Because walking across a suspension bridge isn’t scary enough, now there’s one that you can see through. Nothing like being able to see ALL. THE. WAY. DOWN.
Swaying over a vertical drop of seven hundred feet, a new bridge in China that opened last month is also the world’s longest at 1,600 feet, and not for the faint of heart.
Who cares if it’s over one and a half inches thick? Yikes!
The Hongyagu bridge in China’s Hebei Province connects two mountain peaks and has some visitors on their knees trying to cross, although they’ll all be wearing special ‘shoe gloves’ to protect the glass surface from scratches or cracks. *shudder*
The bridge is safety-rated to hold up to two thousand people, but only 500-600 visitors will be allowed on at the same time – and staff will be positioned along the span to help anyone frozen in fear.
If you can handle that, you might be ready for this glass-bottom bridge … it ‘cracks’ as you walk across it! NO WAY NOPE NOOOOO
