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.”

Anyway, thanks, Brice, for sharing the awesome video. Don’t mind the haters, okay?
