CN Tower, Toronto

4.2
Arguably Toronto's most recognizable attraction, CN Tower held the record for world's tallest building upon its completion in 1976. Still one of the world's highest towers, this spindly icon remains a landmark of the city skyline. Ride the glass elevator to the top, where on a clear day you can take in views of the city from 553 m (1,815 ft) in the air. If you choose to have a meal at the revolving restaurant, elevator access is free of charge. For an extra dose of adrenaline, daredevils can take a short walk around the edge of the tower's main pod, just above the restaurant. A visit to CN Tower represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Toronto trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Prepare for more than 1 hour of row if doing well. Well organized, clean, good attraction. The rather high price. The documentary while one makes a rank is short and bad.

  • The views from the top are priceless. Climb to the Skypod, the highest point in the Western hemisphere.

  • Options, 38, 53, and 225 dollars. Visit enjoyable. Popular site for tourists. I advise you to go late in the day

  • I was lucky to show up a the CN Tower at 6pm. The line was minimal to go up. Yeah very exciting with the window View of the city going up. When I reached the top and the doors opened. I had to stand close to the wall because of View was was not what I expected. The city You Can See For Miles. They have a few choices for meals. A little something for everyone. As you watch the clouds float underneath you. I'm a big fan of sunsets so if you get to see it there you won't be disappointed. And as the city goes into darkness. The city comes alive with beautiful lights. Little Slice of Heaven I think.
  • Breathtaking views of Toronto whether you go during the day or after dark. I recommend going AT LEAST an hour before sunset so you get the best of both worlds! So if there is a line up you wanna give yourself some extra time to get into the elevator. Also try going on a nice day when there is a game at the Rogers centre so the roof is opened! It's really cool! If you are celebrating a special occasion I think you will enjoy booking dinner at the 360 restaurant. The food is not the cheapest but it's a really good deal if you think about it. Consider that you get a free ride/access to the viewing area and the food is really good up there! I would suggest you try it at least once. The restaurant rotates slowly so really do get a 360 view! I find it cool. The only negative thing I would like to mention is the outdoor viewing area. When the lights come on you can't really see much from there and the pictures don't come out nice. But I won't take away stars for that ;) Also there are washrooms at the top and you can purchase drinks and food, which is really cool if you wanna hang out for little bit.
  • Amazing views and delicious food. Expensive but if you want to have a fancy or nice meal, I recommend this place. We did lunch prix fixe 2 or 3 course (65 and 79 $ respectively). I personally enjoyed dessert, but it's $14 basically the add dessert, so I'd recommend the 2 course if I went again. Lunch was wonderful because you can see everything around Toronto as opposed to just lights at nighttime. Lobster Bisque was great.
  • The CN tower is an exciting experience! From going up the tower in the elevator, to eating at the 360 restaurant, followed by walking on the glass floor, I had so much fun. There is always something new about the tower each year so any visit will not be a disappointment. Plan your trip to go on weekdays to beat the crowds. It is less busy during the evenings, but visiting either time of day will be beautiful! I hope to come back to try the edge walk!
  • Extremely busy, really packed. I was expecting a breathtaking view, especially for the price but to be honest it was alright. It got too much hype, especially thinking that there are so many people there it must be worth the steep price. If I didn't pay an extra fees (7$) then I would have had to wait at least 2 and a half hours. Which was ridiculous. And I also paid more to go to the sky pod, but that wasn't worth the money. The view was beautiful, I will admit. I even saw a small plane take off, but I did it once and I wouldn't pay that amount again. I just find it quite ridiculous. The glass floors was pretty cool, but you barely get a chance to really look at it because people are laying there and taking pictures. I understand that it's not the CN towers fault. However what I am really pleased about is the staff They were so helpful nice and friendly.
