Modern Times Wonders C.N. TOWER & SKYDOME Toronto, Canada
C.N. TOWER and SKYDOME
Located on Lake Ontario, the C.N. Tower looms 5,535 metres into the sky. Four external lifts race upwards at a speed of six metres per second and the rapid journey to the Skypod Platform takes a mere 58 seconds.
There is also a special lift to the tower’s highest point, the so-called ‘Space Deck’, which contains the world’s highest located observatory. One hundred forty-seven stories tall and with downward slanting windows, a certain feeling of queasiness is to be expected!
Home of the Blue Jays baseball team, the Skydome is a massive multi-purpose building with an extendable 3.2 hectare roof. The huge sports field is fitted with 106 rolls of light green grass and is illuminated by 776 2,000 Watt floodlights. It also boasts the largest scoreboard in the world.
The C.N.Tower and Skydome – gigantic constructions that takes the breath away and are worth far more than a second glance!
