My favourite Tunnel for Fun and Training 
Pros: Cheap, perfect organized, sportsflyer-friendly, low further costs

Very, very, very professional staff and facility. Always superfriendly and helpful. Cheap prices, summer-discounts and a great restaurant. Locker-rooms are huge and clean, also showers included. The sportflyers are separated from the firsttimers, so everyone has its own space. The timeslots are clear and the infosystem is perfect. You can watch the flyers via LiveStream on their Website to see what is going on.
Hotels are available, cheap and in good quality around the location.
Tesco-Mall is in walking distance and offers 7days/week all things you need.
Prague is for flyers and family or friends a great place to be.

Super-cheap tunnel 20 mins outside Prague city centre 
Pros: One of the cheapest tunnels in Europe, Czech hospitality
Cons: Can't think of any

Skydive Arena is a 14ft tunnel to the North East of the city centre. The pro-flyer rates are really good - $730 (536) per hour including GST/VAT as at 26th May 2014.

Pros:
-----

It's great value for money.

The airflow is smooth and there's no diffuser to there's power all the way to the turning vanes.

There's enough power that even fatties like me can fly head down.

It's easily accessible via budget airlines - you can get to Prague for 120/return from the UK, for example.

There's a good restaurant on site which also sell cold beer.

Pro-flyers and coaches are on hand all day.

Cons:
-----

I can't think of any other than it's not right outside my house.

Other things you should know:
-----------------------------

The holding area where you wait between rotations is quite large and there's a monitor with a 2 minute delay so you can review your performance.

The viewing area has a few sofas and bean bags plus also some toys/games for the kids to keep them occupied when mom and dad are enjoying their play time.

You can download footage on to your own USB sticks in the changing room.

There are showers available for those really sweaty summer sessions.

There's a small selection of helmets, goggles and other bits and bobs for sale if you forget something.

The changing/locker room has a marked out area for dirt-diving.

There are lockers available, you get given a lock and key when at reception.

There's a decked area at the top of the restaurant including a bar, barbeque and a jacuzzi for those late night parties.

It's right next door to a shopping centre to get those essentials you forgot.

When I went I didn't have a suit or a helmet so one of the instructors lent me his suit and we blagged a helmet from someone else - so kudos for the lads for that.

Prague itself is an achingly beautiful city, the beer's cheap (if you avoid the main tourist areas) and the food is great. Pork seems to be the staple diet for the Czechs!

There's a few DZs about an hour's drive away.

Summary:
---------

All in all an excellent tunnel and well worth a visit. It would be ideal for team training if you're booking a lot of time as, I believe, lower rates are available for large block bookings.
