What is That? Wednesday: Mieders Alpine Coaster

It's the middle of the week already?

So it is...bonjour and welcome to Wednesday!

Today's video is from Austria.  I'll let the guy who made the video explain what you're about to see:

This is a single-pipe alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria. You reach the summit via a cable car and then sit on a small car with a brake lever and off you go. Having ridden it once using a little braking, I decided to try it a second time without using the brakes. This is SCARY! Enjoy the ride!

Whoa!  I'll admit, I'm not a big fan of roller coasters, so watching one from the safety of my sofa was adventurous enough for me!  ;)
