Mercedes-Benz World to feature G-Class ‘Iron Mountain’ Vertical Experience

Article by Anita Panait, on July 24, 2013

Only a few people have experienced pushing a Mercedes-Benz G-Class to the limits. But for ten days starting July 29, 2013, visitors to Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey could experience being passengers in a G-Class off-roader being pushed to its limits through the G-Class Vertical Experience.

The G-Class Vertical Experience will see the vehicle climb up a man-made “iron mountain,” tackle a mid-air see-saw and descend 45 degrees down.

G-Class Vertical Experience is a result of the quest by Mercedes-Benz engineers to look for ways to test the G-Class’ capability of handling any terrain. The carmaker’s engineers replicated a mountain near the Graz plant in Austria where the G-Class is being tested all year round, resulting to the G-Class Vertical Experience. The artificial iron mountain truly provides a challenge for Mercedes’ vaunted 4x4.

The carmaker will open the G-Class Vertical Experience to the public on July 29, 2013, allowing visitors to Mercedes-Benz World to discover themselves the feeling of driving a 4x4 vehicle 10 meters up into the air. A visitor just has to shell out £10 to take part in the G-Class Vertical Experience.

A visitor could also opt for an adult or Under 16s Driving Experience for just £5 per person. The G-Class Vertical Experience is one of newest attractions and exhibitions at Mercedes-Benz World. Other attractions at Mercedes-Benz World include the Stars and their Cars new celebrity exhibition, the Silver Arrows Display Team driving performance and the Silver Arrows Hot Lap experience.
