Now this is a great way to experience the Grand Canyon now is it? The Grand Canyon Skywalk is an engineering feat that is sure to give you the thrill of a lifetime. The skywalk is an over-arched pathway running over a cliff constructed March of 2004, it was opened to the public on March 2007. It’s constructed 4,000 feet above the Colorado river, suspended at the very end of the Grand Canyon.
While it’s mostly made of glass, it has passed strict engineering standards making it as steady as it can be. According to their website it can sustain 100MPH winds from 8 directions as well as an 8.0 magnitude of an earthquake within 50 miles.
Now just how much weight can it hold? About as heavy as 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 jets (which is just about 71 million pounds).
To use the Grand Canyon Skywalk will cost you a steep $25 (and it’s not timed so you can opt to stay there until the facility closes.)
