A Tropical Island Park Built In What Used To Be An Airship Hangar

Built by a company called Cargolifter, this airship hangar was acquired by the Malaysian corporation Tanjong and converted to a ‘tropical paradise’-themed indoor holiday resort named Tropical Islands. Located approximately 60 kilometres south of the centre of Berlin, the theme park is 360 metres long, 210 metres wide, 107 metres high, and has a capacity of 6,000 visitors a day.
 
Tropical Islands is home to the biggest indoor rainforest in the world, a beach, many tropical plants and a number of swimming pools, bars and restaurants. Inside the hall, the air temperature is 26 °C and air humidity around 64%.
 
Tropical Islands is divided in a number of themed areas. The Tropical Village will give you a taste of Thailand, Borneo, Samoa and Bali, with accurate copies of traditional buildings. The Rainforest features over 50,000 plants and 600 different species. The Tropical Sea is designed to look like the waters of a coral island with its 140 metres pool and 200 metres sandy beach, and finally, there’s the Bali Lagoon park for whirlpools, water slides and other water structures.
