During our random and not so well prepared road trip to Toronto, we visited the CN Tower, because there is probably a law against visiting Toronto and not going up the CN Tower. I didn’t check, but I’m sure there would be, with dire consequences for anyone who flouts this law.
We bought $35 tickets for general admission to the tower (which also allows you access to the glass floor as well), but also had the option of paying an extra $12 to go up to the skypod level, where a 360 degree view of the city was available. We were told that on clear days, you could see Niagara Falls from that level. Feeling indulgent, we forked out the extra cash.
So what ended up being the best part of the visit for me?
From the main section, we got a good view of the city, even if it wasn’t 360 degrees of it.
After checking out the available view from that section, we went up to the skypod, with the plan being to go to the glass floor last. Was the $12 each extra worth it? It was sunny with some cloud, so not clear enough to see Niagara Falls that day, but a good view of the actual city.
The true highlight for me, though, was the section of glass floor, which my mother in law told us she had not ventured onto during their visit. In spite of this reassuring sign.
Even if you’re not going to set foot on it, it’s fun watching other people do it. Giggling kids, giggling adults. One couple were trying to convince their baby to crawl across it.
So is it worth a visit to the CN Tower for more than ticking it off a list?
I wasn’t blown away by our visit to the skypod, but I thought the general admission to the CN Tower was worth it. Just don’t step on the glass floor if you weigh more than 41 polar bears.
