CN Tower

CN Tower Glass Elevators Coming Soon


The chaps at the CN Tower have announced that a week from today, April 9, they'll begin running new glass floor elevators to propel visitors to the top of the tower. (No word on whether the elevators will continue to rise from there)

They also claim these are the world's highest and North America's first use of such elevators and will give riders a 5+ square foot view of the ground they'd be plummeting to if it weren't for the mere 2.5 inches of glass holding them up.

I've always been a tad nervous taking that elevator, so my ride up during the launch of their new LED system will likely be my last experience heading up the tower.

But for those looking for a bit of thrill, this is no doubt part of the effort to attract more visitors, despite the fairly outrageous prices that they continue to charge for tickets.

Is this enough to get you to visit the Tower again? For those of you that haven't checked out the CN Tower before, is this a good enough reason to cough up the cash?
