Well, it seems Mercedes-Benz has something similar that will make the Terrapod look puny by comparison.

We\'re talking about the Iron Mountain, which replicates a mountain near the German carmaker\'s plant in Graz, Austria, where its G-Class SUV \"is tested all year round.\"

Officially known as the \"G-Class Vertical Experience,\" this theme park-like ride lets the G-Class passengers climb 10m up the structure and tackle a midair seesaw before experiencing a 45-degree descent back down to earth.

Check out the videos below to see the Iron Mountain being driven on.
