      what the fuck happens when there is a grizzly or another form of wildlife sitting on the track.

  • Want.

    Fucking incredible..

  • Me.

    Quagmire is riding this..

    • JDB

      hahaha, I thought the same thing.

  • Heather

    Holy Crap!!!

    That would be so illegal in the UK…

    • Headfade

      There are a couple of similar things although no where near as long, Llandudno in North Wales has one, but you ride in a half tube rather than on a rail.

    • Jay

      That's because EVERYTHING is illegal in the UK!

    • dave

      No it wouldn't. Stop reading the Daily Mail.

    • Rafiki

      That's because the UK is lame. . . .

  • hm..

    How exactly did he stop, come the end?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1552508249 Julian Billinger

      he didnt, he died.

      • hm..

        he died and kept going?

      i watched the whole clip to answer that question, obviously it still needs to be answered

      soooo, im just gonna go with "he didnt, he died"

      • laxster

        the vehicle got brakes he just didnt use them during the ride. all these signs say that you have to brake at these hard corners 😀

        • SpacemanSpiff

          thanks for the logic…but you killed the magic

    • Underbaker

      Also want to know what the cart looked like and how the got it back to the top. Very disappointed that we didn't see him slam into the concrete wall.

    • David Ellis

      At the end I had to use the brakes…it would have got rather messy if I had kept going at that speed, to be honest.
      Glad you all like the video…oh to be back there again.
      David.

  • Tint

    EPIC

  • Josh

    They have a shorter version of this in Park City, UT called the Alpine Slide. Same idea.

    • http://www.facebook.com/tyson.frost1 Tyson Frost

      they have it at snowbird too, but not nearly as cool as this!

      • kevguy

        the ones in vermont are more halfpipe than this monorail type. this looks amazing

      • parkatola

        Go Utah Chivers!

    • http://www.facebook.com/porterol Raliegh Porter

      there is also another one near duluth, mn. not sure if this is the one, bever been on it, just heard of it!!!

      Epic Stuff!!!

    • artod4789

      They had an Alpine Slide in NH too when I grew up. Fast as hell and on the sharp turns, you're at a 90 degree angle. They had one sharp turn over a 40 ft. cliff and you're not tied in very well. Scared the sh*t out of me!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=17815425 Adam Purcell

    Perfect day for it too, the scenery was nuts. Also, those signs in the areas where trees have been cut down give it a mine field kind of vibe.

    • MattKL

      I was thinking the same thing about the scenery. It's beautiful, and here he's screaming down a greased rail.

  • Andy Valentine

    I'll give £1million to anyone who can grind it.

  • PianoFingers

    There are slides like this all over the european mountains. I've tried them in Poland and Slovenia so far.

  • Ander

    All roller coasters should be this long! I hate waiting in line for an hour with smelly people for a ride that lasts 30 seconds.

    • Brian King

      I bet your wife says the same thing!

      • JHL1

        I bet his wife doesn't have to wait in line for an hour.

  • fed

    i rode something similar in switzerland and minnesota, but none of them were so long. that one is definitely one to try!

    • thrillho

      The one in MN is "Wild Mountain"….waterslides and stuff too. Although, the one at Wild Mountain is more like a half-pipe/luge track type of thing, not a rail like this one.

  • Robb

    Who brings the cart back up?

    • Bill Nye

      They take the ski lift.

  • Huge

    Books flight to Austria

  • Graham

    some que a deer somewhere in this video…

  • Da Sandman

    longest coaster in the world..?

  • MattKL

    Crazy. I want to do it!

  • torc

    i wanna know what they do about leaning into corners, surely there are people who dont and absolutley wreck themselves…

    • Unfkngblvbl

      looks like the rail has a spine on it that keeps you on track into the turns. The brakes are prob just for people who wanna go slower

  • etcrr

    Brakes, I don't need no stinking brakes. or You don't need brakes where you're going

    • Really?

      I kept waiting for a deer to be grazing over the track.

  • edward lorenz

    I spent the first three minutes of this video wondering why it was called an airplane coaster. It's too early.

  • Han

    This video is much better if you play the speeder bike music from Star Wars in the background while you watch.
