EdgeWalk, located at the top of Toronto's CN Tower, is now open to thrill-seekers and adventure-lovers. The 116-story building hosts North America's highest external walk on a building.

Those who aren't afraid of heights are invited to walk in a group of six around the 5-foot wide ledge. While there is no handrail, you are strapped into a harness while you gaze at downtown Toronto and Lake Ontario, 1,168 feet below.

The entire tour is an hour and a half, with the outdoor walk lasting 30 minutes. In addition to a huge dose of adrenaline, visitors receive a keepsake video, photos, certificate of achievement, and a Total Tower Experience Ticket (which includes access to the Look Out, Glass Floor, Sky Pod, movie, and motion theater ride). Tickets are $175 CAD (US$176).

Participants must be 13 years old or over and weigh between 75 and 310 pounds. And be sure to empty your pockets before you go: You don’t want anything to fall from those heights.

The attraction is open from May until October, but check the weather before you go; it will close for high winds and electrical storms (not that you’d want to be dangling at that height during a lightening storm, anyway).
