A visitor to the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park must have been missing baseball season Monday.
The Gatlinburg SkyBridge was shut down when a guest "attempted a baseball-style slide across the glass" and a metal object on the guest's clothing chipped the glass, a release said.
The slide caused "noticeable cracks" in a protective layer of one of the three glass panels on the SkyBridge, reports the Knoxville News Sentinel, which is a part of the USA TODAY Network. The incident occurred at approximately 8:30 p.m. The attraction closed for repairs, which are expected to be completed early Tuesday with normal operations resuming.
"No injuries occurred and guests were not in any danger," the release said.
The release rules posted at the SkyBridge state "no running, jumping or bouncing."
The SkyBridge is nearly 700-feet-long, making it the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America. It opened May 17, 2019.
The structure features three 5-by-5 panels at its center. The glass has three layers with the upper layer serving to protect the other layers.
