Grand Canyon Skywalk

Postby WharfRat » Mon Dec 05, 2005 10:19 am

Do YOU have the balls to walk out onto a glass bridge suspended on a rock wall four-fifths of a mile straight up from the Colorado river?

Anybody heard of this thing before? Says it's supposed to be completed early in 2006.

I read about it on Snopes.com a few weeks ago as a "confirmed myth." It's the real deal and apparently it will be very safe... but undeniably freaky. Not suggested for those afraid of heights, but I think that it would be a really cool way to down into the canyon.

Isn't there a glass floor in part of the CN Tower in Toronto?

Can I get a canadian to confirm this?

Glass floor above the Grand Canyon? Big deal! In the QC we got Skybridge!

This project was widely voted in the newspaper's year-end poll as the greatest waste of taxpayer money.

That would be awesome. I may finally have to make a trip to the Grand Canyon if they put that in.

What an eyesore! That said, it would be pretty cool to walk on and check out.

That is awful if they do build something like this. Why humans always find a way to something up is beyond me.

Agreed, leave the damn natural landmarks alone. Won't be surprised if they start an amusement park in Yellowstone sometime soon and one of the rides will be riding Old Faithful. "Ride Ye Olde Faithful".

Yep, CN Tower had glass floor in there. And I thought that was scary. :-o
