Owner description: The CN Tower is a National icon, engineering Wonder, a Toronto must-see attraction and award winning dining and entertainment destination. Rocket to the top aboard the Tower's glass fronted and glass floor paneled elevators which take you to the top in only 58 seconds. Take in spectacular views of up to 160km (100 miles) away from four observation areas on three levels, including the LookOut, world famous Glass Floor with outdoor SkyTerrace and the SkyPod, the highest of them all. Experience the thrill of EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, the World's Highest Outdoor Walk on a Building. Enjoy award-winning Canadian cuisine and breathtaking revolving views at 360 The Restaurant at the CN Tower, family friendly fare at Horizons Toronto celebrating the multicultural flavours of Toronto neighbourhoods, or grab and go fare from Le Café. Plus, visual displays, KidZone play area and 8,000 square feet of unique Canadian artisan and souvenir shopping in the Gift Shop. Don't miss the architectural illumination of the CN Tower each night from dusk with top of the hour light show.

“Some advice for those adverse to heights”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

I am not brave when it comes to things up high, but i heard too many good things about the Tower not to go. Turns out, the elevators going up to the first observation deck are on the outside and have floor to ceiling glass windows. If your like me and not too fond of heights, try not to be the last one on the elevator or you'll be the closest to the glass! But if you can bear it at all, it really is worth the trip... amazing views!

“high thrill”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

easy access can very busy at ticket level fast ride to restaurant. level but view can be restricted by surrounding buildings. suggest paying extra 12 dollars to get lift to top area, for unrestricted view of Toronto suggest visiting second cup coffee house at base level excellent service and cheaper pastry's than starbucks.

“Great views”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

Tip: book lunch or dinner at 360 restaurant and you save the cost of the entrance to the viewing platform! But the views from the top are great over the city and the lake.

Well overpriced for what it is and over very quickly. Not sure what the attraction is to this rip off.

“Just kill time.”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

For people who have nothing to do in Toronto, just pay a visit and spend some money to see views. Car parking is not difficult to find but expensive.
