Grand Canyon's Glass Walkway to Open Next March

December 15, 2006
Members of a Native American group based in a remote part of Arizona are hoping to entice more tourists by inviting visitors to step off the edge of the Grand Canyon.

The 1,500-member Hualapai tribe announced last week that the Skywalk—a giant, 30-million-dollar steel-and-glass walkway—will open to the public in March 2007.

The Skywalk will jut out 70 feet (21 meters) from the canyon rim, allowing tourists to go for a stroll with nothing between their feet and the Colorado River—4,000 feet (1,220 meters) below—except for four inches (ten centimeters) of glass.

The Hualapai, or "People of the Tall Pines," are working with the Las Vegas, Nevada-based Destination Grand Canyon to market the Skywalk and draw in valuable tourist dollars.

Many other tribes have turned their government-sanctioned right to run casinos into a major revenue source. But the Hualapai's remote location has undermined their efforts to host gambling.

Few tourists were willing to make the drive to the reservation with Las Vegas so close. And once they did, said Hualapai tribal member Robert Bravo, they didn't stay long.

Are these people fuckin' nuts? :stunned:


If given the chance, would you ever step out onto that thing?

Are you that type of person in a group of friends who is the first to jump all over a dangerous/crazy situation or are you the type of person that just sits back and waits for others to do shit first?

There's more I want to say but I'll "finish this post later".

I expected this thread to be about sucking balls. :(

I honestly hope that thing falls. That would be pretty funny. I'd love to turn on CNN and see the headline "LOL 20 bitches fell off the Grand Canyon." :hysteric:

As far as walking on it... I would love to try... but I'll be honest... most likely, I'd either have a heart attack (since I'm afraid of heights) or I'd give my family one..... :err:

Stephie 21 Dec 2006 02:15 AM

I wonder which one is crazier....the One who walks on it or the one who builds it?

RTT 21 Dec 2006 02:17 AM

I'm not quite sure if i'd have the guts to walk on that thing.


I'm afraid of heights like crazy.

sparx 21 Dec 2006 05:10 AM

I could walk on it. I couldn't look down for a few seconds, but I could walk on it.

I don't sit back and wait for others to act first. I usually act first.

CK 21 Dec 2006 05:13 AM

thats awesome....

GinoCan 21 Dec 2006 06:59 AM

for 30-million-dollar that motherfucker better hold me up there...i'm not afraid of height...i actually worked at an amusement park as a supervisor of a ride that's 250 feet in the air and it drops you straight down with 60 mph...and i test ride that shit everyday so i got used to being up in the air...and that structure looks awesome...

Spear 21 Dec 2006 01:45 PM

No.

pyXL 21 Dec 2006 02:36 PM

I would have no problem going out on that. I'm pretty good with heights.

Side Effect 21 Dec 2006 02:59 PM

I'd love walking out on that thing.

Trevelbond 21 Dec 2006 03:07 PM

I read about that in Popular Science...

No way in hell I'd ever go out on that thing.

STICK 21 Dec 2006 03:33 PM

I would parachute off of that.

trowa 21 Dec 2006 04:38 PM

I would walk on it

Jethro 21 Dec 2006 06:45 PM

March 2007? I'm going to the Grand Canyon next summer I think. I'll be sure to walk on that.

Scuzz 21 Dec 2006 07:07 PM

I'd walk on it...hell, I'd probably jump on it a few times to test the fine craftmanship. And if it broke and I fell, well, I guess it was just my time.
