 Those are long escalators connecting the mid-air floating obsevatory with top enterance floor.  To tell the truth, I could hardly look down while on the escalator because I really fear height.   But I'm sure you can enjoy the thrilling views from the height.

Many forerign tourists visit here not only in the daytime but also at sunset and night to see the breathtaking beauty of nightscape.
