Video of Slovenian Acrobats Dunking Devils Receives 5 Million Views

A new fascinating video of the group of Slovenian acrobats Dunking Devils, shot on a freight train at the Ljubljana-Kamnik block section, received over 5 million hits in 3 days.

The video is posted on Facebook on the People Are Awesome portal page. According to the video authors, they, together with the freight service Slovenske železnice and the Urban Roof team, organized a special “acrobatic” train of 170 meters in length, on which BMX bike supports, a springboard, roller coasters and even a pool with 70 tons of water were installed.

The video was posted on 2 June, the Day of the Railwayman, in honour of the first train arrival to the territory of Slovenia in 1846. The unusual video caused a great stir at the largest European Transport and Logistics Exhibition recently held in Munich.

In September 2016, Dunking Devils already cooperated with the Slovenske železnice company. In honour of the 110th anniversary of the Solkan Bridge and the railway line to Lake Bohinj, they performed dizzy acrobatics right on a train standing on the famous Solkan Bridge, which is the longest stone arch bridge in the world. The bridge is famous for the largest arched span (85 metres) among the existing railway bridges.
