.......................................................luge.
luge?
.
in queenstown, n.z. (home of the fun excursion), somebody decided to build a concrete luge course high above the city, on what they call "the skyline."
.
for $9, you get a helmet, your own, personal luge, and a 12-second driving lesson. ..then, baby, it's all you!
.
the concrete luge is a toy for grown-ups (and kids) that can be mastered quickly (even by a rhode island driver). ..it's fun as hell!

left: part of the luge course. ..if you didn't want to luge before, has this photo swayed you (just a little?).

below (revealed): the complex, non-motorized propulsion system of the concrete luge:
.
* green = push forward = "go"
.
* red = pull back = "stop"
