I don't know... after the first minute, when it became clear that there weren't going to be any naked women throwing water balloons ("Wait a minute, was she--"SPLAPP!!), I started wishing the guy had a paintball gun.

There is a video (I think of the same rail) of a guy doing this but not using the brakes the whole way down.

He is really cruising.

Everything's always naked women and water balloons with you, isn't it? ... I have no problems with that.

That is one long course. I would have had to stop at least once to use the bathroom.

It's like Action Park never closed; it just moved to Austria.

EDIT: I wonder what mechanism returns the cars to the top of the hill.

If I took a guess I would say; they might take the cart off the track and put it on a gondola with the rider. Once they are at the top they attach it to the track and... whoosh

Snow Bowl needs to build one of these! All we can do here is mountain bike down the mountain in the summer... Or play disc golf...

Exactly what I was thinking! But I'm from North Jersey, too. Check out the link it's one of the most interesting reads.

I went on a small one of those in Switzerland about 10 years ago, it was nowhere near as long as this one.

It looks a bit dangerous to have loose horses near the bottom - they could easily obstruct the track

That looks awesome!

But after seeing how fast it could go in the second vid, I'd hate to get stuck behind someone (like the people from the first vid) who rode the breaks all the way down.
