First installment of German design, Bottrop is the original demonstrator for the ISG (Indoor Skydiving Germany) vertical wind tunnel design. Several tunnels in Europe are using this (Voss, Brussels, Warsaw, St. Petersburg afaik). Some more are in planning or under construction.

I've been flying in Bottrop since its construction 5 years ago and the tunnel is still as awesome to fly now as then. No leaks, no squeaks.
Other tunnels I've flown are Perris (in 2004...), Airkix MK, Airkix Manchester, Paraclete XP and Windoor Empuriabrava (Prague/czech design).
The only tunnel I would rather fly in over the ISG design is ParacleteXP for its sheer size, in terms of airflow quality nothing tops ISG.

The location is not quite as central as others, but if you have access to a car there's plenty of other entertainment within a 10 minute drive (cinemas, malls, parks, you name it).

The vibe is professionally relaxed and nice. There is usually pretty international staff on site, so English is readily spoken there.

The bar has been changing operators a few times and offers a small selection of snacks, but if you're hungry the stack of delivery service menus at the reception (and their ready-made order lists) can get whatever you need.
