Could You Do It?

I've been on some 'glass floors' on platforms on tall buildings - but this, no way could I do this. And I live on the 35th floor!!

I am terrified of heights, I get vertigo in 2nd floor glass elevators, but this I would have to do....no way could I not!

Fiona said...

Glass elevators, balconies, windows, viewing platforms, bridges, anything but glass floors for me!!!!

I did the glass floor in the Macau Tower and it is just the most disconcerting feeling to be 'walking' on something where you can see hundreds and hundreds of metres below your feet :(

I guess they'll have to employ people to haul you back in, if you freeze up out there on the bend!!!

Nooj said...

Oh MY GOD.. I just about leaked there Fi.. That height would make me peeee in ma panties!!! LOL

Fiona said...

Remind me never to go above the 10th floor with you....I'm not cleaning up your mess woman!!

Kim said...

Wow. That's amazing. I don't know if I could force myself out onto it, and if I did, I doubt I could stroll all the way around.

Steve said...

I would do it!!!

It has to be incredible! :)

Even though I am afraid of heights, and I would be "hugging the glass" so to speak!

DG said...

I could do it, but someone would have to clean up the mess I left afterwards...

LePhare said...

This is not where I would ever want to be but if I was there I just might get talked into it. I've been talked into other things before!

Sunny Delight said...

Fi--it would be the most uncanny stomach churning experience...but if it were there in front of me.. my fright would be so intense..and knowing the view would be absolutely breathtaking...it is a have to thing!

Ian, I promise I will hold your hand the entire time *big smile*

Fiona said...

You people are mad, all mad *L*

I think DG and Nooj should go together, it'll make the cleanup after them easier.

Ian - I think you just got talked into it ;)

Kim (welcome by the way) will need a rescue team and Steve is going to wriggle his way around on his tummy.

Have any of you been on a glass floor? I'm telling you it's the freakiest thing - you know you are safe but you don't believe that you are!!!

Aaaaaaaggggghhhhhhhhhhhh! I think I'm going to be sick!

Fiona said...

Hahahahahahahahah....cleanup on Aisle 9!!!

LePhare said...

There's a glass floor on Blackpool tower, but that's not scary, it so scuffed and hardly that high.

Fiona said...

The one I have been on was over 200metres Ian...not at all scuffed and .....shivers.....just such a freaky feeling.

Mind you they also have a 'skywalk' which is an open platform around the top of the tower where you walk and hang off in the open air, clamped to the structure with a safety wire.

Shudders
