It's not going to be anything like the one in AZ, more like a 5 ft platform that juts out, possibly on an angle to try to keep it as flush as possible to the side. Indoors of course. That's what I've heard at least.

Yeah -- I'll pass.

I did enjoy the arbitrary cut of the woman exclaiming "there's so much to do in Chicago!" around the 10 second mark, though.

this makes no sense. A glass bottom.....INSIDE. Even if it's on a slope, are people just suppose to pretend?

Ever see the one that is in the CN Tower in Toronto? It is indoors and plenty freaky.

Yeah, I'm envisioning a CN Tower like experience. Just a view straight down to the ground which is a little nerve-wracking.
