I suppose this is somewhat interesting, but I found that once I was at the top, it didn't seem all that high. This is certainly not worth the $32 cost of admission. You line up for an hour, take a short elevator trip to the top, look around for about five minutes, then go back down. Even the skywalk glass was a much smaller place than it seems in the pictures. There are much better things to do in Toronto.

The cost is quite prohibitive, even though the views are magnificent. They try to combine a few things and expect to pay $50 to get to the top :)

Exciting place in Toronto. Very expensive, but that's the business with tourists. Interesting view around the city.
Different lighteffects on the tower or to illuminate it. It's not so nice with this illumination to look around.
Alltogether we enjoyed our visit because of the amazing view.

I am not sure if I need to every go back but to stand on the glass floor and look down on the blue jays stadium was very cool. This is one of those once in a lifetime must see.

There is not a lot of places in Toronto (or anywhere else maybe) that you can get that high to see the city. We went there first time during the day, it has an entrance fee but its not too expensive. Alot of kids, school classes and tourist, of course. Second time we booked a table with set menu for a dinner at sun set. It might seem expensive but then entrance is included and the resturant spins 360 degrees (very slow) while you have dinner. Worth a visit, qucik or for dinner!

Small insider tip: while walking around in toronto keep your eyes open for the CN tower, every now and then it pops up between buildnings and gives you great pictures.
