China is Going to Open the Highest and Longest Glass Bottom Bridge in the World

Forget glass ceilings; glass floors are all the rage.

The CN Tower has one, the Canadian Rockies has one, Chicago’s Willis Tower has one, and now China’s Zhangjiajie National Park wants one.  And come this summer, they’re going to get it. A BIG one.

And probably at half the cost too.

This July, in the Wulingyuan area of China’s Hunan province, tourists and adrenalin-junkies alike will have access to the world’s longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge; the Grand Canyon of Zhangjiajie Skywalk. 

The bridge, which has been “designed to be invisible as possible – a white bridge disappearing into the clouds,” is 1,410 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 984 feet above land; that’s only 138 feet lower than the CN Tower, and it’s suspended over a gigantic canyon.   

They expect the bridge to be able to hold about 800 visitors at once, give or take an American. 

And all visitors to the skywalk, once construction is complete, will have the opportunity to also enjoy the world’s highest bungee jump.

Nope. Not joking.
