Skywalk to offer thrilling Grand Canyon view

Life, Science, News

The Hualapai Indian tribe of Arizona and Lochsa Engineering of Nevada will be commissioning a new Skywalk at the Grand Canyon later this year. This horseshoe shapped footbridge will jut 65 feet from the cliff edge and suspend 3,800 feet above the canyon floor, a height more than twice that of the world's tallest skyscraper Taipei 101 located in Taipei Taiwan.

The skywalk is made entirely of glass, including the walking surface.

Need more of a thrill, Lochsa hints at future plans to ratchet up the thrill factor by turning a maintenance car designed to run on a track along the bottom of the Skywalk into a trolley ride for visitors.

This is a must see.
