China Plans to Open World's Highest Glass Bridge
Just when you thought bridges couldn’t get any more scary, China has announced plans to build the world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge. Upon hearing this news, every person with acrophobia let out a silent scream.
The Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon skywalk will stand at 980 feet tall and will connect two cliffs in the Zhangjiajie National Park. Architects plan to make it 1,410 feet long (about .27 miles), so it will be no small feat to walk across.
The National Park, which served as inspiration for the backdrop of the movie Avatar, has breathtaking views of more than 3,000 sandstone pillars and other amazing natural formations.
This bridge is set to open in July. But in the event you want to be frightened before then, here are some other scary bridges from around the world.
