Phew. I know people will have their feet on solid ground but I think I would prefer to hover over Grand Canyon in an aircraft of some description. I don't suffer from vertigo but when looking down from a smallish platform, at those heights, I do get a strange feeling, like I'm flying and nothing supports me beneath my feet, but air. No, I don't think I would be about to pay $25 for that experience. I think I would rather pay for the aerial view by plane or helicopter. Brightest Blessings.
