From far away, it looks like a roller coaster, especially when it's all lit up at night. But it's actually a walkway with very steep stairs for visitors to take in the surrounding landscape. The coaster-style sculpture, called "Tiger & Turtle - Magic Mountain," is in Duisburg, Germany. It was built on top of mining waste using zinc, steel and tin. And in case you were wondering, you can't climb the loop, it's just for show. I thought about that really hard for a while.
