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. There is also a theatre currently featuring a 15 minute film called The Red Rocket which takes you on an immersive journey showcasing the electric streetcars that have provided transportation in the city since 1890. 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 new 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.

Had a fantastic time the last time I went, planning on taking some family when the weather warms up. The rates were a little high, but that's to be expected of a tourist location. The views are amazing from up top, and their massive glass floor offers a stunning view of the world below as well. Staff had been great, I remember we were getting our picture taken and one staff member in particular was telling us some of the most wonderful jokes I've heard in a long time. His twin worked there as well apparently! It was fantastic.

This was the high light of my trip to Canada. The views across the city and Lake Ontario are stunning. The trip up in the glass elevator fascinating as the view changes continuously. We had dinner in the restaurant and were impressed by the high standard of service and meals provide. Well worth the money!

Lots of fun even for people like id's that are fairly local to Toronto. Hadn't been up the tower in many years, forgot how much fun it is. The glass floor (small portion) of the elevator is almost more fun than the large glass floor up top. The Sky Pod level is worth the extra fee, its quite a bit higher! Would have given 5 stars but the main observation levels were under renovation.

What can I say other than this is a great place to see the city at an bird's eye view. The 360 restaurant is amazing and the gift shop is very reasonable. The other restaurant up above is great for breakfast and lunch. Also they do a nice job at keeping the tower relevant by always updating and adding attractions, making each visit a new adventure. It's a bit pricey to go up to the different levels and to do the sky walk but it's worth the money. Word of advise, go on a sunny day, otherwise you will only see clouds and you won't be able to appreciate the scenery.

For a winter day my visit was perfect. No clouds and the city was in my feet. There is some construction going on on the first level. Going up was complimentary but the waiting time was 90 min... If you enjoy glass floors, this is the perfect place for you. Also, you can go out, but is very windy and wet - winter and summer. Security measures are at the same level as in the airport. Be prepared.
