How Long Until The Base Jumpers Rush This Place?

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

LAist doesn't usually care what's happening in our eastern neighbor Arizona, but we've got to admit we're curious about the new Grand Canyon West observation platform opening 375 miles away on March 28.

Those wacky Hualapai Nation folks have gone and constructed a glass "sky platform" that will allow visitors to stare a mile straight down into the heart of the Grand Canyon. This seems like the perfect attraction for LA's adrenaline junkie community, and we can't help but wonder when the first local base jumper will be arrested for leaping from this thing? Hope the Hualapai don't skimp on security.
