For tourists who catch the adrenaline bug from completing the transparent walkway, there will also be the opportunity to try the world's highest bungee jump.

This record-breaking bungee will snatch the title from Macau Tower's 764ft-high attraction.

Last month a similarly scary walkway opened in south-west China in Chongqing, which extended 87.5ft from the edge of a cliff.

Visitors are suspended in the air with 2,350ft of valley below their feet, leaving them feel as though they are walking on air.
