The CN Tower’s EdgeWalk will open to the public Monday, but Toronto’s latest attraction is not for the faint of heart or light of wallet.
Thrill seekers can get the best view of the city from a 356 metre-high ledge – that’s 116 storeys above the ground.
It costs $175 to strap in for an open-air walk along the 1.5-metre platform that runs along the tower’s highest pod. The entire experience will run 1.5 hours, with the walk itself lasting between 20 to 30 minutes.
Up to eight people can make the hands-free trip at the same time, supported by a harness and pulley attached to an overhead rail.
“We think it’s fitting that Toronto’s newest attraction in 18 years should be at the city’s most defining landmark,” said Mark Laroche, president and CEO of Canada Lands Company, in a statement earlier this year. Canada Lands owns and operates the CN Tower.
“EdgeWalk is both thrilling and unique and will push visitors to their limits – literally and figuratively. This will be among Toronto’s, if not the world’s, greatest attractions,” Laroche added.
