Not all tourist attractions are created equal. Some are a tame stroll through the park and others — well they could just scare the crap out of you. This article is focusing on the latter with a list from Business Insider on some of the most terrifying tourist attractions in the world.
When it comes to the Coiling Dragon Cliff skywalk in Zhangjiajie, China, you may not want to look down.
“In the northwest of China's Hunan province, visitors can talk a leisurely stroll along the walkway attached to Tianmen Mountain — 4,700 feet above the ground.The glass-bottomed walkway is more than 300 feet long and only about five feet wide, providing an experience that's sure to leave you clutching the rockface for support,” writes Chris Weller for Business Insider.
There’s also the Titlis Cliff Walk in Engelberg, Switzerland, another high in the sky attraction.
“Noteworthy for its distinction as Europe's highest suspension bridge, the attraction sits more than 9,000 feet above sea level,” writes Weller.
Dinner in the Sky is a little bit tamer than a 9,000-foot-high walk above the cliffs in the alps.
“In cities all around the world, you can pay to strap in around a dining room table as a chef prepares a gourmet meal directly in the center for you and 21 other guests. All this while dangling from a crane 180 feet in the air,” reports Business Insider.
Apparently, when it comes to terrifying tourists, people take to the sky. Other list highlights include one of the world’s highest bungee jump and the tallest tower in the world. Want to read more? Go here.
