小编摘要:什么时候中国也做个这样的雕塑,让小胆子的人们也体验下过山车的欢乐。

导读:在德国杜伊斯堡市一座景观公园的山坡上,游人迎着满月,行走在刚刚完成的雕塑“Tiger and Turtle - Magic Mountain”上。这座雕塑由德国艺术家Ulrich Genth和Heike Mutter共同完成,高18米,形状类似过山车轨道。一起看新闻是怎么说的吧!

If you are terrified of roller coasters this is definitely the easy way to experience the thrill.

In fact this isn't actually a roller coaster at all but a huge towering sculpture in Duisburg, Germany.

It has been built on top of a mining waste tip at the Heinrich-Hildebrand-Height in the Angerpark, which opened in 2008.

Visitors can climb on the curved sculpture and walk around, taking in the surrounding views from the spiral walkways - but not at the breakneck speed usually associated with roller coasters.

Named 'Tiger and Turtle - Magic Mountain', the 20-metre landmark was designed to be a focal point for the Ruhr region and stands 85 metres above sea level.

The area is regarded as one of the most rapidly changing landscapes in Europe.

It is made of tin, zinc and steel - materials symbolising the early industrial use of the area.

Zinc used to be produced in the local area and steel at Krupp Mannesmann, a major steel-processing company.

Creator of the two million euro project, Ulrich Genth, said: 'The roller coaster stands for acceleration and high speed of a tiger but the visitor has to explore it step by step like a turtle.'

His co-designer Heike Mutter added: 'The sculpture is an optical experience even from far away and yet it can be walked on via the steps.'

About 120 tons of galvanised steel were used to make the sculpture which is supported by 17 posts.

There are 249 steps on the walkway, which is 220 metres long in total, and LED lights illuminate the handrails at night.
