Those were the three words I kept repeating to myself during my visit to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver. I have a funny thing with heights. I’m totally fine with roller coasters and free fall rides, but if you put me on a bridge (especially a narrow or wobbly one), I will freeze. I guess I’m okay as long as I’m falling. Some evolutionary instinct there, haha.
Anyway, the park itself is beautiful! Slightly pricey at the $30 admission fee, but definitely worth it! I took about 2 hours to make my way through the whole park, and I was going pretty fast because I had a flight to catch. So I would say budget 3-4 hours here. They have cafes around the park that serve food and snacks in case you get hungry! They also have a free shuttle that runs from downtown every 30 min. or so (at least in the summer) so no need to drive!
They have three attractions here, the most popular being the suspension bridge. All three attractions are included in the price of admission, so don’t worry about having to choose just one. The other two are the cliff walk and the tree-top walk. If you’re actually deathly afraid of heights, I don’t recommend coming here, like at all. Unless you’re fine with just walking around the park. There’s great scenery throughout the park, don’t get me wrong, but I personally don’t think it’s worth the admission fee unless you experience the attractions as well. All the bridges/platforms (besides the one on the cliff walk) are very high and a little wobbly and shaky. The views are incredible, though. I didn’t take any pictures of the views DOWN (for obvious reasons), but I’m sure they’re just as amazing.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post! I wish I took more pictures when I was actually ON the bridge. I tried, I promise, but my hands were shaking so bad that everything was coming out blurry. And after 3-4 tries I decided that I had better not risk dropping my camera too.
