The CN Tower in Toronto is most famous for the glass floor with views 342 meters (1,122 ft) above the ground. The glass floors are load tested every year to make sure they are strong enough. It is designed to withstand the weight of 35 moose and of course the weight of many people having fun. It was the first Glass Floor in the world to open in June of 1994. The Outdoor SkyTerrace is located on the same level as the glass floor. Take in the views of Toronto while enjoying the breeze at 342 meters (1,122 feet) above the ground.
One flight above the Outdoor SkyTerrace and the Glass Floor is the Lookout Level where you can enjoy the panoramic views of Toronto in the comfort of the indoors. There are floor to ceiling window walls that are constantly cleaned to ensure a clear view.
It takes only 58 seconds in one of six glass-fronted elevators to the get to the LookOut Level, but there are often long lines to get to the elevators. We had to wait two and a half hours on line when we visited in the summer. The good part was that they had an entertainer doing a magic show and some juggling. It helped time pass.
For an additional charge, visitors can go to the core of the tower, the Skypod level which is 447 meters (1,465 feet), high. It is 33 stories higher than the Skyterrace. The SkyPod is one of the highest observation platforms in the world. Visibility from the Skypod on a clear view is up to 160 km (100 miles) with views of Niagara Falls and New York State.
Recently the CN Tower added a unique and thrilling attraction, the Edgewalk. It is a full circle hands free, 5 foot wide ledge which encircles the Tower’s main pod. Visitors can walk while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system in groups of six. The Edgewalk is designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind. Tickets for the Edgewalk are not cheap, they cost $225 CAD (plus tax) and include a keepsake video, printed photos and certificate of achievement and of course everlasting memories.
