TORONTO -- After losing its 32-year-old world record for being the tallest freestanding structure on the planet, Toronto's famed CN Tower is looking to set a new benchmark -- but people afraid of heights or elevators should probably avoid what's being billed the world's highest glass-floor elevator.
Dubbed a North American first and the highest in the world, the recently completed elevator gives visitors a thrilling new perspective on the city -- 346 metres straight down -- through two glass-floor panels totalling two metres of floor space.
"At the tower we continually do upgrades to all of our equipment, including elevators and it was time to do an upgrade to this elevator,'' Jack Robinson, the tower's chief operating officer, said -- insisting it has nothing to do with losing its claim to fame.
"We took the opportunity to not just upgrade the elevator, but to put in a world class attraction, if you want to call it that, in the form of a glass-panel floor.''
The 553-metre building was knocked out of the top spot by the Burj Dubai -- a 160-storey hotel, residential and commercial building in the United Arab Emirates. The glitzy $4.1-billion building, which is still under construction, is already 629 metres and counting.

I'd be puking all over the glass floor by the time it reached 100 feet.

I seen a video of what the floor looks like on the news last night.... there's not really much of a view except the CN Tower curving underneith you as you went up. You might see more as you got higher, but I didn't see anything fancy about it.... and it didn't look like it was the entire floor either.

For all you horney elevator perves, you might be disapointed.
