Toronto's CN Tower is a test for even the most extreme adrenaline junkies.
But budding dare devils now face a new challenge, as the tower's operators plan to let people walk hands-free around the outside of the 116 story structure - held in place by only a cable.
For just $175, thrill-seekers can stroll around the top of Toronto’s famous CN Tower with no guard-rail and just a 5ft (1.5m) wide see-through ledge underneath.

At 1,167ft (356m) above the ground, the EdgeWalk will reward the brave with some breathtaking open-air views of Canada’s largest city, Lake Ontario and Buffalo, NY.
The first attraction of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk claims to be the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk at 116 stories above the ground.
‘We're extremely proud of the records the CN Tower has held throughout the years, including our strong safety record,’ said Jack Robinson, CN Tower's chief operating officer.
‘Our facilities and engineering team supervised the EdgeWalk project design and build to ensure that it is both exciting and safe.’
The attraction surpasses the Sky Tower walk in Auckland, New Zealand, at 629ft (192m) high and the Macau Tower Skywalk at 764ft (233m) above the ground.
EdgeWalk is set to open August 1 and advance ticket sales begin in June.
