The bridge was completed in December and cost around US$3.4m to construct.
The committee says the bridge has set 10 world records spanning its design and construction.
As the city is gearing up for its opening, one crucial question has been doing rounds on everyone’s minds.
Officials have staged high-profile events to try and reassure the public of the bridge’s safety.
They have sent sledgehammers and even drove a car, filled with passengers, across the bridge earlier this year.
Park officials have said a maximum of 8,000 visitors will be allowed on the bridge each day.
