Is this the world’s most terrifying attraction? China’s £2.6 million glass-bottomed bridge built over a 980ft valley will also have a bungee platform and a SWING
While the thought of walking on a see-through bridge at nearly 1,000 feet high gives you jelly legs, its ambitious operator is proposing an even more extreme plan.
The much-anticipated glass-bottomed structure, soon to be open over a 300-metre-high valley (984 feet) in China, is expected to be equipped with a bungee platform and a giant swing.
Both facilities are due to be added to the transparent structure after its grand opening, according to a spokesman from Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, the bridge’s operating company.
The bungee platform, which will be attached to the bridge, is expected to be 260 metres high (853 feet), said the spokesman.
If the plan materialises, the platform will be 23 metres (75 feet) higher than that of the Macau Tower, the highest commercial jumping spot in the world.
The swing is planned to be nearly 170 metres (558 feet) long and is due to be suspended from the bridge towards the valley.
Both the bungee jump and the swing will be open to the public next year, according to the company.
