Hair raising free fall

To enter the mine, Baron 1898 plunges you down a 37.5 m free fall into the mineshaft at a speed of 90 km/h. Dare to embark on this wild ride?  Be warned: even the bravest will have their hair standing on end!

For whom is the Baron 1898 appropriate?

To go down into this deep mine, you must be at least 1.40 m tall and be brave enough to do so: you actually fall 37.5 m straight down... This is why this attraction is too dangerous and not accessible for pregnant women. Baron 1898 is closed when it freezes or snows.

Accessibility
  • Minimum length 1.40 m
  • Transfer necessary
  • Not suitable for pregnant women
  • Not suitable in case of injuries
