Looking for a fun outdoor activity with your friends? Well, we’ve got you covered if you are from Switzerland – or are at least willing to travel to the country.
Tin toboggans are particularly popular in Switzerland right now. In fact, you can find them in more than 24 locations, some of which stay open throughout the entire year. Tracks run for about 1 kilometer in length and you may reach a speed up to 40 kilometers per hour as you slide down.
Brice Milleson, a tourist from Ohio, shared a video on his YouTube page showing him riding one of these awesome mountain coasters.
YouTuber Brice Milleson shared a video of him sliding down the alps riding a mountain coaster.
It’s pretty obvious that the guy had a great time!
Go watch the fun video here:
Since being published on YouTube last February 2015, the video has since gone viral gaining over 631,000 views and counting.
Some viewers, however, took the time to bash Brice’s music of choice for the video.
Brice apologized on the video description saying:
“I had no intention of this going viral so chill on the music lol, at least you can mute it.”
If I had my way, I’d totally want to try this one just for the heck of it but alas, Switzerland’s totally too far from my area.
Anyway, thanks, Brice, for sharing the awesome video. Don’t mind the haters, okay?

A Sneak Peek Into the 10 New Best Beaches Around the World According to TripAdvisor
Beach trips are the best kinds of vacations ever. Check out the list of the most popularly visited beaches around the globe according to a travel website.
A trip to the beach will always be the best kind of vacation any individual can ever have. The warm sun that kisses your face, the powdery sand underneath your toes, and of course the cool, crystal blue ocean that makes you smile every time you take a dip. Beach vacations are always relaxing and easier to book because all you have to think about is packing your swimsuits, tanning lotions, sunblock and a pair of shades and you're actually good to go. It's also less costly and a lot easier to maintain especially if all you want to do is chill under the sun for a few hours before going swimming.
The only problem is, with hundreds of beaches and long coastlines available to anyone, which beach do you pick for your next trip?
