The most widely recognized landmark in Toronto, the CN Tower soars high above the surrounding buildings of Toronto's skyline. A marvel of modern engineering and architecture, it is considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

So just how tall is the CN Tower? At 1818 feet the CN Tower was the tallest freestanding structure in the world when it was first completed back in 1975 until 2007 when the Burj Khalifa Skyscraper in Dubai surpassed it.

From the 1136 foot LookOut you will enjoy a 360° unobstructed view of the city of Toronto and the beautiful lakeshore area below. One level down at 1122 feet you may feel your knees go wobbly if you brave a walk on the 256 square foot Glass Floor. At this level you will also experience the Outdoor Observation Area. For an additional charge you can take another elevator up to the 1465 foot level SkyPod, an even higher viewpoint of the city. For some fine dining with a spectacular 360° view you may want to try the revolving restaurant located above the LookOut at 1151 feet.

If you are really adventurous you may want to try the EdgeWalk, a thrilling attraction that must be booked ahead. See EdgeWalk at the CN Tower for more details.

At nighttime you can enjoy the spectacular lighting that accentuates the tower from bottom to top. The energy efficient LED lighting is normally red and white to celebrate Canada, but changes on some nights to commemorate or celebrate special occassions, holidays or events. There is also a brief light show at the top of the tower for a few minutes at the top of each hour. Of course, the lighting can be enjoyed from any vantage point in the city that you can see the tower from.

CN Tower Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating One of the tourist highlights in Toronto. The tower gives a very nice overview of the city with many interesting high-rise buildings and the Lake Ontario. The glass floor on the lower deck is amazing and only for those without fears of height. It was disappointing that only photos through windows are possible and the price of 50 CAD is too high for what you get (for the lift to the highest level + 100 meters you pay another 10 CAD, still fotos through glass windows).

5 Star Rating It was a beautiful experience When we reached the top of the tower, we looked through the windows, and our eyes were dazzled. We then knew the greatness of the Great Creator The entire Tower was beautiful outside and inside Other than this it's a pretty expensive cost to get up there like I know we can be there as much as we can... but nobody will stay up there more than 3 hours and if someone wants to have a dinner in the tower it's going to be $75 each person like how extravagant is that what's more shocking is the washroom are really simple... the tower is making hundreds of thousands a month and the washrooms are really simple and some of them are dirty

3 Star Rating Extremely packed. The line was out the door and we didn’t get a chance to go up because we didn’t have enough time. I will be going back but a lot of people said it wasn’t really worth it but I still want to check out the restaurant at the top. It’s a good place to take pictures around the area if you’re not able to make it to the top. Just know this is one of the main spots everyone comes to local and tourist.

5 Star Rating Good attraction to visit. Very high building. You have the option of 2 levels. The first level is a bit lower and you can sit a grab a bite. The second level is the highest point and costs an extra. You can feel the tower move with the wind. Sometimes there is a long waiting time to enter.

4 Star Rating It's definitely better in the daytime than the night. If you only have the option of night, it is still worth the admission. The sky box is worth the 10 dollar ticket for the views. Pictures are better from the? main platform. Winds calm when I was there. I don't think I would go up the sky box if the wind are high. Check the ticket options on the web first, but you can get walk up tickets. You need to go through the security check first.
