I've been there before, but it was a long time ago.
I've tried to go a couple of times since but as it was the summer the line ups were HUGE with an average waiting time of 2 hours.
It's January and there are no crowds.
The convention is right beside the tower and for $21 I sloped off to have another look.
The vertigo starts in the elevator.
The glass strip you see running up the side is the lift.
It zips up at 53 kilometers an hour, carrying you ears popping, clutching each other nervously, 1,122 feet.
To its tip its 1,815 ft and 5 inches.
Read more about the tower here.
As you can see the view is awesome.
It's not just about the view from the windows.
The observation deck has a glass floor........... Everyone starts very tenatively sticking to the cross beams ( as if a 2 inch alluminium strip is safer), and avoids standing on the glass.
Little by little, you inch your foot out until you're staring down ....a long way down.
Ahh its just frosted glass right?
That's it for today folks.
Tomorrow Toronto is going to get wacked with 20 cms of snow.
Thats TWENTY centimeters!
The UK WOULD GRIND TO A HALT AND SHUT DOWN.
Thank god I fly home on Saturday.
Love to all
