Toronto’s CN Tower will open an extreme attraction, EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, this summer, allowing the fearless to walk along an outside ledge almost 120 stories off the ground.
The first of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk is the world’s highest full-circle hands-free walk on a 5-ft. wide ledge encircling the top of the tower’s main pod, 1,168 ft. – 116 stories – above the ground. It would be an ideal team-building activity.
Thrillseekers will walk “hands-free,” in groups of six to eight, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system.
Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage visitors to push their personal limits. Everyone who meets the stipulated height and weight requirements will be eligible.
The entire experience will run 1.5 hours, with the walk itself lasting 20 to 30 minutes.
Advanced ticket sales begin by phone in June.
