Yes it's just short of 16ft. Same design but bigger than the Prague tunnel. It is round, no corners. and glass so you can watch from the street!Exciting times!

It's different people now, Skydair with their tunnel that was designed by school kids are long gone, New developers have taken over and as Regan said they are building the same design as Prague, so we know it'll work

Hi, they have a facebook page. It has all the prices on there. I would give you the link but I have nothing to do with the tunnel marketing so dont want to get told off by the UKS bosses for advertising ;-)

The tunnel is about to go 24 hours opening. It is the new place to hang out and party while people float around in a big glass tube like little goldfish :-)
