50+ MPH on the Single Pipe Steel Mieders Alpine Coaster is Insane [Video]
Let’s head to the top of a mountain in Mieders, Austria. Then, speed all the way to the bottom on this open-air, single-rail coaster down the steep mountainside – without brakes!
While it’s not the world’s fastest or highest, this Austrian downhill coaster is nevertheless terrifying, as evidenced by this first-person video of the downhill plunge.
The single-pipe alpine coaster located in Mieders, Austria, is reachable only by taking a suspended cable car to the top of the mountain. Once at the top, riders sit on a small car equipped with a brake lever and zoom down the steep mountainside. But this brave soul decided to show us what it would be like without using the brake lever through the entire ride.
