The walkable rollercoaster

Have you ever had the frustrating experience of meeting someone who doesn't like rollercoasters?

It's a bitter pill to swallow and makes you question why on earth you're even talking to this hopeless waste of oxygen in the first place.

Well, next time it happens, rather than resort to name-calling and violence, we might have a compromise. In Duisburg, Germany, a new sculpture has opened that closely resembles a rollercoaster, just without the whole movement thing.

The 20-metre marvel, named 'Tiger and Turtle - Magic Mountain' was built on top of a mining waste top and stands 85 metres above sea level.

So if you're ever in front of a rollercoaster-hater again, take them on a plane and head to Germany. Oh but chances are they're probably afraid of planes too...
