A Walkable Roller Coaster – Tiger and Turtle – Magic Mountain

walkable roller coaster

Isn’t this a fun thing?  Heike Mutter and Urlich Genthe‘s walkable roller coaster is nothing more than perfection in a modern landscape folly and  a a leisurely walkable delight.

I have been studying this thing for at least 20 minutes now…I am trying to understand that loop-do-loop  — what do you think?  Can you walk it?  Is it an Escher-esque mind-messer?  Or is it simply the point where you must turn around and go the other way?  (More images here — study for yourself and let me know what you think — or maybe you have walked it….was it as cool as it looks?)

I’m also enjoying the swirling sparkler-like qualities that they LED lights lend once the sun has gone down.  Between this (in Dalsburg, Germany) and the other industrial park we chatted about a couple weeks ago I’m thinking that a landscape themed trip down the Rhine would have some fantastic stops along the way.

    If you look closely, there seem to be barriers as either end of the loop to stop you walking round it.

    Sorry for being a killjoy.
