If you’re terrified of heights, then it’s in your best interest to just stay away from this glass bridge in China. Frankly speaking, there could be thousands of scary things you can do without a hitch but probably not this one. It’s simply not for you.
The world’s longest glass bridge just opened in Shiniuzhai Geopark in Chinese province of Hunan. There is a pedestrian glass bridge in London too but this one now holds the crown of being longest glass bridge in the world. It’s about 984 feet (300 meters) long and around 590 feet (180 meters) high.
A few brave tourists became the first visitors to cross this new glass-bottomed suspension bridge. And they were terrified. Well, if I was there, I would be too.
This pedestrian bridge had previously been made of wood, linking the two peaks of Stone Buddha Mountain, but 11 engineers working 12 hours a day converted this old wooden bridge into glass. Tourists who took to the foot bridge when it opened to the public on Thursday were “scared to move”. But there is nothing to worry since it is reportedly 25 times stronger than regular window glass.
Many of pictures show visitors struck with terror and many were simply denied crossing this pedestrian bridge despite the fact that it’s build to withstand impact. Tourists were also issued special protective footwear on the first day.
The developers plan for the glass bridge to host fashion shows, and they planned a specific area for bungee jumping.
