The Skylon Tower is an awesome place to visit and eat dinner. The dining room is spinning around slowly and you can see everything around the area. The food was great, but very expensive! The observation area has wonderful views and is pretty easy to get to.

Food was OK, but prices were exorbitant. The view was nice but you can go to the observation deck for the view. Restaurant allowed guests in in two piece bathing suits and short shorts, etc. Not something you would expect at a 4 or 5 star restaurant. Prices = 4 or 5 stars food and ambience = 2 to 3... More

We stayed on the American side and paid for a 4 hour tour from the Niagara Welcome Center to the Canadian side. It was Canada Day and part of our package was to ride the Skylon at night to see the colors of The Falls and the fireworks. What a sight. The Skylon is extremely high…520 ft? and windy, but... More

I was very impressed with the view of course but the food was also amazing and the staff was great tooooo. We ate great steaks in the revolving dinning area. My fiancé and I were super happy we booked it.....beware of the tourist trap stores and picture salespeople lurking about lol'

We rode the Skylon tower to the top in about 50 seconds. If you want to see all three waterfalls this is the best way to see them above the mist and get great pictures. They also have three gift shops inside the tower along with a Starbucks. We didn't do them but there is a dinosaur exhibit and a... More

Unless you are in a room overlooking the Horseshoe Falls (Canadian Side) you owe it to yourself to have dinner here. It is pricey, but excellent quality. Just mentally prepare for that big bill and remember, you are paying for the experience.

This was included in our tour package with return tickets. We got to see the area in the daytime and at night. This is a great way to end your Niagara Falls visit so you can "revisit" all the places you have seen while there!

Suggest seeing the falls from above first as when you finally get down in the boat that tours the falls you are more amazed at how massive the falls really are. This towers gives great views and camera shots.

the view from the top of the tower is awesome. we paid for the combo pass that included the movie that is down the hill. The movie was only $6 that way, it was not even worth the $6!!! Save your money on that one and just by the ride to the top. We went in the evening right before... More

I liked the view but was somehow expecting more for the price. Was very crowded the day I went and took away from the enjoyment of the experience.
