15. The Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado, USA
One of the scariest bridges known to man, the Royal Gorge Bridge located in Colorado boasts a 955 feet height level and is the United States’ highest suspension bridge to date.
It is located within the 360 acre Royal George Bridge & Park, and is a tourist attraction all by itself! Cable cars are available for the brave souls who will dare to cross the bridge, with gorgeous panoramic views all around and the Arkansas River below at such a great height. Built in 1929, it was not until the 1950s that stabilizing wind cables were added to the bridge, so imagine how frightening it must have been to cross the bridge back then!
