Summer is almost here and we would like to highlight some of Toronto’s best attractions for visitors and residents alike. If you’ve never been up the CN Tower or have been up many years ago, now is your chance to see it. We’re giving away four General Admission tickets (giveaway is now closed).
The CN Tower has been named the Official Attraction of the Pan /Parapan Games and will use its 1,330 LED lights to display the Games’ official colours.
The first level is the LookOut level which takes 58 seconds to access. At a height of 1,136 feet, the LookOut level offers fabulous views and access to Horizons Restaurant. You’ll also have an opportunity to take a souvenir photo.
The CN Tower’s Glass Floor has been specifically designed for guests to walk, crawl, sit or jump on it. You’ll be able to look straight down for 1,122 feet. The floor is 256 square feet of solid glass that is five times stronger than the required weight bearing standard for commercial floors. The floor can withstand the weight of 35 moose. (I would have liked to have seen that test.) Load tests are performed annually on each panel to ensure safety. On the same level is the Outdoor SkyTerrace where you can feel the Toronto breeze. Also on this level, be sure to check out the Outdoor SkyTerrace. Feel the breeze at 342m (1,122 ft) above the ground.
If you have nerves of steel, you might want to consider walking around the exterior main pod of the CN Tower on EdgeWalk, the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft wide ledge. At 1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground, participants walk in groups of six while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained guides will encourage participants to partake of the full EdgeWalk experience by allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and spectacular views of Lake Ontario beneath them.
Lacy Boland and John Kirk from Barrie, Ontario took adventure wedding planning to a new level when they were the first couple to be married on EdgeWalk on September 19, 2013.
EdgeWalk, which was designed with the highest safety standards, takes 1.5 hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes. Tickets cost $195 and include printed photos, a certificate of achievement and a keepsake video. Participants also receive a Tower Experience Ticket which includes access to LookOut, Glass Floor, SkyPod, and CN Tower attractions.
The SkyPod is one of the highest observation platforms in the world at 1,465 feet above Toronto. A separate elevator will take you to SkyPod, which is an additional 33 floors higher than the LookOut. If the weather is sunny, you may be able to see Niagara Falls and New York State. A separate ticket ($12) is required for access to SkyPod in addition to the General Admission Tower experience ticket.
The CN Tower Lookout, Glass Floor and SkyPod is open 364 days a year (excluding Christmas Day) from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. General Admission tickets are Adult (13-64) $32 ($29 if purchased online) and Senior (65+) and Child (4-12) $24 ($22 if purchased online). A Family Pass is $99 for 4 tickets with a maximum of 2 people between the ages of 13-64.
