Mieders, Austria – Alpine Coaster

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.

Mieders Alpine Coaster (with no brakes!!)-the 2011 price was 11 Euros ($15) which includes the cablecar ride to the top…well worth it!”
