Visitor Tips and News About Landmark Bridge - Glass Bottom
Even though you can't see through it all that well, the bridge is still worth the trip![David, 07/20/2013]
Bridge only had a small part that was glass that you couldn't really see through. But on the other side of the bridge there is an Asian garden and house thing that kinda rocks! Worth the stop![Jessamalyn, 11/05/2012]
The bridge is a neat piece of architecture, but don't go for the glass bottom. The glass is not transparent, and there is safety rebarb underneath it in a criss-cross pattern, making it nearly impossible to actually see though to the river. Go for the shape of the bridge, and for the view, but not for the glass bottom.[Tanya, 07/07/2012]
