EdgeWalk at the CN Tower introduced a new level of adventure tourism to Toronto

This month, the opening of EdgeWalk at the CN Tower introduced a new level of adventure tourism to Toronto. Urban thrill seekers can now walk on the edge of a man-made wonder, 1,168 feet (116 stories) off the ground. "We're extremely excited this day is finally here," said Mark Laroche, President and CEO of Canada Lands Company, owner and operator of the CN Tower. "The public has shown that they are ready and eager to push their limits by taking part in Toronto's most exciting attraction in decades." The first of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk is the world's highest, full-circle, hands-free walk, which takes place on the five-foot-wide ledge encircling the top of the tower's main pod. Above the city, visitors will walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will 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. Designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind, the seasonal (May through October) EdgeWalk experience will run one and a half hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes. Tickets cost $175 CAD and include a keepsake video, photos, certificate of achievement and Total Tower Experience admission to the rest of CN Tower.
