The walls are windows, so it looks like you could step right of the edge of the floor and fall to your death. I turned around a rode the elevator back down to ground level.
I hear you. We went up the Eiffel Tower two years ago because it's the Eiffel Tower and that's what you do. Last year we went again and I was NOT going to go back up there. In even a gentle breeze you can feel that sucker moving.
But my little girl begged and everyone in our group gave me a hard time so I went.
Dumb move again. I got vertigo up there and had to put my back against the inner wall up top and I felt all funky and weird.
I just don't see the fascination with going up on big buildings like that. Yeah the view is nice but if you slip, you die.
