“No better way to see Toronto - just do it!”

Edge Walk at the CN Tower
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“No better way to see Toronto - just do it!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

First, the $ is worth every penny for a once in a lifetime radical 20 minute walk with pix and a DVD! I'm not a huge fan of unrestrained heights, but I can say combined with the way they prep you, the guide and the feeling of security you have in your harness and with others beside you, it was much easier than I thought.

There is no feeling in the world of being in the total open air outside a building - the feeling of the open air and seeing for hundreds of miles in every direction is indescribable. If you are thinking about it, but unsure - just do it! Don't let fear be the thing that stops you from one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever have!

No one has ever died or even slipped before and even if you did, the rope can hold well over a large elephant - you're not going anywhere, so have fun!

“Must do...scary but very exciting”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

It was thrilling and very scary, you cna tailor what you do when you're up there, had a great time, and nic eto have the photos and video. Must do for thrill seekers. Obviously expensive, but includes 50 $ coupon to go up the tower again (better if they didn't have that option)

“Must do!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

So the whole experience is 175 plus tax but for a once in a life time experience, definitely worth it. The fee includes your walk, gear etc. and at the end you also get a video of the experience( your actual walk) and two pictures. It is a scary but fantastic experience. The walk is about 25 minutes and the rest is prep time. It is a totally safe to do they they explain all the safety features in case you doubt it. We had fantastic sunny weather which make the whole experience so much better. You can book on line or at the cn tower although we were told they get pretty booked up so i would do it online. Do it, you won't regret it! Also, at the end of the experience you get a voucher to come back to the top deck of the cn tower within the next 3 days. Thats usually worth 20 bucks.

“Superb. Do it.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Well, I think I can safely say that nothing else will ever be scary ever again. The experience is kinda pricey, but in my opinion well worth it. If you want to experience Toronto from (literally) a whole new angle, this has to be the way to do it. Briefing and setup are all top notch, and the safety gear is clearly well designed and takes anyone up to 140kg. The guide was brilliant - infectious enthusiasm and did a great job keeping everyone calm.

Once you're up there, the sensation is amazing. No guard rails, and on the sunny day we had, the most amazing views across Toronto and southern Ontario. You're asked to do things that go against human instinct - putting your faith in the equipment and guide is a big thing to do, but exhilarating when you do!

The price includes 2 printed photos (individual and group), plus a DVD of you looking like a scared fool, and you can get all the pictures they take on a USB stick for aorund $25, plus entry to the 'standard' bits of the CN Tower valid for more than just the day you do Edge Walk.

A must-do if you're in town - ignore the credit card screaming and get up there.

“Once in a lifetime”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Completely safe and 150% amazing. Well worth the money. It is chilly up there whether or not its nice out. I went in August and it was snowing while i was up. You also can purchase a USB for only $16 at the end with all the pictures and a video of while you were up there.
