OMG! I'm not big on heights.
When I had my GD at The Eiffel in June I hugged the wall at the top while she stuck her phone thru the grating to take photos.

I get wobbly knees just watching the video--even worse was the picture on ABC news last week.

Seems like a major waste of money. I read about this a couple days ago and it's part of a 30 million euro overhaul of the tower, but the article didn't say how much the floor cost. I don't imagine there are that many tourists who will make their decision whether to spend the money to go up in the tower based on whether there's a glass floor. I suppose maybe some Parisians might go up to check it out once.
