Shanghai has a new way to bring out the adrenaline junkie within you. Shanghai’s Jin Mao Tower, designed by a New York architecture firm and China’s third tallest building, has opened a glass-bottomed skywalk right outside the 88th floor. It is reported to be the highest skywalk in the world without a hand rail.

Nice place to go for a first date, huh?

The only thing keeping you from falling as you walk along this fenceless transparent walkway 340 meters above the ground is a security rope that is securely attached from you to the building.

Because of the nerve-wracking situation, you have to sign a waiver declaring you can handle the vertigo-inducing height without having a panic attack.

This attraction allows a maximum of 15 people, including two employees, on the 60-meter-long and 1.2-meter wide platform each time. The cost for 30 minutes is $58, according to Tech Insider. No personal belongings are allowed. Not even a phone to take a selfie.

Needless to say, once you get past the staggering realization that only a rope and a glass base is keeping you alive, you discover in front of you an amazing view of the city of Shanghai.

Once you have enjoyed and gasped over the mesmerizing view, you’ll be doing weird stunts in no time, having your picture taken and laughing about your bravery with the other adrenaline junkies next to you.

If this is the kind of thing you’re into (I know I am) and you’re around the area, gather a couple of friends, and go create a happy, new memory.
