Erected at a height of 400 meters (1,312 feet) above the canyon floor, the structure will provide visitors with a proper adrenaline boost looking through the bridge floor and, as if that wasn’t not thrilling enough, it will also feature bungee jumping. This is expected to break the height record for bungee jumps and beat the current highest commercial bungee of 233 meters (764 feet) on the Macau Tower.
