This is the World’s First Roller Coaster…That Isn’t Actually a Roller Coaster

By | March 12, 2014

When you think of roller coasters you think thrill, speed, excitement. But believe it or not, there are some people out there who just don’t enjoy roller coasters. In fact, they hate them. So what about those people?

The German Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain coaster was designed just for those people. With views from atop a 45 meter high installation, this “walking” coaster has 249 steps so you can fully enjoy the experience of being on a coaster….without actually riding one!

Not just for thrill seekers anymore. Here, you can go at your own pace.
