Walk out onto the Skywalk, 4000 feet above the floor of the Grand Canyon.
Before the opening of the skywalk in 2007 the best view was standing on the edge and peering down. Since the glass floored walkway opened at Eagle Point, the 10 foot wide, horseshoe shaped bridge enables visitors to step 70 feet past the rim of the Grand Canyon and see sights that were not possible before. If you are nervous about stepping out onto a glass floored bridge with nothing else between you and the valley floor over a mile below, fear not, the Skywalk was built to withstand earthquakes and can bear the weight of seventy 747 passenger aircraft.
The Legacy Gold Package
Since it opened there has been some confusion over what tickets to buy when visiting the Skywalk. You cannot just buy a ticket to go on the Skywalk, you must buy a package ticket. The Legacy Gold Package costs $82.37 including taxes. If you buy a ticket from a tour operator in Las Vegas, ensure that your ticket includes entry onto the Skywalk. The Legacy Gold Package includes the entry fee to go onto the Hualapai Tribal Land, a ticket to walk onto the Skywalk and a meal at one of the three viewpoints at Grand Canyon West and a shuttle bus service that operates between these viewpoints.
Professionally taken photographs
Visitors to the Skywalk can purchase professionally taken photographs of their walk out on the Skywalk. The photographs are available to view in the gift shop a few minutes after your visit to the skywalk is over.
Personal Property on the Skywalk
Personal property including bags, cameras and mobile phones are not permitted to be taken out on the Skywalk. All such possessions must be stored in the free lockers that are available before you step out onto the Skywalk.
Viewpoints included in the package
Each package includes a stop at Eagle Point, the location of the Skywalk, Guano Point for some spectacular views and the Hualapai Ranch where you will find some western hospitality as well as some entertainment.
