In the land of roller coasters, Orlando (Florida), the title of being the longest, fastest and highest mountain usually lasts very little, due to the speed at which its main theme parks grow. For now, this title is held by Mako, a beauty of purple loops.
Tiger & Turtle-Magic Mountain
It is not the tallest or the fastest, but it is the only roller coaster that can be walked on. Tiger & Turtle-Magic Mountain is the perfect attraction to go with the little ones. Located on a hill, in the German city of Duisburg (very close to Düsseldorf), it is over 220 meters long and 21 meters high. From this viewpoint you can see the Ruhr and the Rhine basin. It has the classic ‘looping’ through which narrow stairs run in defiance of gravity. Built in steel and zinc, it remains open at night and is illuminated with LEDs integrated in the handrails.
