OPT has the transparent glass step that will challenge one's phobia. I managed to conquer my phobia and enjoy some spectacular views during night. The views during day time and night time are completely different.

This was pretty awesome! make sure you go up to the glass floor that overlooks the city. We had fun until the huge crowds came in. Try to be there when they first open, the people all showed up about 1100.

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
