How to do a ledge drop off effect?

I was at a haunt last year and saw an this effect and have been trying to figure it out since. I know it worked off of a similar set-up to the bottomless pit, there was a small shack on the path that you had to enter, immediately upon entering you are put onto a 'ledge' that continually shrinks...on the other side of the ledge it appears to drop off to an endless pit, however you realize that when you step down that it actually is a surface (mirror I believe) that you could walk on and that the bottomless pit was just an illusion. I didn't really get a good look at the works behind it at the time, but I made a diagram of how I think it may work (although i could be totally wrong). Any help would be great, I'm thinking of doing a smaller version of this for our haunt here.

I think you are on the right track. The only thing I can think of right off the bat is that you cant walk on a mirror so a thick iece of plexiglass is going to be needed. You are probobly talking 3/4" to 1" thick minimum. I think lighting will also play a big part in your setup.
