The Canadian National Tower (CN Tower) is celebrating its 35th Anniversary and has recently announced Toronto’s newest attraction. The CN Tower EdgeWalk will allow visitors to walk around the Tower’s main pod; which is 116 ft above ground. In the summer of 2011, they will be charging $175 per person to experience this thrilling adventure. Visitors will be strapped to a harness attached to an overhead safety rail and will be able to walk hands-free around one of the “worlds highest full circle on a 5 ft wide ledge encircling the top of the CN Tower’s main pod.”
The website describes the experience to last at least 1.5 hours with 20 to 30 minutes actually spent walking around the edge of the tower. It’s a little pricey if you ask me. But being able to experience something like this is a once-in-a-lifetime type of thing.
I’ve never gone bungee jumping or skydiving. But both are on my bucket list. So, why not this?
D and I have already planned to go bungee jumping at Paramount Canada’s Wonderland this summer. It’s called the Xtreme Skyflyer and takes visitors 170 ft into the air and drops them; or as they describe it: “takes riders through a breathtaking pendulum swing, soaring a mere six feet above the ground!” The Xtreme Skyflyer is cheaper than the CN Tower EdgeWalk and costs about $15 per person for 3 people or $45 for a single person (I think that price is still relevant).
I’m not entirely sure when we’ll get to the EdgeWalk but sometime this summer for sure! I was recently at the CN Tower and will post pictures of our in-door experience both here and on Tamana’s View soon.
