World's longest pedestrian suspension bridge opens—and you can jump off it

The longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world has opened in Russia, with a 1,800-foot span. It offers breathtaking views of the Sochi landscape but it isn't really designed for your daily commute—it is part of a skypark and you can bungee jump off it for a 650-foot drop, as shown in this video.

Eight 52mm cables hold the bridge and the bungee platform in place and can take over 300 tonnes per cable.
