Four high-powered fans will push air into the tunnel, creating wall-to-wall airflow with enough lift to support up to about 115 kilograms of weight in flight.
The tower will be housed in a four-storey building that should be completed by next month.
Those who take flight inside the glass tower will experience the same rush of adrenalin as those who jump out of a plane at 3,650m, Matthew Adam Gagne, an instructor at the centre told the newspaper.
