Riding A Roller Coaster On Skates

For most people, riding a roller coaster strapped into a seat is excitement enough, but not for Dirk Auer. Dirk decided he wanted to ride the Mammoth roller coaster at a Stuttgart theme park on in-line skates.

The 860 meter wooden coaster enabled Auer to reach speeds of up to 90 kilometers per hour and experience up to 3Gs of force. The speed-junkie set a new world record for in-line skating down a roller coaster and said afterwards that the stunt was “a lot of fun.”

I think i’ll stick to the teacups thanks Dirk.
