The scenery is pretty but it looks like it is hard to see through the glass floor of the water slide because of the rippling water in the trough. I wonder if you have a better floorless feeling when you are actually on the ride but most of the photos don't appear that the glass is see-thru.

This slide looks pretty cool--and genuinely frightening.

Wouldn't ride this myself and wouldn't put any of my family that I like on this ride.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

This is essentially a glass bottomed water slide through the gorgeous mountain scenery. Stretching almost 1.3km down the mountain side with over a 100m in total height difference it certainly looks like great fun.

Now why is it glass bottomed? no idea.... Because China?

There's also a very short video of one of the rafts as it nears the bottom of the run. None one of the more scenic sections admittedly but I imagine one of the few easy places to get a photo.
