This gives me the heeblie jeeblies too...

The NEMO33 is 108 feet deep and it's filled with 660,430 gallons of non-chlorinated, highly filtered spring water.

There are simulated underwater caves and windows that let people look into the pool from outside at various depths.

This is WAY too scary for me. I'm not sure if I could do it.

Would you jump in?

I'd be scared but I would defiantly do it. Never went diving before and I need to.

Ah, no. Brussells was cool, but it wasn't another AU$2000 round trip cool. And I too, would be such a scaredy cat when it actually came to jumping in!
