On March 28 the Grand Canyon Skywalk (the worlds highest manmade structure -- by more than 2,300 feet!) will open to the public. The glass, 70-foot long, open-air Skywalk is suspended 4,000 feet above the canyon floor, providing visitors with a staggering 720-degree view.

The Skywalk is operated by the Hualapai Tribe, which owns and protects more than one million acres of land throughout the Grand Canyons western rim. During construction of the Skywalk, architects and engineers were concerned not only with safety, but also with creating a structure that would balance well with its natural surroundings and protect the values held by the Hualapai. As a result, the structure can support the weight of 71 fully loaded 747 airplanes (thats a whopping 71 million pounds!), withstand winds up to 100 miles per hour and survive a magnitude 8.0 earthquake.

would you try this out, makes me feel sick thinking about it.

I think this was posted a couple of days ago. On the BBC site I voted yes to braving the walk - as did the vast majority. I really really want to see the Grand Canyon anyway :)

It's like something from a sci-fi movie.

Saw this on the news last night. I would like to think I would walk it but it is more likely I would end up crawling :roll:

i went over the canyon in a small plane last year when i went to vegas

i would not use this

the reason behind it is you cant appreciate the scale of the canyon from the floor

in the air you can see really how vast it is

I wanted Knewbold to be dragging a HUKD banner across the sky, then realised I'm meant to be working right now, lol.
