2º SECRETARIADO - ENGLISH II - ACTIVITY 3
AFTER WATCHING THE VIDEO ABOUT CN TOWER AGAIN, YOU PROBABLY HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT HOW SCARY THE EXPERIENCE OF LYING DOWN ON THE GLASS FLOOR IS. NOW, READ THE FOLLOWING TEXT AND ACCESS THE WEBPAGE ON THE LINK BELOW. I´M SURE YOU WILL FEEL MUCH MORE SCARED AFTER THAT.
AFTER READING, TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THE "EDGE WALK" AT THE CN TOWER.
EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, Toronto’s most extreme attraction, is now open!
EdgeWalk is CN Tower’s most thrilling attraction in its 35 year history, and the first of its kind in North America. It is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge encircling the top of the Tower’s main pod, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground. Visitors will walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them.
Designed with the highest international safety and security standards in mind, EdgeWalk will run 1.5 hours, with the outdoor walk lasting approximately 30 minutes. Tickets cost $175 CAD and include a keepsake video, photos and certificate of achievement. Participants will also receive a Total Tower Experience Ticket which includes access to Look Out, Glass Floor, Sky Pod, Movie and Motion Theatre Ride.
EdgeWalk will operate through October in all weather except for electrical storms and high winds. Varying weather conditions will make the EdgeWalk experience different with each visit.
