Ski jumping is very popular in Poland. This discipline became especially attractive when Adam Małysz and Kamil Stoch began to regularly win the highest positions during the Winter Olympics, World Championships, and triumphed in the general classification of the World Cup.
Television audience records are broken in Poland for these competitions. It is no wonder… Poles are competiting with such ski forces as Norway, Austria and Germany. Tens of thousands of fans come to Zakopane to support our national team during individual and team competitions held on the famous ski jump…
What made us love jumping…? What distinguishes jumping from other sports…? Speed, extreme experiences from a competitor and probably a little inaccessibility, because an average person is not able to experience even a little of these amazing sensations… We can only observe jumpers on huge, specially prepared sport facilities. Everyone who has had the opportunity to visit Wielka Krokiew in Zakopane is aware of its size. And here we come to the culmination point – now everything has changed!
Thanks to the agreement and commitment of the polish Central Sports Center – Olympic Preparation Center in Zakopane, everyone has the opportunity to ride down the Wielka Krokiew ski jump…! Thus, Wielka Krokiew became the largest slide in the world!!! It is worth noting that it is actually 2nd slide in the world, and the 1st in Europe, where we can go down the hill! Only at the Olympic facilities in USA there is a possibility of a similar ride, but from a slightly smaller hill. Dizzying speed, comparable to a jumper (depending on the level from which we start), huge emotions, all in a safe way. Finally, you will receive a certificate confirming a ride from the Wielka Krokiew ski jump! BOMB!!!
The ride takes place on a… pontoon! In fact, these are specially prepared tubings for the ride on a green plastic. After all, not everyone is able to complete the ride from the ski jump! Optionally, we can buy a recording from a special camera – a great souvenir. On the video, you can additionally see the actual speed with which we are going down!
