Walking roller-coaster

November 15, 2011 | By Abraham | 6 comments

The city of Duisberg Germany has recently installed a piece of landscape art that is a walkway which is laid out like a roller-coaster. It’s entitled “Crouching Tiger and Turtle,” because it gives the impression of potential speed but can only be experienced slowly, step by step.

Here are several images from Flickr user Eichental

      if you check the kuriositas link it explains that you can’t walk on the loop bit, in some of the other photos there’s a gate blocking the way.

        Well that totally sucks! What’s the point of building something people will walk on only to have them get stuck on the stupid thing and have to backtrack?
