A walkable roller coaster
It may not be the tallest or the fastest roller coaster, but it is the only walkable roller coaster. Tiger & Turtle-Magic Mountain is ideal for a day out with the kids. Sitting atop a hill in Duisburg (very near Düsseldorf), the structure is more than 220 metres long and 21 metres high. The Tiger & Turtle offers stunning views of rivers Ruhr and Rhine.
Designed by sculptors Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter, the roller coaster is named after the high speed of a tiger and the slow pace of the turtle. There are gravity-defying steps up the loop-the-loop, although they can’t actually be used. Made of steel and zinc, it can be visited at night thanks to LED lights illuminate the handrails.
