10 Most Terrifying Places In The World To Look Down – Part 2

If you’re afraid of heights, remember that you are safe. But if you stood in one of those places… I can’t even begin to think what could happen. Check out our second part of the most terrifying places in the world to look down.

1. Emirates Spinnaker Tower – Portsmouth, England, UK

Spinnaker Tower with a height of 170 m above sea level is the tallest tower in the UK outside of London. There are three observation platforms at the top. The highest one, the crow’s nest, has only a wire mesh roof, so visitors can experience wind, rain or snow. The glass floor is the largest in Europe.

3. Skybridge of the Petronas Towers‎ – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The towers feature a double decker skybridge connecting the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors. The bridge is not attached to the main structure, but is instead designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent it from breaking, as the towers sway several feet in towards and away from each other during high winds.
