It is an experience, the world’s highest hands free external walk on a building. Edge Walk is CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its history.
It is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 1.5 m (5 ft) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod, 356m/1,168ft (116 storeys) above the ground. The Edge Walk Experience includes a keepsake video, printed photos, certificate of achievement and a ticket to re-enter the CN Tower.
The first pictures were taken by my husband through the glass, because only the people that go up can be in that room. You get a breath test. Not a drop of alcohol can be in you. And the metal detector comes out
Hair has to be tied up and shoes can’t fall off. Glasses have to be tied with a string. Big earrings have to come out. Then you get instructions, and suit and harness goes on. And up we go.
We walk in groups of six, (my brother and I were lucky as there was only us that wanted to go up at that time) while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained Edge Walk guides encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them.
The guide tells you all about Toronto. You don’t want to do what he says, no problem you do not have to do it.
It is the most amazing way to see Toronto!!
The pictures from the walk are taken by the guide, as we are not allowed camera’s out on the Edge Walk.
