Grand Canyon Skywalk
Want to walk in the air 4,000 feet (more than four times the height of the Eiffel Tower) above the Colorado River? You may have your chance later this year.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk will open late in 2006 at Grand Canyon West on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. This glass bridge is really horseshoe-shaped tunnel embedded in the wall of the Grand Canyon that will allow guests an almost completely unobstructed view as they walk out over empty air. It is designed to hold some 120 guests at a time, but will be strong enough to support the weight of more than 71 million pounds.
When the Skywalk's visitor center is complete, it will include a café, a restaurant with seating on the edge of the canyon, and other facilities.
While you're in the area, you can take advantage of other activities at Grand Canyon West, including white-water rafting, off-road tours, an Indian village, and wild-west experience.
