The world’s longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge finally opened on Saturday in Zhangjiajie, nearly a year behind schedule. Tourists were pretty excited.
The 430-meter-long bridge spans Zhangjiajie’s Grand Canyon, hanging 300 meters above the canyon floor. It was supposed to be open last October, and then “early this year,” but was only “completed” in May.
Reassured by stress tests administered by SUVs and sledgehammers in recent months, 8,000 brave tourists have crossed the bridge each day since it’s been opened. The line to get to be one of those 8,000 is long.
Some have resorted to lining up overnight to be one of the lucky few.
