The Amazing CN Tower....... Canada's Wonder of the world!

Creating a spectular skyline in downtown Toronto is Canada's most breath-taking, recognizable and celebrated icon. CN Tower stands at a height of 553.33m (1,815 ft., 5 inches), it is Canada’s National Tower, the World's Tallest Building, an important telecommunications hub, and the centre of tourism in Toronto.


In the tower is the amazing glass floor and the observation deck. Its a real test of courage to walk across the glass floor at 113 stories above the ground! That dare to walk on air experience, with only 2 1/2 inches of glass holding you 342m in the air lol. Amazingly the glass floor can withstand 4,100 kPa (600 lbs/sq in) or the equivalent to 14 adult hippos, so be brave next time lol...

The tower have a magnificent revolving 360 resturant, that offers a breathtaking spectular veiw, and a romantic evening.If the glass floor isn't enough excitement for you, hit the Arcade or LEGO Racers: The Ride motion simulator ride. The Maple Leaf Cinema also plays a 15 minute film on the construction of the tower 30 years ago.

Amazing isnt it??
