Move over, Spider Man: skyscraper scaling is the domain of non-superhuman beings now. In August 2011, Toronto celebrates the 35th birthday of the city's CN Tower with EdgeWalk, a new program that invites visitors to undertake a death-defying course in acrobatics by stepping out onto the narrow five-foot ledge that rings the iconic 116-story tower's circular pod—there's an overhead safety harness, but no railing. Guides will encourage pushing your personal limits to really experience the vertiginous 30-minute rush, which promises to thrill even the most blasé of tourists.
