Built in 1976, and defining the Toronto skyline at a height of 553 metres (1,815
feet), the CN (Canadian National) Tower is the world's tallest tower and
Canada's most famous attraction. Constructed primarily to provide the best
communications for the city, the tower now attracts around two million visitors
each year who enjoy the breathtaking view and entertainment facilities the site
has to offer.
Located on the north shore of Lake Ontario, the tower rises up from the heart of
the city's entertainment district in downtown Toronto, close to Union Station,
and has four impressive viewing levels.
The lowest, at 342 metres (1122 feet), is the astonishing Glass Floor and Outdoor
Observation Deck with the Indoor Observation Deck and Horizons Café just four
metres (14 feet) higher. The award-winning '360' restaurant is at 351 metres
(1150 feet) and rotates once every 72 minutes to give an unobstructed panoramic
view over cosmopolitan Toronto. Close to the top, at a dizzyingly-high 447 metres
(1465 feet), Sky Pod is the world's highest public observation deck.
At lower levels, the Tower has a variety of diverse simulator and interactive
attractions ranging from prowling dinosaurs and life-threatening comets to a
gentle trans-Canadian journey, as well as the 'Marketplace' with its interesting
array of shops and stalls.
Open: Sunday to Thursday 10:00 am to 10:00 pm; Friday and Saturday 10:00 am to
11:00 pm (General Access) Daily 11:00 am to 7:00 pm (Attractions)
Tickets: Save up to $49 CAD on entry to Toronto's main attractions and avoid standing in a queue, with the Toronto CityPass, including entry to the CN Tower, Science Center and Zoo.
