Many folks would pay not to be put out onto a skinny ledge 116 stories above ground, but that’s the main attraction at Toronto’s “EdgeWalk.”
A perfect gift for your thrill-seeking friend or that one ex who’s afraid of heights, EdgeWalk is a commercial enterprise at the CN Tower that allows tourists to feel like they’re about to fall off a skyscraper. The way it works is you buy a $175 ticket that gets you entry to a catwalk fixed high up on the 1,815-foot tower
Once out in the rarefied atmosphere, you don a “special Walk suit” with a heavy-duty harness. Then, to the delight of everyone watching, a guide gently pushes your body so while your feet are still on the platform, the rest of you is hanging in thin air above Toronto. If you so wish (how much do you trust that harness?), you can release your deathgrip on the safety straps and scream like a little girl.
