Short film: Under the water dome

Filmmaker Casey Neistat & his son visited—then snuck around—a German water park housed in an enormous former airship hangar. It makes for a fun three-minute film. (Bonus: German rap meets Biggie Smalls!)

As Kottke quotes the park’s site,

The Tropical Islands Dome is gigantic. In fact, it is the largest free-standing hall in the world: 360 metres long, 210 metres wide and an incredible 107 metres high.

That is big enough to fit the Statue of Liberty in standing up and the Eiffel Tower lying on its side. The Tropical Islands Dome covers an area of 66,000 m², the size of eight football fields. And it is high enough to fit in the whole of Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz, with all its skyscrapers.
