The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge, known by locals as the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, crosses Tampa Bay with a total length of 21,877 feet!
The original bridge was destroyed in 1980 after a massive ship ran into a pier and killed 35 people. This newer bridge was built in 1987. Sadly, more than 200 people have used the bridge to take their lives here.
The Bridge of Immortals, Huang Shang China
If you’re afraid of heights then this bridge is one you’ll want to avoid. Situated in Huangshan (also known as Yellow Mountain) in eastern China, the bridge is situated between two giant granite peaks that scream for dare devils to cross its path.
It has spectacular views of the mountains. We imagine that the way to the bridge is perhaps even scarier. The Yellow Mountain is an adventure thrillist’s dream destination for the experience of a lifetime.
Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan
Are you a fan of rollercoasters? Then you might enjoy this Japanese bridge. While it isn’t as steep as it looks with a gradient of 6.1 percent and a height of 144 feet, I still wouldn’t want to drive up or down that thing.
The bridge was built from 1997 to 2004. It is the largest rigid-frame bridge in Japan and the third largest in the world.
Quepos Bridge, Costa Rica
Also known as the “Bridge of Death,” or “Oh My God bridge” this bridge is one to be crossed at your own risk. The bridge was constructed by the Bananera Company from 1930-1940 for the train that moved bananas to the port of Quepos.
While it doesn’t look like it could even support the weight of a car, trucks actually cross it on a daily basis and somehow they survive. The bridge is extremely narrow and allows cars to travel only in one direction. The planks don’t run across the entire bridge and clank loudly under the weight of vehicles. We think it’s time for some renovation.
Puente de Ojuela, Mexico
Once used by the mining town below, the bridge today is for pedestrians only as it is far too much of a risk for a car to pass over it.
It was completed in 1898 and restored as a tourist attracted in 1991. Tourists flock here because of its reputation as being one of the most dangerous roads in the world.
