Grand Canyon Skywalk

Get ready to see the Grand Canyon in a whole new way. The Skywalk, a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway, will offer you a straight-down view from more than 4,000 feet above the Grand Canyon floor. The Skywalk will extend 70 feet from the canyon rim.

The Skywalk is located in an area owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe. It is set to open to the public on March 28th.

Entrance to The Skywalk will cost $25 per person, in addition to the cost of a Grand Canyon West entrance package. Admittance is first come, first serve for walk up visitors, but people will be allowed to make reservations. A total of 120 people will be allowed on the bridge at one time.

My curiosity says, yes. However, surrounded by such beauty, I think it looks hideous! What won't we do?
Mother Nature provides us grandeur and we turn it into a Disney adventure. The tribe that owns it needs money, but that thing cost a fortune. Would rather they bought out some casino with their funds.

To answer my own question, I would like to say that I would, but I can't guarantee that I wouldn't change my mind once I was standing there.

However, I am with you h~. I think they've just added something gaudy to something beautiful. I don't care if they need money or not....this wasn't the way to go about it. But, it's their reservation I suppose....

Yeah, it will mar the natural beauty. And I wonder if you have to sign a "I will not sue if I or a family member should fall to a terrifying death if said skywalk should fall" disclaimer before they'll allow you on.

I would do it. I think it would be cool to fly. Partly because of the views. This would satisfy that. Way COOL!!!!
