EDGEWALK 2014 SEASON BEGINS APRIL 14

Toronto’s Most Extreme Attraction now offers weddings of a lifetime!

 

EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, Toronto’s most extreme attraction, officially opens to the public for another exciting season at 12:00 noon on April 14.  Adventure lovers will once again walk on the edge of one of the world’s greatest man-made wonders, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground and this year weddings have been added to the list of memorable experiences on EdgeWalk.

 

The first of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk is the world’s highest external walk on a building, a full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the CN Tower’s main pod.  Thrill seekers walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them. 

 

EdgeWalk continues to receive enthusiastic local and international interest and having achieved “bucket list” status, quickly earned its place among the world’s greatest attractions.  Walkers as young as 13 and as young at heart as 90 have experienced EdgeWalk.   Many have embraced the unique opportunity to organize special walks including marriage proposals, birthday and anniversary celebrations and corporate team building and client appreciation EdgeWalks. 

 

NEW IN 2014 – EdgeWalk now joins the exclusive list of the world’s most unique and memorable locations to be married.  One of the highest ceremonies in the world, wedding parties of up to 8 join the couple on EdgeWalk for a ceremony 116 storeys above the ground! Additional guests watch the ceremony live from BaseCamp 3.0, located on the LookOut level. No wedding is complete without the perfect attire and EdgeWalk weddings feature specially designed walk suits – white for the bride, pink for the bridesmaids and tuxedos for the men.  Lacy Boland and John Kirk from Barrie, Ontario, were the first to be married on the edge of one of the world’s greatest man-made wonders on September 19, 2013.  See a video of their special day here:
