Tour guides at the world’s highest and longest glass-bottomed bridge in Zhangjiajie have an unorthodox method of helping people conquer their fears that the bridge isn’t strong enough to hold them or that the glass will crack beneath their feet.
Officials in China wanted to show the attraction was safe, so they invited BBC’s Dan Simmons to put the glass panels to the test. The video shows the top layer of glass shattering when hit. Watch to see what happens next.
Of course, even after a few more whacks, the bottom layers of the glass stayed intact, and the glass platform remained stable.
The bridge, which stretches 1,410 feet between two mountains in the Tianmenshan National Forest Park in Zhangjiajie, has been engineered to withstand even more powerful blows as it is composed of three layers of ultra-strong glass.
Wouldn’t want to be on the bridge when this happened.
