Toronto: Does it still have the world's highest glass elevator?

Several years ago I went up the CN Tower in Toronto and was pretty impressed by portions of the floor that were in glass. It was a bit eerie seeing all the way down to the ground.

Now the CN Tower has a glass floor elevator and they're trying to set a new world record as the world's highest glass floor elevator.

It lost its 32-year-old world record to the Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates for being the tallest freestanding structure on the planet.

If you to see where you've been, take a ride. If not, just read this story about it on CBCNEWS.CA.

I always wanted to ride the elevator of the CN Tower. Some of my friends have been there and telling me that I should try it too. By the way, did it break the world record? Thanks.
