Busy first day for Skywalk March 31, 2007

Posted by Ron Warnick in Attractions, Events.

Nearly 2,000 people visited the Grand Canyon Skywalk during its first day open to the public on Wednesday, according to a news release from Grand Canyon West.

At a minimum of $25 a pop, Skywalk grossed at least $50,000 on its first day. Not bad.

The release also gives some details about future plans at the Skywalk complex:

Upon completion, the visitor’s center will include a museum, movie “The Making of the Skywalk,” a VIP lounge and gift shop as well as private indoor and outdoor facilities for meetings, special events and weddings. Several restaurants and bars will be available, including The Skywalk Cafe, a high-end restaurant with outdoor patio and rooftop dining on the edge of the canyon. The second floor of the visitor’s center will provide access to The Skywalk glass walkway.

The sooner it completes these improvements, the better. Give the folks who spent $50 or more apiece more than just a spectacular view.
