About
Climb this 1,815-foot-tall observation tower to have the whole of Toronto at your feet and overlook up to 100 miles on a clear day. Once the tallest structure on Earth for over 30 years, the CN Tower attracts travelers to its two observation decks—one of which features a glass floor. If you’re looking for an extra thrill, try Edgewalk, where you can walk hands-free on a ledge surrounding the top floors. The tower is also home to the award-winning 360 Restaurant, which completes a rotation around the structure every 72 minutes, giving you an ever-changing view of the city while you dine. – Tripadvisor

    Great views
    Went up here as part of our City Pass. We were fortunate that during our stay we had plenty of clear days - and on the one we went you could see for miles. Not being a local didn't appreciate all the sights we could see, but that didn.t take away from the experience. The glass floor experience wasn't open during our visit as closed for renovations - but am sure that would have been good

    Wanted to experience it for myself.
    I was always curious about what it would be like to go to the top because of it's popularity among tourists and finally I made it here. When you come here prepare to spend money because parking 🅿️ expensive and so is the admission fee. The waiting lines aren't too bad and they move steady and there's also a security check point. Once past this there are plenty of gift shops and eateries. The ride to the top is rather swift. Once at the top you are at the observation deck 😲 and pretty much the same offerings as down below. It's well worth the visit and there's plenty of room to move about.

    A must visit if in Toronto
    We visited the CN tower on a busy evening after being unable to see the top of the tower in the morning due to low visibility. Having been here 25 years ago I was disappointed to find that the glass floor was no longer there and about a third of the floor space was now taken up with tables and chairs thus restricting the full view. The view is still outstanding and worth the visit. Not sure if the extra 10 dollars is worth the trip up to the next level but lots of people did. We did however get to see the Rogers stadium roof open with a baseball game in play hence 4 stars rather than 3.

    Iconic
    Iconic tower in Canada . Right in the heart of the city . Missed seeing it in night . I heard it’s spectacular in the night . There is a observatory with some great views . We chose to go to skylon observatory and had to skip CN observatory. It’s still a great place for family pics and going around . Parking is tough. Paid parkings all around .. good overall .. 👍👍👍

    A must!
    We visited the tower on a Saturday afternoon around 7 PM. We were a little bit late for our timed ticket, but it wasn’t an issue. There was really no line, everything moved pretty quickly. Up in the tower there was a lot of people, but there was still room for us to walk around, take pictures, have a seat. The whole thing took about an hour. We got really nice pictures, and the way down was also pretty quick. This is a must… You can really see the whole city.

    Family dinner at the 360
    We booked dinner at the 360 restaurant for a family reunion. Kate in sales did an excellent job organizing and communicating the event. She was very professional and made sure all dietary requests were accurate. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. I highly recommend eating at the restaurant and enjoying the beautiful view.

    Just okay
    This was over priced or should have been discounted because observation floor was under construction. The view was okay we paid the extra to go up to the higher level but perhaps that should have been free to compensate for glass floor closure. Was okay but not worth almost 200.00 for 2 adults and 1 child

    CN Tower provides a view and hospitality plus
    A visit to the CN Tower is more than just an elevator to the top. I recently visited with the University of Pittsburgh Treble Choir and our arrangements were made by Alexandria Macchione and when we arrived we were greeted by Selma and Arantxa. They helped with the arrangements for the choir to perform in the courtyard. It was a beautiful day and the courtyard provided a beautiful setting for the Choir.
    Hi Cheryl, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and for gracing our patio with the beautiful sounds of the University of Pittsburgh Treble Choir. We will pass along your lovely comments to the team and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.

    Toronto anniversary trip
    This was high and costly but it has to be done to take it off a list of things that scare me. Thought that it would make me sick. We picked a calm day and clear day so the building wasn't moving. The view from the top was great. Pay the extra 10$ for the ride to the top. Meal prIce was not bad at the top. There is a coupon on line to pair up with Wipleys Aquarium.
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your experience. We currently have a ticket option called Sea the Sky, which allows guests to visit both the CN Tower and Ripley's Aquarium for one lower price. More information is available on our website.

    Worth the price of admission
    While I was fortunate to strike a day where there was little or no queue, the tower is worth it. The view is spectacular and provides a great insight into the sheer size of the city, its surrounds, and Lake Ontario. You are so high, don't be surprised if your ears pop on the way up in the elevator. Mine did.

Booked on-line and very straightforward admission process, so speeding upwards in a lift in no time. Superb views all round, one or two novelty things to try like leaning out at am angle and looking down through a glass floor. Some pictures affected by windows that need cleaning or glare. Quite a good gift shop.

We visited the tower as part of a Viator half day tour. We got there when it opened, there was no wait and we had plenty of time in the observation area. It was fun to see all around the city and pick out our hotel and other attractions.

The glass floors in the elevator and observation tower and floor to ceiling windows are fun and a little unnerving.

Next time: I'll plan to eat dinner in the revolving 360 restaurant.

An absolute must, the views take your breath away.
On a good day you can see Niagra falls and New York!
Don't be tempted not to do it!
Wished I had done the skypod.

We were looking forward to come and dine at 360. The view was fantastic and food was delicious! Service was ok. We felt that we got more assistance from the back wait than the server. Very disappointing.

My husband & I went on a Sunday night at 7pm mid May. It was crowded but we enjoyed the views & sunset. We didn’t eat & we purchased the basic tickets online while in the line as recommended by the staff. If you have a presto card, I think there’s a 15% discount for in-person purchase which sounds worthy. Because some areas were closed off, I felt the value was not there. Still, we had a very good experience.

Unique way to see the city, the lake, and the area. My wife and I had visited before, but first time for our young adults. They loved it, and even braved the glass floor, though their parents did not.

We did the basic observation deck. Upper floor is having some work done, so about a third of the circle is not available. The lower floor where you catch the elevator back down had almost no view outside, but had the famous glass floor.

This is a cool spot to visit if you’re visiting Toronto. We did the regular tickets and added $10 to go to the sky pod. It’s definitely really high up and a neat experience. I would say I didn’t really see THAT much of a difference in the two heights. It obviously is much higher but I wouldn’t see a need to spend $10 again if I had a choice. Glad we did it though!

While the views of Toronto from the CN Tower are beautiful, it is worth mentioning that about half of the area is closed for renovations and it significantly limits the experience. For being charged full price we expected more. In addition, the staff packs the elevators to almost over capacity which could be a safety issue.

You can see the whole of Toronto here. I suggest you visit at night due to the charming night view of the city with bright lights.
