EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, Toronto’s most extreme attraction

EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, Toronto’s most extreme attraction opens to the public for an exciting second season at 12:00 noon on May 1. Adventure lovers will once again walk on the edge of one of the world’s greatest man-made wonders, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground. Demand for reservations has been high since bookings began earlier this year. New for 2012, the experience can be booked online at www.edgewalkcntower.ca.

“During its first season, EdgeWalk lived up to and exceeded all expectations, achieving an enthusiastic local and international response,” said Mark Laroche, President and CEO, Canada Lands Company, Owner and Operator of the CN Tower. “Toronto’s newest and most thrilling attraction has quickly earned its place among the world’s greatest attractions.”


The first of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk is the world’s highest external walk on a building, a full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the CN Tower’s main pod. Thrill seekers walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk 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.


“We are inspired by the continued enthusiasm for EdgeWalk throughout our first season and leading up to our second,” said Jack Robinson, Chief Operating Officer of the CN Tower. “Often referred to as the ‘thrill of a lifetime’ and a ‘bucket list’ item, many embraced this unique experience for marriage proposals, milestone celebrations and more. We look forward to more great stories and unique feats during Season 2!”


EdgeWalk first opened to the public on August 1, 2011. Walkers as young as 13 and as young at heart as 90 experienced EdgeWalk. On November 8, 2011 EdgeWalk at the CN Tower was presented with the Guinness World Record for the “Highest External Walk on a Building”.


Designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind, EdgeWalk runs 1.5 hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes. Tickets cost $175 CAD and include a keepsake video, photos and certificate of achievements. Participants also receive a Total Tower Experience Ticket. EdgeWalk operates seasonally from May to October in all weather except for electrical storms and high winds.
