You Can Climb South Korea’s Huge Walkable Rollercoaster

If you’re a thrill seeker and you’re looking for a different kind of rush, you might want to check out this walkable rollercoaster.

It’s called the SpaceWalk and you can find it in Hwanho Park in Pohang, South Korea and it’s the biggest contemporary artwork in the country.

Artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth, who hail from Germany, designed the structure.

Visitors can walk along the coaster’s 1090-foot long path on a set of stairs where the tracks on a thrill ride would normally be. And they can choose two different paths to venture on, one a little more laid back than the other option, which can be a little bit intense.

The path has a peak of 230 feet from which visitors can enjoy scenic views of sights around Pohang and at night, the tracks are lit up to give the structure the appearance of a real rollercoaster.

Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth designed the project to make visitors feel as if they are walking through space but the finished product obviously also resembles a roller coaster.

What a cool idea!
