Insane new experience for extreme tourists

Pay €127 and walk above a 350-metre drop overlooking Lake Ontario

Extreme tourism just got a whole new meaning. An attraction called EdgeWalk, aimed specifically at thrill seekers who enjoy a genuine adrenaline rush, has been unveiled in the Canadian city of Toronto. Visitors in groups of six to eight can walk around the summit of the National Tower (CN Tower), 356 metres above the ground, hands free, attached only by a cable. Charged a fee of $175 (€127), they can move slowly along a ledge less than two metres wide above the sheer drop. There is no guard rail.
During the 90-minute experience, guides encourage the visitors to lean over the edge of the tower to enjoy spectacular views of the city and Lake Ontario. Tickets are on sale from June 1 and takers have to meet requirements for height and weight.
“We think it’s fitting that Toronto’s newest attraction in 18 years should be at the city’s most defining landmark,” said Mark Laroche, president and CEO of Canada Lands Company, the owner and operator of the CN Tower. “EdgeWalk is both thrilling and unique and will push visitors to their limits – literally and figuratively. This will be among Toronto’s, if not the world’s, greatest attractions.”
