11 Most Vertigo-Inducing Tourist Destinations

Europe has just opened up their newest and tallest attraction in the Alps called ‘Step Into the Void.’ This attraction consists of a glass box set on the edge of a peak, which looks down about 3,280 feet below. If this doesn’t give you a little vertigo, I don’t know what will. In honor of the grand opening, we have pulled together the most vertigo-inducing tourist destinations around the world.

Check out where you can observe at great heights with only a bungee cord holding you on. See where to enjoy the sights from an observation deck infinity pool, and find out which observation deck is the tallest in the world.
