Slope Car was a steel side friction roller coaster located at Tegarayama Yuen in Himeji, Hyogo, Japan.

Design

The ride is unique in the fact that it has no rails, rather it uses side friction to keep the trains on the track. This was the method used by many older wooden coasters in the early 20th century.
