Amazing alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria, riding with no brakes! All your questions are answered here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2unbiYChnX8 Off-ride footage of the ride is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA-k3G1F7k0 BBC Story here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-16183431 Eastern Daily Press Articles here: http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/lowestoft_man_s_life_is_one_giant_roller_coaster_1_2719237 http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/life_is_one_giant_roller_coaster_for_lowestoft_man_1_1166785 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.
davidjellis (2 days ago)
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 ride that coaster this week?😂
davidjellis (4 days ago)
There was indeed a lot of snow...so there will be plenty of skiing going on I guess, but the summerrodelbahn only opens in 'sommer' (summer)!
Kim Jong-un (4 days ago)
+davidjellis ah okay But I heard in the news that there was a lot of snowfall in the Alps this week😆
davidjellis (4 days ago)
sadly not - it's only open during the summer months

The outward force will make your cart toss off the path at one point .
davidjellis (1 month ago)
You might think so, but it can't happen unless the structure of the cart fails

Really makes me wanna just put it in break and check out the woods and chill for a bit then get back on
CinemaDemocratica (2 months ago)
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."
davidjellis (2 months ago)
Funnily the same thought crossed my mind when riding it! There is a seatbelt that goes across your lap...it's secure but that doesn't make it any less scary!

When you need to get down to the bottom ahead of the cable car.
billy mathes (3 months ago)
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.
davidjellis (3 months ago)
The alps are indeed stunning...alpine coasters were (of course) invented in the alps...so they have a lot of much longer ones over in Europe than in the US.

That's one I haven't ridden yet!
Fury 325 (4 months ago)
davidjellis I hope I get to ride One of those. I’ve ridden The Goats on the roof & the Smokey mountain Alpine coasters.
davidjellis (4 months ago)
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!
Fury 325 (4 months ago)
Looks Amazing! Definitely A top 10 Coaster in Europe. Looks as Intense as I305.

how Many rollercoasters have You ridden?
Fury 325 (4 months ago)
davidjellis I bet it Is.
It takes 3:59 minutes to ride this with no breaks dam with breaks it might be like 6 minutes long?
davidjellis (4 months ago)
The first video I saw of this ride was a few months before I rode it...that video was about 6 minutes long...it depends on how much you brake of course, but can easily take 6 minutes
I really want to ride that

That is an awfully skinny track to be running with no brakes! I would hope the cars are very well balanced on the track! Why did it stop when it did? Did you crash? I certainly hope not!!
davidjellis (5 months ago)
The video stopped as I had to use my hands to apply the brakes at the end of the track...I didn't crash but had to brake hard as I was entering the exit point at full speed.

SMALL TREE ON THE TRACK WOULD BE A DISASTER
davidjellis (5 months ago)
a small tree on any track wouldn't be good news :-) That's why the track is checked before it opens each day

I wonder if there was any point during that where the thought process shifted from "what are these brakes you speak of?" to "yeah, now would be a really good time to hit the brakes"
davidjellis (6 months ago)
I did consider on some of those sharp turns and drops if a little braking was perhaps wiser than going full speed!
greasy grove (6 months ago)
please tell me those have seatbelts
davidjellis (6 months ago)
Yes they do - and you need them!
Tiger (7 months ago)
How the the G forces not throw you out on the curves. Do you have to lean into corners? Are you strapped in??
Tiger (7 months ago)
brilliant! I'd want to do it continuously !
davidjellis (7 months ago)
You wear a seatbelt and the track is banked...it still carries some force though!
suraj singh bhui (7 months ago)
I just did it today! No brakes! It does apply the brakes automatically on aome points though, that was a bummer!
suraj singh bhui (7 months ago)
davidjellis No, this is the only Alpine coaster I've been on. But I'll sure as hell try more of them!
davidjellis (7 months ago)
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?
suraj singh bhui (7 months ago)
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
davidjellis (7 months ago)
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 :-(
JarAxe (7 months ago)
"Do you think that's wise??" No. I don't. I think that's dumb. Brakes are there for a reason. However, I don't doubt it was a nice ride.

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.
davidjellis (11 months ago)
Cheers I Q :-)
I Q (11 months ago)
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.
davidjellis (11 months ago)
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!
Reel Eazy (11 months ago)
He's still going. Even 3 years later no brakes.
