Found on top of a mining waste tip, the piece is meant to be a landmark in Duisburg, Germany, as it stands nearly 280 ft above sea level. LED lights line the 722 ft long coaster so visitors can explore it day or night, taking in the surrounding sights. The whole project cost roughly $2.7 million and used 120 tons of steel! "The roller coaster stands for acceleration and high speed of a tiger but the visitor has to explore it step by step like a turtle," says designer Ulrich Genth. Do you dare?
