    There was a story last week about a building is Missouri that has a glass slide , from 1000ft down.

    That sounds much scarier than this glass bridge.

    I would. Even on the sledge hammered part.

    It appears very well engineered with a significant safety margin.

    Grand Canyon Skywalk, never.

    I'm sure it's a childhood phobia from Roadrunner.

    Sames to be the same layered glass+resin construction, like windshield on a car.

    @nsaspook Skywalk is kind of a ripoff. No pix allowed (WTF) and $100+ to get on it. Walk or take the shuttle to Guano Point instead and walk the rim trail there. EVERY bit as er.. disorienting but very cool nonetheless. Thanx for RR/coyote.

    We didn't. They say it's for safety - no falling off the thing taking selfies etc.. but they will take your picture for a 'small' fee.. How lovely of them.
