We've seen a walkable roller coaster and those with sheer drops. Here is a wonderful looking ride that uses rollers to propel you down the side of a hill. The ride is at Odawara Suwanohara Park in Odawara, Japan. The roller slide is free to ride. The video is beautifully filmed by YouTube channel Eiji using a steady-cam. The ride is fast, fun, and it probably feels like one of those roller massage things. You then get a good workout climbing the hill again. Every park with a hill should have one of these!
