You Probably Won't Be Able to Cross This Bridge Without Freaking Out

HANGING BRIDGES ARE PRETTY TERRIFYING AS IT IS — they sway in the breeze, they shake as you walk on them, and it’s hard not to be painfully aware that such a rickety, fragile structure is keeping you from plummeting to your death. But the Shiniuzhai Geopark in Hunan, China, has upped the ante. They’ve built the world’s longest hanging glass bridge.

Because it’s so terrifying to cross, the bridge has been nicknamed “hero bridge.”

Needless to say, people are freaking out while they cross it.

The bridge, which is 600 feet high and nearly 1,000 feet long, is the first of its kind in China.

The double-layered glass is nearly an inch thick, and is said to be 25 times stronger than window glass.

But, understandably, that does not sound strong enough to a lot of people crossing the bridge.
