CN originally referred to Canadian National, the railway company that built the tower. In 1995, the CN Tower was declared one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World.
There is 360 Restaurant at 351 meters. It is a revolving restaurant that completes a full rotation once every 72 minutes.
On a clear day, it is possible to see up to 100 to 120 km away.
On August 1, 2011, the CN Tower opened the EdgeWalk, an amusement in which thrill-seekers can walk on and around the roof of the main pod of the tower at 356 m (1,168.0 ft). Visitors are tethered to an overhead rail system and walk around the edge of the CN Tower's main pod.
