Awesome! I wonder if there is some mechanism that keeps the sled from rotating sideways, or is it like riding a bike on a rail?

BUT — when I saw the headline “Your Morning Ride” I was hoping for a video of Joe Manganiello…

Well, I am certainly awake now!

What or they sitting on? Does it stabilize itself somehow? There are lots of pointy bits off to the side at times …

Boo! How does it end? For the guy who made it to fade out before he stops is lame.
Thanks for the video, that looks like something to do on vacation!

What the heck is this? A monorail built for one? Or does this guy have prehensile butt cheeks?
Whatever, it looks like great fun, but yeah, I wanted to see how he stopped at the end of the ride.

I think you sit in a chair similar to a roller coaster.

LOL! Here’s the “off the coaster” video of it at David Jellis’ youtube channel: http://youtu.be/eA-k3G1F7k0 . Looks like a blast!

If you want to see what it looks like to someone not on the ride go to the davidjellis youtube channel – he’s the guy who did the first person ride above. I wanted to see what I couldn’t see, too.
A little more info: “Surrounded by the villages of Mieders, Fulpmes, Schönberg and Matrei lies a wonder and magical hiking and recreational landscape. However, the best thing about it is the coolest roller coaster for miles around. In front of the impressive mountain backdrop of the majestic Serles, it runs along a route of 2.8 kilometres on the steepest summer tobogganing run in the Alps to quickly overcome the 640 metre difference in elevation. The top speed reached is 42 km/h. 40 steep curves provide a really special kick. The course of the tract, which exploits every twist in the landscape, imparts the breathtaking feeling of flying just above the ground.”

Part of me says AWESOME while the other part says “Hmm, do they maintain this thing as well as say, Great America would?” Love it.

This is in Austria, you can bet it is better maintained than your bridges.
You know, those that spontaneously collapse…

If you guys that are asking details about the video would click on the YouTube link, you could have all of your questions answered. There are a couple of vids of this ride there.
