Rattlesnake Bridge


Tucson, Arizona

This 280-foot-long Diamondback rattlesnake, designed by artist Simon Donovan, gets pedestrians and cyclists across busy Broadway Boulevard in downtown Tucson. If you dare, enter the snake's gaping mouth between the giant fangs (the eyes light up at night). You cross the street through the belly of the beast. As you exit at the tail, the rattle looms above you. Just as you think you've escaped, a motion-sensor sets off a loud rattling sound!
