It's nice to be able to get so up close and personal with these huge wind turbines. Gives a new appreciation for them. And up close (besides the size) they are surprisingly loud. Easy to miss the little sign off the 132, so watch for...More

I expect most visitors here are somewhat technically inclined so I was foremost disappointed at our guide's inability to coherently answer even some basic technical question about wind turbines. The introductory video was very basic and displayed on a 12" TV. The visuals used on...More

I wonder, what this was supposed to be. When arriving on site, the gate was locked and nothing in sight. And there was no movement on the unit.

We had hesitations before to get tickets But the visit was actually very nice. The guide was fun and very informative. We learned a lot on wind turbine, specially on vertical axe turbine. This is a very nice 90' very informative and reasonably priced
