Austrian downhill coaster is nevertheless terrifying.” The coaster located Mieders, Austria, starts at the top of a mountain, reachable by a cable car.

Still doesn’t beat the crazy (and probably now dead) Moscow motorcyclist making his way through heavy traffic,at about an average speed of 80 mph posted here 1-2 months ago.
Just before the caption “I wonder what the signs say” appeared, I was thinking “I bet the signs say “No Turns”,
which is something my wife always laughs at when we’re driving down a highway which OBVIOUSLY has no turns and no possibility of them.If anybody can read German please inform as to what they do say, if you can stop the film and the sign is clear enough.I tried, I couldn’t.

Too bad your linked page does not allow comments. We could have a really wacky conversation about personal hygiene products or something in German and make equally peculiar AdSense ads pop up. Teh Goggle is sort of flimsy that way.

Cool. The terrain reminds me of Lake Placid. Lake Placid doesn’t have that ride but you can go bobsledding!

What a rush! I want to ride that. Just one question, what is the purpose of that rail?

Talk about no brakes. Did you ever see any of this guy’s videos? Buggy rolling.

Rode something similar in Germany, shorter but without the safety features.

I thought it looked pretty tame. It didn’t appear to be going all that fast. Looked like fun but not “jaw dropping” at all. Probably wouldn’t be too hard to get down the mountain on skis in less than half the time that coaster took.

Favorite ride in Germany my brother and I rode was at the local fest in Mannheim. It was essentially a spinning wagon wheel with the seats on the outide. No seat belts. And it tilted. And everyone tried to get to the middle and stand up through the ride. Did I mention that it hopped? Someone would lose their balance, slide all the way to the other side - taking about 3 people with them. Always a few bloody noses, bruises and cuts. Most fun ever - could never have it here.

Moose, sheep, deer, elk, dogs, bear, porcupine, etc. I guess I’ve just seen too many injuries.

I like some of the ‘self service’ rides you can find in rural Germany. Drop in a Euro, take a seat, push the button or pull the chain, and hang on. Limited safety equipment, no attendants, and lots of exposed moving parts.

And when you go to the game parks, you can go in the enclosures with the monkeys. Lots of warning signs in German and Dutch, but none in English, so the monkeys must like Americans.

As long as it’s not a Ferris Wheel, I might try it, but I think I’d like a little more than a seat belt holding me in.
