The German city of Duisberg built a $2.75 million sculpture that allows visitors to navigate a walkway that makes up the "track" of the roller coaster-themed piece. Don't tell me you wouldn't want this in your backyard!

That's amazing. It supports the idea that roller coasters are works of art.
Pssh... Can't even climb the loop. Lame. :)
I was thinking the same thing. I mean, if you took a good running start...
What I find odd is that it doesn't look like anyone can walk the entire thing without turning around at each side of the loop. Would be cool if they'd have bridged the gap there so it was a continuous circuit...but I'm sure someone would complain that it takes away from the artistic qualities or some crap.
Doesn't look like they have a Fastpass option. I'm out.

Or that it should count as two credits if you walk each side up to the loop.
The amusement park rises bold and stark..kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
Man, If I could only run like Forrest. :) That loop would be awsome to run through.
My Beautiful wife, Julia, is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
I noticed the same thing Vater. I also found it interesting that there is not a lot of passing room for those who are walking back from the loop. Awkward.
That there is no walking bridge linking each side of the loop makes it extra-artistic. lol
I've had actual dreams of coasters that were very similar to this. Except that with a running start, it was not only entirely possible but expected the 'riders' would get through the loop.

Anton track is only like, 2 feet wide, or something kinda small. It's ok :)
If you are expected to walk it, let's hope it is at least two feet wide...one foot wide and you would have to hop!
