Glass Box Suspends Thrillseekers Over The French Alps [Video]

Experience what it feels like to step off a mountain cliff 3,000 feet in the air.

Tourists who find themselves in the French Alps should make their way to peak of Aiguille du Midi, where this death-defying attraction recently opened its doors.┬áThe new installation is a crystal box suspended over 3,000 feet above the ground, and can withstand winds of more than 220km/hour. Now known as Europe’s tallest attraction, “Step Into the Void” is only reachable by cable car, and will take visitors almost 20 minutes to get to.


Inspired by the “Skywalk,” which is the glass walkway that overlooks the Grand Canyon, architect Pierre-Yves Chays thought it would be rewarding to bring the idea to France.


If the Alps are outside your grasp, here is a video that displays the breathtaking views seen behind three layers of tempered glass.
