We came here one evening to view the sights of the city, you can see for miles and miles. You can get an amazing view of you go up to the sky pod, we watched the sun setting it was such a great sight. The sky pod is very small and van be cramped when there are a few people in it, there is also only one lift that takes you up and down to it.

The main viewing deck shows you full views of the city, but was under construction when we went , so their was limited space and couldn't walk all the way round to see the full views.

The lifts up from the ground have see through floors and doors.

There is also a glass floor level so you can view the sites below you.

we went up to the tower. not overly expensive, but definitely a tourist trap. We skipped the pictures. not sure why people wait to take them, but a choice. Be sure to walk over the glass floor. very fun.

First off I'm afraid of heights but my 14-year old daughter talked me into going up the tower. I'm glad she did. The ride up in the elevator was smooth and fast. You can choose to look out or not on the way up and down. The view from above was tremendous and solid...Even on a windy day I did not feel any sway. You can choose to walk to the windows or stay near the center of the tower. Tower was under construction at the top but the view did not disappoint. Gift shop could have more employees working at the checkout but the CN Tower is a not-to-be missed Toronto site.

Our family of four (11yr, 8yr) visited after the Jay's game on Good Friday (last night). What a crazy cool experience. Not sure if they are currently renovating or not, but as soon as you exit the elevator after going up, it looks unwelcoming and like a construction zone. Other than that, it was a fun adventure that I never need to do again because I am scared of heights. The outdoor observation deck is quite nice and the glass floor is fun...if you have no fear! I would recommend you try this experience at least once as the views are unlike any other.
