China's Record-Breaking Glass Bridge Closes Due To 'Overwhelming Demand'

The record-breaking structure hanging over China's Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon has closed Friday, just 13 days after it opened to the public on August 20.








"We're overwhelmed by the volume of visitors," a spokesperson from the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon's marketing and sales department told CNN, explaining that the bridge was the main draw of the canyon.






He added that the capacity of the glass bridge was limited to 8,000 visitors per day, but total demand was ten times as much.
The famous bridge also brought renewed interest to other scenic spots in the area.


When asked if the bridge was cracked or broken, the spokesperson said "there was no problem." He also confirmed there have been no accidents.

The six-meter-wide bridge stretches 430 meters over a 300-meter-deep valley between two cliffs in the stunning Zhangjiajie Park, said to have inspired the scenery for the sci-fi movie "Avatar."

Maybe the glass cracked again and they are embarrassed to come out and say that. The glass cracked sometime last year and they had to close the bridge.
You go fear made in China.
