CN tower was completed in 1976 on the former railroad grounds. It is 553.33 meters tall – number is easy to remeber! For almost 35 years CN Tower remained the tallest free standing structure of the world. Now there are 2 more towers that are taller, but I am not mentioning them in this post.

Edgewalk

On August 1, 2011, the CN Tower opened the EdgeWalk, an amusement in which thrill-seekers can walk on and around the roof of the main pod of the tower at 356 m (1,168.0 ft), which is directly above the 360 Restaurant. It is the world's highest full-circle, hands-free walk. Visitors are tethered to an overhead rail system and walk around the edge of the CN Tower's main pod above the 360 Restaurant on a 1.5 m (4.9 ft) metal floor. The attraction is closed throughout the winter season and during periods of electrical storms and high winds.
