CN Tower Glass Floor Celebrates 20 Years!

Popular with visitors of all ages is a walk on air on the world famous CN Tower Glass Floor and Outdoor Terrace where you can feel the breeze. The Glass Floor was a world first when it opened on June 26, 1994 and 20 years later it continues to thrill visitors looking 1,122 ft straight down to the ground. The CN Tower’s Glass Floor has inspired an international bucket list of see through floor experiences including the Grand Canyon, the Ledge, and many more.

The Facts

• Thickness: 2 7/8"
• Total overall size of the floor is 320 sq ft

Layers from the top down:

• 3/8" scuff plate (replaced annually)
• Two 1/2" layers of clear tempered glass, laminated together
• A one inch layer of air (for insulation)
• Two 1/4" layers of clear tempered glass, laminated together

Load tests are performed annually on each panel to ensure safety.

From the Glass Floor, the CN Tower offers a view 1,122 ft straight down, and even those not afraid of heights might need a little help. Think you can handle it? Wait till you get here and see if you feel the same way. The Glass Floor has been specifically designed for you to have fun on it, so walk or crawl across it, sit on it, or even jump on it. Don't worry it won't break. The floor is 256 sq ft of solid glass that is five times stronger than the required weight bearing standard for commercial floors. It can actually withstand the weight of 35 large moose. Also on this level, be sure to check out the Outdoor SkyTerrace. Feel the breeze at 342 m (1,122 ft) above the ground.
