HURRICANE FACTORY Madrid is for it's diameter the biggest wind tunnel in Spain.
Here you can find out what it's like to fly your body in the air. In a glass flight chamber, 5.2 meters in diameter and with a height of 12m, air flows at a speed of up to 270 km/hour, which is the speed of a real hurricane. But you will be flying at a safe height and under the constant supervision of an experienced instructor. It is intended for everyone starting from the age of 5.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each client that comes to us to fly first of all undergoes a short briefing where they learn the basic principles of flying in a wind tunnel (basic body position and the signals that are used to communicate with the instructor while flying). Then they are lent the necessary equipment (suit, goggles, helmet) and then they can go and fly. At all times, clients are in the flight chamber with an instructor who helps them and teaches them how to control their body in the hurricane-force wind. Clients alternate in the tunnel after short turns.
The HURRICANE FACTORY tunnel is equipped with a recording system which means you can get a DVD or photos of your flight as a souvenir of this incredible experience.
There is an area reserved for spectators around the flight chamber. So your friends and family can also watch you fly.
Anyone can fly, with the exception of:
- children under the age of 5
- pregnant women
- people under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
- people with impaired blood circulation or a heart defect
- people with back or spinal disc problems or any injuries
