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. This is SCARY! Enjoy the ride!

I wouldn't want you to get hurt of course, however (you knew that was going to be there) I would have laughed my ass off if I saw the image flying and twisting and seen the occasional arm or leg flash by. I have ridden several of these here in the States. Many times with no brakes. I have a strong feeling the ones I went on were not nearly as intense as this.
I'm liking this video just for the stellar job on the annotations alone. Normally they instantly piss me off cuz you're watching a video and th-LIKEANDSUBSCRIBE TO GET ENTEREDINTO A GIVEAWAY and it's intrusive as fuck. The were simple, neat and most importantly in the top corners where the screen isn't being used. I looked, i read, and i looked through the channel because the genuienly seemed to care what i thought of the video. I wasnt forced to deepthroat a huge thing that i didn't care about and for that you get a few more views.
Many thanks indeed Jack for the feedback. I tried to use annotations sparingly just to keep viewers interested and engaged, and I am pleased you found them ok. I gather that YouTube will soon be removing annotations from older videos in favour of using the (more recent) end screens...which seem to work ok and I have put those in the top corners too so hopefully my newer videos with end screens also work effectively for my viewers and don't annoy people. I hope you enjoy my content, which now has well over 1000 videos of roller coasters and thrill rides from around the world, plus highlights from my non-coaster travels too.
Is it possible to fall off, or are you strapped in or on, sonehow? At several places in the video I thought, "Man, if he gets flung off by the force of this curve, he's going to be *seriously* injured."
Way better than the ones I’ve experienced here in the US. They are to short and to safety conscious worried about lawsuits and ruins the whole experience. Looks great... one of these days ima hitch a ride to Austria. The Alps look beautiful.
Well, this was really fun...even just to watch made me feel like I am riding 😂
Thank you for not commenting dumbass stuff while the ride 😅👍
Your cheering ( nice voice )between was everytime precisely right at time 😎👍
Would be great but I am sure this ride only operates during the day. There are some smaller alpine coasters in USA that have lights fitted and operate at night...I haven't ridden one but the idea sounds cool!
It's a real shame...there are still some alpine coasters without brakes but most of the new ones have them fitted as standard now, especially those in the USA. Lots of fun though. Did you visit any other alpine coasters?
davidjellis ohhh thats really sad. I had come all the way from India to do this, although I had a lot of fun...but I expected it to be much more thrilling! Your reply explains it...going down without brakes is no more a big thing as even my wife did it without braking :P
They have updated the ride system in recent years so you can't go as fast as I did - it's annoying as most new installations of these rides have magnetic brakes fitted...and many older ones are being retro-fitted with them :-(
LOL!!! Dude, you are INSANE! I was terrified watching from my house. No way would I have done that without brakes. Too much could go wrong and you are d-e-a-d. Glad you made it okay, but that scared the shit out of me. You rock, brother. More balls than me that's for damn sure.
I really do appreciate that there are people like you who film these things for others. I don't travel much, so I enjoy watching videos of others doing the things I can't or won't do. The scenery was unbelievable for sure. Thanks again. You da man.
It was scary at the time...and I still wonder how I managed to film it all so steady given how fast and crazy it was. I gather they don't allow people to film on it now, and I believe they have added some brakes so you cannot go as fast as I did, but the scenery is still wonderful and they are a lot of fun!
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
