Capilano Bridge - discounted for Homecomers
« on: January 24, 2016, 04:24:17 PM »

Capilano Bridge

Touted as Vancouver's top tourist attraction, Capilano suspension bridge has been welcoming visitors since the late 1800's. 125 years on and it is now so much more than the bridge alone - experience a treetop walkway, or test your nerve on the Cliff Walk

Capilano have kindly extended a $3 discount to Homecoming attendees. If visiting after the convention you will need to show them your convention pass at the ticket office. If visiting before the convention a copy of your ticket confirmation will suffice.

At the top of my list of favorite places in Vancouver.  Walking in the trees is something everyone should experience.

I've done the bridge a couple of times. Might see if I can pluck up the courage to overcome my vertigo for the treetop walk.

Thanks Richard for enquiring about a discount! Every bit counts. ;)

Also, I wanted to add, there is a FB group of us going to Capilano on Tuesday, September 13th if anyone is interested. We were going to meet at Canada Place by the Digital Orca around 10am and then head out to the street to take the free shuttle to the park.

Would be a fun way to extend the fun surrounded my crazies of like mind. Everyone is welcome! :D

It is times like this that I wish I wasn't so scared of heights...
I would be the person who passes out in the middle and caused a scene..

This looks amazing!!!! Gutted that I won't be able to even go near it... LOL!

OMG I so wanna do this!! Though I don't even know how long I'll be in Vancouver -- I haven't even booked my flight yet  :-\ but this would be such a great experience.
Random thought ...does the student discount apply to only Canadian students..?

Anybody in town the Wednesday before the convention (9/7) want to get together for this? 
We have other plans for after the convention, so we won't be able to join that group.
