Imagine going down a 500-metre slide being able to see everything that's beneath you. 

A massive see-through glass slide, located in the Dayudu Yellow River Scenic Area in southern Shanxi province in China, will soon open to the public. 

This new attraction will feature a 500-metre long ride that will supposedly get visitors down a distance of 100 metres in no time. 

According to Shanghaiist, the slide started trial operations last Friday (May 19), meaning that it should be open to the general public soon.

This adds to China's growing list of architectural marvels made of glass.

First, there was the world's longest glass bridge that spans across a canyon between two mountain cliffs in Zhangjiajie park.

Then, there was the glass bridge in Qinglianggu valley at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level.

Both sites are known for their breathtaking sights.

What is with China and its obsession with glass?
