Searching for the perfect brew!

What do you think is inside this building? Updated



It's OCEANDOME in Japan



When the roof is closed, you still get blue sky and puffy white clouds ... . .

Imagine a beach where the sky is always blue, it's never too hot or cold, the water isn't filled with salt and pollution, and the surf is always perfect - welcome to Ocean Dome, the world's only indoor beach.







Ocean Dome has its own flame-spitting volcano, crushed white marble "sand", and it also boasts the world's largest retractable roof, providing a permanently blue sky. Temperature, wind and humidity are closely controlled to provide an ultra-safe "sea-side" experience.

Every hour, the volcano erupts and the hi-tech wave machines start up, starting a few minutes of sanitized surfing.

Entrance cost is US$50 per person, which seems especially expensive given that there is a free, natural beach only 300 metres away.


That's unbelievable a real beach that close and they pay to go inside.

Would be nice in winter though!

Damn, the Japanese got it all.

Of course they would go to the indoor beach--It's "cool."

Japan? I would have expected to find something that extravagant in Dubai.

Indeed. Still, pretty awesome It would make more sense if it were more inland though.

Dubai has the opposite - an indoor ski hill!

Sorry randygurl, looks like Snopes doesn't allow hotlinking. I removed the image links for you - we were all seeing giant green frown faces

I can see how it makes sense, maybe because of the indoor waterpark we have here in edmonton. It's awesome to go play in the water when it's -40*C outside

I wonder how they keep the sand beach from washing away

That is really cool, albeit expensive, but cool! That would be awesome anywhere that the winter is long and cold....

randygurl, are you talking about this? It's in archives somewhere I posted it a year or so ago...
During the construction phase...

Dubai , United Arab Emirates



All finished. Notice the palm trees outside..........



Remember, this is in the middle of the desert.... The very HOT desert where temperatures get up to 120 degrees.....







Unbelievable!





But true.....





The INSIDE view:








Quite amazing don't you think! With lots of money, almost anything can be achieved!
