Visit the Grand Canyon - one of the Top 10 Wonders of the World


Grand Canyon Skywalk: A Mind-Blowing Experience

The Skywalk at Grand Canyon West, scheduled to open March 28, 2007, will be the first-ever glass walkway to suspend more than 4,000 feet above the canyon's floor and extend 70 feet from the canyon's rim. The Skywalk at Grand Canyon West was recently rolled out over the Canyon's edge in Northwestern Arizona. The glass walkway will offer visitors a unique and exhilarating perspective of the Grand Canyon.

Access to The Skywalk will run from dawn to dusk and will cost $25 per person in addition to the cost of a Grand Canyon West entrance package. 120 people will be allowed on the bridge at a time. Admittance is first come, first served for walk up visitors; however, reservations can be made.

Grand Canyon West is accessible by plane from Phoenix and the Grand Canyon's South Rim. Westwind Aviation offers flights out of Deer Valley airport in Phoenix. For details, please visit www.westwindaviation.com . Grand Canyon Airlines offers air service from the South Rim to Grand Canyon West. For further information, please visit www.grandcanyonairlines.com

Located at Grand Canyon West's Eagle Point, The Skywalk facility will also include a 6,000 square-foot visitor's center on three levels &endash; underground, first story and second story &endash; which will contain a museum, movie theater, VIP lounge, gift shop, and several restaurants and bars, including a high-end restaurant called The Skywalk Café that will offer outdoor patio and rooftop seating on the edge of the canyon.

Guests will enter and exit the walkway via temporary buildings while the adjacent visitor's center is being completed. Grand Canyon West plans to issue numbered shoe covers &endash; in order to avoid scratches and slipping - to each visitor that enters the open-air walkway.    

Grand Canyon West is located approximately 72 miles northwest of Kingman, Ariz. Attractions available at Grand Canyon West include The Indian Village with authentic dwellings, The Hualapai Market, and The Hualapai Ranch, a western town with horseback and wagon rides. Grand Canyon West is the only location throughout the entire Grand Canyon where visitors can access the river at the bottom of the canyon via helicopter tours.

In addition to boat tours on the river, Hummer tours are available along the rim of the canyon and through private areas that are otherwise inaccessible to the public. There are more than 30 tour and transportation companies that service Grand Canyon West from Phoenix, Sedona and Las Vegas by airplane, helicopter, coach, SUV, and Hummer.
