Let's take a walk on a Roller Coaster!


Have you ever thought of walking on a roller coaster track? Nuh uh? Neither do I... :p
However, you can now experience the thrill of walking on a roller coaster track with the existence of a big sculpture in Duisburg called "Tiger & Turtle - Magic Mountain".

Before we go on with the pictures, let me enlighten you all with a lil bit of facts on this interesting sculpture.

  • It is designed by German artists ( Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth)
  • Standing more than 45 metres of the ground (85 metres above sea level)
  • It is made of tin, zinc and steel.These materials symbolize the early industrial uses in this area.
  • About 120 tons of the materials were used to create this magnificent sculpture.
  • It is worth about 2 million euro. 
  • Total of steps are 249 which make a total length of 220 metres.
  • At night, LED lights would illuminate the handrails.

    Maybe this is the reason why it is called Tiger & Turtle - Magic Mountain. The designers 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". Oh and it is located on a so called Magic Mountain.. :) 

    I went to see this wonderful roller coaster sculpture two times with my friends.The first time I went was in the evening with Hakim, Fizz, Lan and Darwin.We didn't take many photos as it was dark and faces couldn't be seen clearly..So I decided to go again with Darwin and Rumitha in the afternoon so that we could take better and clearer photos. :)
