CN Tower

On Sunday after brunch at LeSelect we walked to the CN Tower.  Of course the lines were extremely long due to the busy holiday weekend in Toronto.  It was about 30 minutes in line to get tickets and then another 45 minutes once past the ticket counters to get to the elevator.  Tickets were $32 per person!! The $32 does not even include the even higher SkyPod viewing deck which would be an additional $12!!! There is a more reasonable family pass if you are a family of four for $99.

They have added an additional attraction called the “EdgeWalk” which is really insane!  We most definitely passed on that attraction. We walked around the observation decks for about 30 minutes and saw the glass floor feature of this tower which is an interesting attraction.

While visiting the CN Tower was an interesting experience we would both pass on ever needing to visit it again.  Maybe if there were no lines and the price was more similar to the $18-$20 for the Willis Tower in Chicago charges it could be worth it. But for $64 or almost $90 for two tickets for the observation deck and the SkyPod it is not worth it at all in our opinion.  We are happy we gave it a go and checked off our site-seeing list.  The views are nice and its a good way to see the city from the top!
