The view was great but no better than our hotel. Once we got down, we felt could have saved the $$. Did not eat at the restaurant as it was pricey and a family oriented buffet and we wanted something more romantic. Not bad, just not as great as we thought it would be.

Although a bit pricey, the food and choices at Skylon Tower were excellent. Savory and different, the buffet had much to offer in terms of salads and entrees. It goes without saying that the panoramic view of Niagara Falls, especially at night, is breath-taking.

Love the view from the top of the skylon tower can't beat it. The restaurant is ok of course everything at Niagara Falls is pricey but this is one thing worth it. If you don't eat at the restaurant at least go to the top of the tower for the view. But having dinner in the tower overlooking the falls... More

You are first corralled into taking souvenir photographs in front of a green screen. The package includes two backgrounds for $30 (CAD) plus digital copies. Then, you board the elevator and ride to the top! The elevators have glass on the front so that you can see the falls on the way up. The souvenir photos were high quality. I... More

My wife and I stopped here to grab lunch at the buffet and enjoy the view. Parking, like everywhere else in Niagara Falls, is not free. They do not accept credit cards at the entrance to the parking lot, but they did allow me to go inside to pay the parking fee. We checked in to the buffet in the... More

We did a quick trip up to the observation tower and it was great for taking pictures and seeing the falls from high up.Expensive for such a short visit but perhaps if you have a meal it would be a better deal.

We enjoyed the dinner in the revolving dinning and the view was great . Our waiter took our picture with our camera with the falls in the background . It turned out to be the best photo of the trip . The food and the service were very good . There is a fee to go up in the tower... More
