The bridge spans the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon and is made of 99 glass panels suspended over 980 feet above ground level.

Overwhelming demands to visit the record-breaking bridge have forced officials to shut it down. Just 13 days after it became open to the public, the bridge had to be shut down.

The bridge has a capacity of 8,000 visitors daily and demands to visit surged to ten times that number.

Before the bridge can be reopened to visitors, an official evaluation will take place.
