It gets your pulse going and it gives an experience you don't get to often feel in your day to day.

When is the last time you were truly terrified? It's cool to test your limit sometimes to do that

Things like this don't operate on being dangerous, they operate on the illusion of danger. You are very safe.

I don't really get terrified. If I want the sensation of a heart racing, pulse pounding feeling there are other more enjoyable things that provide that, imo, than walking outside really high in the air. Not a big fan of heights but thats not the reason why I wouldnt do it, just doesnt seem like fun to me. Its walking in a circle

What would get your pulse racing?

Do you know what the winds are like up there? My old boss did a renovation on top of the restaurant and said it was CRAZY up there.

Looks fun, but for $175 I'd pass. I'd do almost anything that involves heights except skydiving. The fear of the parachute malfunctioning is always lurking behind my head.

lots of things get the pulse going: racing, HUnting, Sex to name a couple.

And yeah, used to work construction, never been 100 stories up but been 10 and it is a huge difference in the amoount of wind.

i watched a documentary a few years back about basejumping in toronto. These are guys that would climb up highrise construction sites and jump off the top. and the way they described it is that NOTHING would give them that kind of rush or feeling that jumping off a building did. People will do some crazy shit for a thrill, but to them it's not crazy at all.

I think it's really cool that the CN tower has come up with this. and given the unforgettable experience i actually think $175 is a pretty reasonable price. i don't know how much actual bungy jumping or skydiving costs, but i assume it's similar.

As for if i would do it.... FUCK NO.

I was expecting those side walks to be no more than 2 feet in width to the point where you have to hold onto something so you don't fall. $175 for just that is lame lol.
