Elevated, Accessible Walkway & Observation Deck

Follow the accessible, elevated walkway through the air and make observations above and below as you make your way to the Observation Deck and Treehouse. Note what you see and and make comparisons (How high am I? How windy is it?) and look above and below with periscopes along the way. Talk to people on the path below with talking tubes.
