  4. ukee

    I was just in AZ about a month and went to the Grand Canyon Viewing Sidewalk. Crazy intense and insane scenery from up there.

    Well put together and quite a spectacular piece of architecture, to say the least. Much of the sidewalk was glass-like too :)

    I like the Willis Tower Skydeck…looks very scary…but very exciting….

    it’s the sears tower, not the willis tower, and by the way, those are all incredible

    The Sears Tower was renamed recently Willis Tower, Cole. All of them amazing. I just saw that there’s a window pane in Aurland after someone posted it… Quite scary, anyway!

  11. Jamface

    @cole No, they renamed the Sears Tower a while ago.

    I’ve been to the Infinity Room at the House on the Rock. I went when I was young and I would never go again. Despite the laws of physics and cantilevering and whatnot I’d expect it to fall over when I’m in it. In fact I’d be hard pressed to get on any of these!

  17. abercrombieandfitchlondon

    gosh, they all look so awefully high for me.
    the secenes are gorgeous, though.

  21. Karin L.

    Creative, innovational, sensational and I would like to experience them all!

  22. Reilly

    Cole, you ought to get your facts straight before saying someone’s wrong, when truly you’re the one who is.

    P.S. The Aurland Lookout has a plexiglass railing. Any one of these places could be suicide spots, or a drunk wandering over it.

  23. nEthing4Her

    No problem.. those handrails seem to go all the way down. LOL

  24. Toby Simpson

    well, there are so many tourist attractions that you find on asia and europe. i would really love to travel a lot “`’
