Sears Tower



Jen: Could you do this?! I think it would be a really cool experience, but I was clenching my fists so tight while watching the video that I actually hurt my thumb! I'm somewhat afraid of heights, but not enough to keep me from something like this. I'm more afraid of being high up without enclosures- bungee jumping, bridges, etc.

Crystal: I can't see the video...it's just a blank box :( But from the sound of your post, I'm doubting I would do it...I don't do anything scary and definitely not things that involve heights.......what is it???

Jen: Hmm, I guess the video was removed. Basically, they created an enclosed glass box at the top of the Sears Tower, much like a balcony. You can step inside and feel like you're floating x amount of stories above ground!

At first I thought it was just a ledge without enclosure... As long as I cant feel the wind whipping by, I think I'd be alright... I stood on a similar glass platform at the top of the C&N Tower in Toronto.
And I'm horribly frightened of heights... NO bungee, though!

It's like roller coasters for me-
a love / hate thing.

Sears Tower is just a train ride away....maybe I'll check it out.

*my hands are sweaty just thinking about it*

I am very afraid of heights... hate to fly, climb, or look down... Could not go there! This video freaked me out!

Love,
Kelly

I can't watch it becuase I'm not in the USA but I can imagine! I hate heights but jumped out an airplane twice. I bungee jumped but cried trying to get down from the Eiffel Tower. Go figure!
