Hochschaubahn at the Wiener Prater amusement park is one of only a few roller coasters left in the world that operate with an on-board brakeman who slows and stops the train. This classic side-friction wooden roller coaster features three drops, including a double down and seven tunnels. The roller coaster's mountain facade is a model of the largest mountain in Austria - Grossglockner.
