Tiger & Turtle—Magic Mountain, Duisburg, Germany

21 Mar

 

 

It looks like a standard roller coaster from a distance, but upon closer inspection, you’ll be faced with an ingenious staircase stretched through all kinds of curves.

 

German artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth made this interactive sculpture, unveiled in late 2011, so that visitors could explore the 249 steps both at day, taking in views high above the Rhine, and at night with LED lights on the handrails illuminating the staircase.

 

If you’re wondering how to climb around the loop, well, you can’t. It’s closed off by a barrier.
