Step Into the Void-Incredible View in French Alps

Step Into the Void-Incredible View in French Alps
A brand new installation in the French Alps, called Step Into the Void, opens today for those who are not afraid of heights.  Of course, when you step into the box the most vertigo-inducing feeling will come when you look straight down through the glass floor to the dizzying view 3,395 feet (or 1,035 meters) below.


The attraction was inspired by the Grand Canyon's Skywalk and was three years in the making. It was designed by Pierre-Yves Chays who custom built it "to the highest standards for safety and clarity." If you're brave enough to enter this glass cube, you'll of course be rewarded with one of the most breathtaking 360° views in all of the world - of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.
