EdgeWalk is the "World's Highest External Walk on a Building"...

EdgeWalk is the "World's Highest External Walk on a Building" (Guinness World Record), a full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower's main pod. Visitors 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. 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 include a keepsake video, photos and certificate of achievement. Participants also receive a CN Tower re-admission General Admission ticket + SkyPod (includes access to LookOut, Glass Floor/outdoor SkyTerrace, SkyPod Levels). EdgeWalk operates seasonally from spring to late fall, 7 days a week, and hours of operation fluctuate depending on daylight.

The edge walk is one of the scariest but also the best thing I've ever done. From start to finish the whole experience was brilliant from the training at the start to the walk itself. It is extremely safe and you checked at least 10 times by 3 different people so safety is at the highest level here. Our guide... More

That's the first thing they have you do when you get up there....and it's TERRIFYING. Every instinct in your body tells you not to do it and it was really hard to overcome the fear and trust the double cables keeping you safe. But once you do it, it's like breaking through a barrier and the rest just becomes an... More

It is a great experience but you should check the weather. You won't get a great view on overcast days. Also end to end, with the training you're looking at a few hours. I would highly recommend you also get a free voucher for a trip to the top that's valid for a week, I think.

I felt completely safe due to the stringent safety and security checks performed several times by different members of the Edgewalk team. I love heights and the adrenaline rush of stepping outside was awesome - I could have stayed out there all day!

The staff are extremely professional and know their stuff inside and out. The rush of walking outside onto the grating for the first time and looking out across the city is amazing. Full trust in the equipment and staff does not make leaning out into thin air any easier, but the exhilaration of challenging your fear is worth every penny.... More

It was so thrilling to harness up and hang out over the edge of the CNN Tower. It is a rush and frightening and thrilling all at the same time. This should definitely be on your list of places to go in Toronto. If you don't want the full experience you can go up the tower and see the amazing... More

I did the edge walk with my best friend and my 22 year old niece. We all had such an amazing time. It is a thrill of a lifetime. While I was somewhat apprehensive, the folks here made me and my companions feel that safety is key. We all thoroughly enjoyed the expertise and friendly staff....well worth every penny we... More

The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised.
