CN Tower

CN stands for “Canadian National,” the railway company that built the tower to elevate broadcast and telephone signals high over the city’s skyscrapers. More than a marvel of civil engineering, it’s a one-of-a-kind experience.

Six high-speed, glass elevators - some with glass floor panels - take you to the top in 58 seconds.

The Look Out level and the Glass Floor level, one floor below, offer breathtaking views and horizons.

They offer 2 unique options including a state of the art show and a simulation ride.

The Height of Excellence is a 15-minute movie about the construction of the CN Tower.

Himalamazon is a special-effects simulator ride – complete with wind and water that includes a fast ride down ravines and through caves. Note: Riders must be 42 inches (107 cm) tall..

Interesting Info: The tower’s LED lighting system can display a thousand colors. The ones you’ll see more often are the colors of Canada: red and white. Variations reflect holidays, celebrations and causes. During fall and spring the tower goes dark to keep migrating bird distractions to a minimum.
