Welcome to the Ski-Simulator next to the tower in Holmenkollen.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to jump in the new Holmenkollen hill?
Jump in “Kollen” and find out what it feels like to head down the world’s toughest downhill ski slopes alongside the world’s best performers on two skis. Technology which used to be available only to pilots and astronauts combines flight simulator movements with an ‘eye-view’ movie to create a unique and realistic feel.
Ski-Simulator has a capacity of 12 people and takes about 5 minutes.
History about Ski-Simulator
The Ski-Simulator is part of the Culture and Tourist Destination in Holmenkollen, Norway’s most visited tourist attraction and one of the world’s most famous sporting arenas. So if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to jump the new Holmenkollen hill, it’s never been easier to find out and at the same time enjoy a truly spectacular experience. Go to www.holmenkollen.com and find out what’s happening...with or without skis!
You will find the Ski-Simulator right under the ‘Ski-Jumper’ in full size, which you can see 20 m from the Ski-Museum’s Entrance.
Once inside the Ski-Simulator you will get the ‘ride of your life’, including wind-effect when the skiing starts. Up to 12 people can sit inside at the same time and the whole ride lasts about 5 minutes.
As far as we know there are hardly any similar ski jumping and downhill racing rides comparable in the world and that maybe one of the reasons why the Ski-Simulator and Holmenkollen were featured as one of the ’10 best things to do in 2011’ by Lonely Planet.
’The second part of the film-ride is a ‘point-of-view’ ride from the extremely challenging downhill ski racing-course at Beaver Creek, Colorado, USA. It is the World-Cup winner himself doing the skiing, so hang on in, it’s 130 km/h all the way down to the finish-line!
“Amazing ride, amazing experience. It made me realize how crazy you have to be to go skiing at 130 km/h and how dangerous it is. It makes you want to scream out loud, so hold on tight!”
