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.

Terrifyingly awesome!

Amazing views. David aka Mr sparkles, was incredibly knowledgeable of the city. Encouraging for anyone slightly afraid to lean over the edge. Great adventure. Totally worth it.

This is where the Adrenalin rush begins. It was well organized and the many safety inspections needs to be mentioned. But the actual fun is when we begin our walk 356 meters above the ground on a 1.5 meter ledge. The instructor then charms us into doing some exercises that makes for the most exhilarating experience. Our instructor Keegan was... More

Just do it if you get the chance. The views from the top of the tower are amazing. At various points you are offered the chance to lean over with just the cables holding you on both forward and backwards. There were both young and some not so young participants on our trip out (groups of up to 8) and... More

Totally safe, a bit expensive, but a once in a life time memory. Took 14 year old daughter who had always wanted to do it and she totally loved it. They couldn't be more safety conscious and the equipment was flawless --the only real risk is how your own mind is going to deal with it, this isn't for those... More

For my 60th birthday celebration I asked to do the Edge Walk in lieu of a party or big dinner. My husband, daughter and I loved it! It is very safe and forces you outside your comfort zone in the beginning. By the end of the tour it was more comfortable and fun!

I wanted to push my limits and conquer my fear of heights. Edge Walk completely took me out of my comfort zone. I'm uncertain I conquer my fear of heights but I certainly proved myself that even if I'm scared to death, I'm able to push boundaries and trust others. The tour is 10000% safe. It would have to be.... More

This is an amazing experience, but not for the faint of heart. Although a tad expensive, the Edge Walk is a must for all thrill seekers to add to their bucket list. Truly a once in a lifetime experience and the views are breathtaking and will never be forgotten. Worth booking when you are in Toronto when the weather is... More

Def should be on the list for any adrenaline junkies. Nothing beats walking around the outside and on top of the CN Tower. It was pretty pricey, I'm not sure how I saw $120 and up on here, but I paid over $200, $220 I think. Oh well, I can't take it with me right! Fun experience for sure

While I thought I would be absolutely terrified as I'm not keen on heights, the safety equipment is so substantial and the safety checks so thorough, that I felt very confident and safe. It truly is an incredible experience - very surreal standing outside and overlooking the city and the lake particularly given how nice the day was. Our "guide"... More

I did the edge walk as part of a summer party for work. I organized the trip. It was underwhelming to say the least. I suppose if you're from out of town and have never been to the CN tower it's a nice way to see it. Otherwise I would give it a miss. Also, I left behind my picture/DVD... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. 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. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
