Question ID: 409704
I read an article in the UK's "Metro" daily newspaper that a bew
indoor scuba diving tank had been opened in Belgium.  I read this
article during the first half of this year and I believe that it had
just been opened.  I believe it may be owned by the military but I
cuold be wrong about this.

I'd like to dive there so I'm trying to find out where this tank is in
Belgium and whether it is open to the public.  If so, how does one
book a slot and where/how.
