Rules for the Grand Canyon Skywalk

The Grand Canyon Skywalk has now been open for a year, allowing tourists to walk 70 feet beyond the edge of the Grand Canyon, look through a glass-bottom observation deck and gaze down at the canyon floor 4,000 feet below. And then watch the person next to them get sick.

Or maybe it will be you feeling sick. That seems unlikely, however, because to be a reader of this blog you need to have a strong stomach. Anyway, if you're heading to Arizona, here's a reminder about the rules for using the Grand Canyon Skywalk:

1. No running, hitting, horseplay or other activities that you wouldn't do on your Skywalk at home.
2. No jumping up and down repeatedly to make the Skywalk vibrate.
3. No standing on the rails and yelling, "I'm king of the world!"
4. No asking other visitors, "Did you feel that?" as if the Skywalk is starting to fall.
5. No asking the Skywalk attendant if he or she knows where the Brady Bunch Grand Canyon adventure was filmed.
