You can get $1 off the ride in the coupon books located in most hotels, shops, etc...Great view, we went at night and the lights were amazing. Climate controlled so even on the coldest nights it is very comfortable.

Great way to get above the falls and see the views over three falls. I was there in May, so early on in the tourist season and did not have queue to get on the wheel. I can't recall the prices exactly, but paid around $45-50 for three adults and two children, which seemed like good value. The wheel must... More

The SkyWheel did have amazing views but it was also a great stop for the young children after lots of walking. I believe it was the best one I've ever been on.

Great views of attractions at night time all lit up, very pretty views. Seating area is enclosed and heated. The ride itself is 10-15 minutes? I enjoyed this and found the price quite reasonably at approx. $11.00 before taxes. A full relaxing ride that is better to go on at night.

It's relaxing, you get great views, it's heated and has some music playing (all can be turned off/on). I would suggest going in the winter, but not when it's snowing, raining and/or foggy.

I like this attraction very much...especially in February :) Never a long line-up, it's heated inside, and there is soothing music playing, which is great, especially if your husband isn't fond of heights ;)

Nothing to dislike enjoyable way to see more of the Falls. The pods are air conditioned so comfortable in all weathers. Would revommend to families as value for money unlike some attractions in the Falls area.

Great views of the falls from the SkyWheel. Also great views of the rest of the area. Cars are nice and comfortable. Typically you get 3 revolutions for the admission price. It would be nice if it was a bit longer. We took great pictures from the SkyWheel.
