Grand Canyon Skywalk Fun Facts

The following list contains the top six Grand Canyon Skywalk fun facts

  1. The skywalk was completed on March 20, 2007. However, the general public was not allowed to preview this masterpiece until March 28, 2007.
  2. The skywalk is the world’s highest man-made structure, standing at 2,300 ft.
  3. The skywalk is a glass-bottomed structure on the West Rim of the canyon that extends over the canyon and you can peer down at the canyon below.
  4. When you look at the floor you can see a thousand foot drop below the glass walkway.
  5. You will also enjoy the incredible views around the building south of the entrance where you have the opportunity (that is if you are a thrill seeker) to walk up to the very edge of the chasm with no guard rails. (An acrophobia person should skip this one.)
  6. Photography is strictly prohibited. The claim is that they don’t want anything falling into the canyon. However, the reason may be more related to their attempt to up sell you some of their own “homemade” photos. Either way it is quite an experience.
