At 1,814 feet tall, Toronto’s CN Tower held the record of tallest building in the world for more than three decades, until it was surpassed by the Burj Khalifa a few years ago. It attracts more than 2 million visitors every year, many of whom climb to the observation deck and risk severe vertigo by peering down through a glass floor to the ground. But if you think that takes guts, you’re not ready for the CN Tower’s new challenge: walking on a ledge 1,168 feet above the ground and hanging out into empty space.
It’s called EdgeWalk, and for the price of $175, you can strap on a jump suit and a harness and see Toronto and Lake Ontario from a unique, thrilling perspective. Each half hour group walk will be led by a guide, there to keep everyone safe and make sure they enjoy Canada’s “newest, tallest extreme urban adventure.”
The expected conditions apply: parental permission required for those under 17 (minimum age 13), no pregnant women, no one with heart conditions, etc. But if you’re not ruled out, don’t miss it. Not as excited as I am? Check out the EdgeWalk album of fan photos, and see if you really can resist.
