2. Skydecks at the top of the Willis (Sears) Tower, Chicago
“The Ledge” is a glass balcony suspended 1300 feet in the air. Although the glass panes can take a weight of 10,000 pounds, visitors still have a hard time keeping their stomach settled as they look down on helicopters and roof tops.
3. Half Dome Mountain, Yosemite National Park, USA
At its peak, this ancient granite dome rises more than 4,700 feet above the valley floor. Various cliffs offer a vantage point to take in the beautiful national park.
4. Insanity at the Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas, USA
Insanity is a ride that spins you at speeds of up to three G’s. It also hangs 64 feet from the side of the Stratosphere Hotel and 900 feet above the ground. Yikes.
5. Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado, USA
This bridge crosses the 1000 foot deep Royal Gorge, making it the highest bridge in the United States. Few are brave enough to go across the gorge in a bridge, let alone a cable car.
I didn’t know I could be afraid of heights while looking through a computer screen. Still, these places are incredible!
