My 9 year old enjoyed this so much we rode twice, once in daylight and once at night. Perfect view to choose your next attraction. Pleasantly surprised at how many times we got to go around in one go.

Fun and a great view of the area. Even though it was raining the day we went it was still enjoyable. The cars are roomy and climate controlled.

I am afraid of heights, so I hesitated getting on this. I will admit, while it was loading and we kept stopping I was getting nervous. After the first time around I was so enamored by the view that I forgot my fears and truly enjoyed the ride. Ride was a decent length. We went in October so we may... More

Quick ride around a few times. Very comfortable, safe cabins to sit in. Good view of everything around. We did the ride at night so the Falls were lit up. If I were to go again I would go in the daytime. I think you would see more.

Fantastic views of the Falls from the Skywheel. Also very helpful narrative. Minimal waiting time when we visited in September - about 5 minutes.

My family enjoyed the skywheel. It was smooth and the view was wonderful! The ads say climate controlled, but for a cold evening, it was really not warm enough inside to be completely comfortable.

I always enjoy a ferris wheel but this was a little pricy for only 3 rotations. The views were nice but nothing different than I had already seen from my room and the tours we had taken. We made it a point to take the ride while there but wouldn't do it again.

We did the SkyWheel at night and you can see the falls from afar. There is also the Dinosaur Golf next to the wheel and at night there is a make believe volcano that would light up right next to the Skywheel. What a blast.

I would say best to go up at night to take in the falls and all the surrounding lights. I bought as part of the Clifton Hill Discount package which was good value. You got a decent amount of time on the wheel and it was perfectly safe and secure and gave us some great views. The only negative was... More
