Roller-coaster sculpture offers visitors a unique ride

IMAGINE doing the "loop de loop" on a roller coaster - minus the car.

Now you can on the Tiger & Turtle - Magic Mountain - a huge sculpture shaped like a roller-coaster in the German town of Duisburg.

Instead of riding it, visitors can explore it on foot at their own pace, with spectacular views of the River Rhine. Thrill-seekers can admire the landscape from different angles although the big loop is unfortunately out of bounds for people seeking some high-jinks thrills.

Creator Ulrich Genth said: '"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."

The sculpture is located on Heinrich-Hildebrand-Höhe in the Angerpark and is free for visitors.
