The Devel's Wheel at Oktoberfest in Munich (Video)

Here is one of the oldest traditions that takes place every year at Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.  It's infamously known as 'The Devel's Wheel.'  Basically what it's all about is a group of people have to sit on a wheel and try to stay on as it spins at a high rate of speed.  Whoever can hang on the longest is the winner.  But, there are other obstacles besides the wheel spinning at a high rate of speed, the contestants have to over come other obstacles that make it almost impossible to stay on.  If you would like more information on The Devel's Wheel and the festivities, checkout the Das muenchen website for a list of other festivities that take place in Munich.
