About these ratings

One of the more controversial additions to the Grand Canyon's surroundings, the Grand Canyon Skywalk is a large, semi-circular bridge with a transparent glass floors, allowing tourists to walk out over the Canyon and view the floor from a truly unique vantage point. The Skywalk lies outside of the park on the grounds of the Hualapai Indian Tribe. Purists initially criticized the construction of the Skywalk, claiming it ruined the area's natural aesthetic. The attraction has since attracted thousands of visitors since its opening.

The Skywalk is a long drive from both the South Rim and the North Rim, inconveniencing many wishing to stay near the Grand Canyon Village. As one TripAdvisor traveler says, "Be forewarned that this is an all-day activity because it is a long drive from anywhere." Other travelers note that the Skywalk was both inconvenient and overpriced. Tickets are as high as $75 for access, and no cameras or video equipment is allowed. Instead, the Skywalk photographers offer photographs for about $20 each
