At first I was kind of hesitant about the tower but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a chance. Once we got closer I started noticing how massive this structure was. The magnitude of it, the elevators & the construction itself are to admire. Once We arrived to the top ... (of the world ) I was... More

We paid $12 just park in the restaurant parking lot. The lunch buffet was $70 for two. The food was very good but, nothing special. What makes it worth the outrageous expense it the once in a lifetime view!!!

Going up we were on the falls side so video'd it, has the wow factor, it was a bitter cold morning & the winds blasted you as soon as you walked out of the door but it was all fine from the inside part. Great views of the falls.

Skylon Tower is a major landmark seen from everywhere within the Falls. Sadly, in a state of major disrepair and in need of serious updating. A lot of the arcades in the lower level are out of order and it is sad to see the Skylon in it's current condition as I remember how it used to be. How many... More

The view is amazing and this is in Canadian side of Niagra. We walked from our hotel to Skylon Tower and of course to the rest of the attractions. We really enjoyed the stay here and it is a must visit attraction if you like to see a view from the top. We didn't eat at the restaurant and we... More

I was with a Road Scholar group. After the lunch up in the tower, I was presented with a "hand written bill" for $3.50. Apparently the coke I ordered was not included in the lunch provided for our group. I placed $4.00 down. The waiter collected the money and when at a safe distance, he put the money in his... More

A little boring at the base with two over-priced gift shops, an arcade, and a high-end glass shop. At the top, observation level, is a view worth going for. There is an outdoor deck as well. There are two restaurants at the top, one is a buffet. The buffet is a little pricey, but not when you consider the free... More

This was fun from the elevator ride to the top to the amazing view. The lady on the lift was so nice and talked to us the whole way up. It was cold outside the day we were there but worth it. Great view!

This tower is really worth doing on a clear day as the view of the falls is amazing, you get a complete 360 view and there are also small notes at each window so you know what you are looking at. You can also have a meal in the restaurant, which was not open when we were there.
