Does your happy dream include endlessly falling? If so, you're going to love the "Edgewalk".

Yes, you can walk on the edge of the tallest building in the western hemisphere: the CN tower in Toronto.

The tower stands 116 stories high, 1,168 feet from base to tip.

All you have to do is put on a special suit and harness, sign a waiver, and take a breathalyzer test, just to make sure you're in your right mind.

There are no rain delays here--- unless there's high wind or lightning.

From Toronto, you could see Rochester, New York and even Niagara Falls in the distance.

Of course, you could just drive there are see them close-up, but where's the thrill in that?

The Edgewalk costs $175 Canadian currency per person (that's $183 USD if you're planning to go).
