I think I would definitely prefer the cable car ride to the 'Walk of faith' in Blackpool Tower, a glass floor where you can see down for 320 feet.
Omg this is turning into a horror thread

Don't know if I'd have a problem with glass floors; CN Tower and the one in Melbourne were fine.... Do have a slight wobble on those rickety see though metal steps the Alpens seem to love attaching to the side of a high mountain.

Re: Not for the faint hearted?

Am i allowed to say that my Claim To Fame was being on the last ever ride down on the old Gondola?
Along with another EF member and all offspring.

I'm glad the new one is open now- that day, at the top of that hill, was one of my happiest last year

Its an easy walk- even for a 3 year old.
