Chinese Glass-bottom Bridge (Probably) Won’t Collapse

by Shane McGlaun

China isn’t exactly known for its safety guidelines and building standards. It’s more known for cutting corners and having few protections in place for people and the environment. I’d be a bit nervous about walking on a bridge that was 590 feet in the air and had a glass bottom no matter where it was.

Knowing that the glass panels probably came from the vendor with the lowest bid would make the trek even more terrifying. The glass-bottomed bridge opened at the Stone Buddha Mountain in Shiniuzhai Geopark, and spans 984 feet across.

The glass panels making up the walkway are said to be 25 times stronger than window glass and replaced the wood floor that was previously installed. Visitors who walk across the bridge are given special booties to cover their feet, and there are protective guard rails along the sides.

Still, some visitors have been so afraid, they had to be pulled along to cross the bridge. Would you walk across this bridge?
