Crouching Tiger & Turtle

This roller coaster without a roller coaster is actually an installation intended to be explored by walkers.

Located in Duisburg, Germany and created by sculptors Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter, it's made of steel and zinc, stands nearly 280 feet high, and cost about $2.3 million dollars to create.

According to Mutter, the roller coaster represents "acceleration and the high speed of a tiger but the sightseer has to investigate it step by step like a turtle."

And perhaps you are wondering how to navigate the loop?

You can't.

But it's probably only a matter of time before some daredevil attempts to do so anyway.

And lit by LED lights at night

More, more, more
