In Duisburg, Germany, there is an unusual structure called Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain. It looks for all the world like a roller coaster, but it’s actually stairs, and it’s considered a sculpture. You can climb on all parts of it except the inverted portion of the loop, for obvious reasons.
We never did figure out why they named it Tiger & Turtle.
Have you ever been to Tiger & Turtle? Why do you think it was given that name?

The name is a reference to the dynamic of a tiger and the slowness of a turtle.
The sculpture is the dynamic part and the visitors are the turtles.
Those locks are everywhere!!!
Wow… bizarre! I never knew that existed.
The “operating instructions” destroy all the fun. But then again, maybe that’s where society is heading. Organized fun. Freaky, crazy, cool … but keep to the rules. If you don’t … Danger Everywhere.
Give some of the operating instructions, I think this place is on top of a fully-functional secret lair. It’s a big metal thing that acts a power source and a distraction from what’s really underneath? Or maybe I read too many comic books? 😛 These are very neat, kinda surreal photos.
