We saw a brochure for the Summit Suite Buffet in the Skylon Tower. We made reservations the night before and got there early. The line for the elevator was not too bad. The elevator ride up to the restaurant was amazing its open to the outside of the building and gives you a great view of the falls and the... More

If you do not like heights, this is not the attraction for you. We only did the observation deck, but it was a great experience. Loved the views.

We were seated for dinner during sunset at the revolving restaurant atop the Skylon Tower and had great views of both Niagara Falls and Horseshoe Falls, and gradually of the 360 landscape. However, we had misread the menu pricing at the bottom (which turned out to be only for early seating) and paid much more than we'd planned. It was... More

Fast-speed lift takes you up to the observation platform in few seconds - very impressive. As you walk on the platform around the tower, you can see far away and take photos. Bring high-zoom camera with you - the landscape is magnificent. Tip: Don't be tempted to pose in front of sympathetic guys taking photos of you at the basement... More

The tower offers great views of the falls and the city. It's a must-do while visiting. We actually went up twice - once just for the sightseeing and another time when we went to lunch (access to the tower is included when you go to lunch or dinner at the buffet or the spinning restaurant). It wasn't crowded either time... More

A must do if you're in Niagara Falls. The views can't be beat and it was just incredible to see a 360 view of the area.

Yes it gives you great views of the area but it is a bit dated, and set in a theme park/arcade type of environment which has seen better days. We went up in the evening when dark and although cold it wasn't very busy. A good view just not sure if it was worth the effort.

Going up to the observation deck of the tower was nice. Our issue was with the buffet lunch we had purchased before we travelled. Paperwork stated to arrive 1/2 hour early which for us would be two o'clock. We actually got there at 2:10. We were told that they were so busy, we'd have to wait. "Come back at 2:15."... More

Perhaps I should not compare this to the Space Needle....but at the observation deck, there was no place to sit. Sights were well marked from the inside, but not the outside. To be able to enjoy refreshments while sitting and enjoying the view would have been much better.
