Dare to Ride China’s 4000 Foot Glass Bottom Waterslide?

China is all about glass bottomed walk ways, and even a waterslide! They’ve been sprouting up everywhere.

In this photo taken on June 1, 2017, a couple walks on a glass-bottomed skywalk, certified as the world’s longest, at the Ordovician park in Wansheng. Hovering more than 100 meters (328 feet) above a gaping chasm, a glass-bottomed skywalk has set a record in China while delighting and terrifying visitors. Guinness World Records certified the bridge in southwest Chongqing province as the longest cantilevered glass-bottomed skywalk on April 2, measuring at 69.6 meters (228 feet).
