Single Pipe Alpine Coaster in Mieders Austria

at 2:17 pm. Filed under What Were They Thinking

This downhill machine looks like so much fun but I would hate to see what happens if a deer walks across the path of the driver, those small brake levers wouldn’t stop it very quickly when you build up the type of speed we can see in the video. The video above is of a person who went right down not using the brakes at all.

“This is a single-pipe alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria. You reach the summit via a cablecar and then sit on a small car with a brake lever and off you go. Having ridden it once using a little braking, I decided to try it a second time without using the brakes.”

    Having been to Austria for the past 15 Summers, I have wanted to try the Rodelbahn. Now I’m sold!

    Oh this is great!!

    Wonder how they get the “cart” to stay upright? I’d love this!

  3. George Johnson Says:

    Never mind… I thought the track was a round tube, it’s not.

  4. Ilde Says:


    There are also ‘Sommerrodelbahnen’ in tubes.
    Have been at some of them, cant remember the location… too many years…

  5. Per Jensen Says:

    If you even had enough braking to try avoiding a deer, you would probably just pass out braking that hard, and laying down….

  6. Jesse Says:

    How do they avoid collisions with the other cars on the track?

    If you are a thrill seeker this looks like the ride you want!!
