For the first time in months, the CN Tower is reopening for public use. Mayor John Tory considers this a “hugely important” milestone to bringing back some normalcy to Toronto’s downtown core. Among the most famous tourist attractions in Toronto, it closed its doors on October 3rd as COVID-19 cases continued to rise.
Now that Ontario is in Step 3 of its reopening plan, the tourist site can welcome visitors with reduced capacity. The CN Tower opened one day ahead of Ripley’s Aquarium, another major tourist site in Toronto. The Toronto Blue Jays will be playing their first home game in Toronto on July 30 in front of a crowd of 15,000.
The CN Tower usually sees 10,000 to 12,000 guests on a typical summer day but COVID-19 restrictions capped it at 2,500. Officials say ticket sales have been plentiful and the popular EdgeWalk is already sold out for the first day back in operation. They will also start taking reservations for the tower’s 360 Restaurant on July 29.
