Scariest Glass Walkways In The World

If you have a head for heights and a fearless heart, then stepping onto these glass walkways should be an insanely thrilling experience! If not, then hello vertigo! So tell us, what would it take for you to walk these glass planks?

1. Glass walkway at China's Tianmen Mountain Park
How does the world look like from a height of 4,700 ft.? Take the high road to find out! Walk the amazing and incredibly scary transparent glass pathway that runs alongside the Tianmen Mountain in Zhangjiajie, China. The 200 ft. long walkway is a mere 3 feet wide and allows dizzying views of the valley and wilderness beneath.

2. Grand Canyon Skywalk
The Grand Canyon looks even better when you view it from the top, on a glass walkway! The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a transparent horse-show shaped bridge with one end anchored to the side of the canyon, and the other, extending out at an elevation of 500 ft. That's where you get to view the dizzying vertical drop from!

3. Cliffwalk, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver
Cliffwalk takes you high above the towering rainforests of Vancouver and gives you a sweeping view of its lush ecosystems. The Cliffwalk is one of the scariest attractions to the North Vancouver's Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Swooping 300 metres above the Capilano River, Cliffwalk is a series of narrow walkways interspersed with glass-bottomed platforms, bridges and stairs. It remains anchored to a cliff at just 16 points.

4. Mountain Dew Skybridge
The Mountain Dew Skybridge in Pigeon Fort stands at an elevation of over 400 ft., with glass at the end, and stunning views of the surrounding area. It's broad and not as scary as some of the other walkways - until you look down, that is.

5. Observation Deck at Willis Tower, Chicago
'The Edge', is a series of incredibly scary glass boxes that are attached to the Skydeck of The Willis Tower. You literally have the world, at your feet. An immediately exciting, as well as terrifying experience!
