From someone with a major fear of heights, I was getting a little antsy just reading this.

i have the complete opposite of a fear of heights. i get off on them.

if/when i go to chicago, this will definitely be my 1st stop.

i cant wait to see the glass walkway they have built at the grand canyon either.

the tallest building i have been in was in the US Steel building in pgh and the view was breathtaking. i cant even imagine what a rush the sears tower would be.

OMG that is just awesome!!! I may just have to take a long weekend trip to Chicago just to see it! If that doesn't get me over my fear of height, nothing will - LOL!

Thanks, BF for posting the link! :drink:

No way in hell I'd go out on that balcony - I have a pretty big fear of heights, and the first thing I'd think of is that I'd take one step and I plunge 1300 feet to my death. You daredevils can have it!

I actually got that tingly feeling in the pit of my stomach just reading about it.

Sweaty palms!

Still, I'd walk out there...it's all about confronting your fears.

Although the idea is pretty damn cool, that is a horrible view. And I'm in LA.

Been on glass domes in a high rise many time. No big deal, unless you trip and start sliding toward the edge.

I think I would freeze and not be able to move if I walked out there...and why does all the pictures have to show a bunch of kids out there on it, makes me feel like a wuss for not wanting to do it, lol

LOL..I thought their parents were wusses. The girl laying down and looking straight down gave me chills. I could not do that and not get real shaky.
