EdgeWalk: The New Attraction At Toronto’s CN Tower Designed To THRILL!
Last week, CN Tower made an exciting announcement. In what will be the most thrilling attraction Toronto has ever seen, EdgeWalk, the first of its kind in North America, will open August 1, 2011. As the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft wide ledge encircling the top of the CN Tower’s main pod, 356m, (1168 ft , 116 stories) above the ground, this thrilling experience will offer an adrenalin-fueled rush like none other.
“We think it’s fitting that Toronto’s newest attraction in 18 years should be at the city’s most defining landmark,” said Mark Laroche, President and CEO, Canada Lands Company, Owner and Operator of the CN Tower. “EdgeWalk is both thrilling and unique and will push visitors to their limits – literally and figuratively. This will be among Toronto’s, if not the world’s, greatest attractions.”
“During our 35th anniversary year we are excited to introduce visitors to the most exciting attraction in our history,” said Jack Robinson, COO, CN Tower. “We’re extremely proud of the records the CN Tower has held throughout the years, including our strong safety record. Our facilities and engineering team supervised the EdgeWalk project design and build to ensure that it is both exciting and safe.”
Groups of six to eight people will be able to walk “hands-free” along the edge of the tower while attached to an overhead safety rail via trolley and harness system. If you’ve ever visited CN Tower, you’ll understand just how HIGH and how extreme this experience is!
