Step Into The Void | French Alps

A new attraction for thrillseekers has just opened in the French Alps. Called "Step Into the Void”, this is the tallest attraction in Europe, it is located on the peak of Aiguille du Midi(Europes highest mountain peak). The death-defying attraction consists of a glass box suspended over the yawning void, 3,395 feet above the ground. It takes visitors almost 20 minutes to get to by cable car, but if you´re brave enough to enter the cube, you´ll be rewarded with one of the most breathtaking 360° views in all of the world - of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps. via
