Skywheel provides a very good view of Niagara Falls from top. If you are in Falls first time then highly recommended. One trip is enough though I have been on it few times. Whenever I have guests with me we take them on Skywheel. It is not as high as London Eye is but still good.

Although we sat at a restaurant right next to the falls and we thought that was the best view around, the wheel was way better. It provides a great view of both the Canadian and US falls and it lasts a reasonable amount of time. We went in March so it wasn't busy. It was about $40 for a family... More

Hi there, Thank-you for riding our Niagara SkyWheel. We feel our price of $10.99/Adults and $6.99/Children is reasonable for the view that you get, however I do understand that when you pay for multiple people it does get pricey. We have coupons available both online and on-site on Clifton Hill to help alleviate some of the cost. We also recommend... More

Definitely nice views but it's pricey for what it is which is only a maybe 5 minute ride. That said we've made it a tradition to go on New Years day in order to start the year off on a high note...

Hi there, Thanks for riding the SkyWheel. We have the recording so that people can learn a little bit about the Niagara Falls and its history. There is a mute button on the ceiling if you wish peace and quiet. Totally understandable. Take care, Christine Lynn Social Media Coordinator clynn@cliftonhill.com More

Really liked the views from the top,not only of the Falls,but over the whole little township of Niagara Falls.With people always getting on and off,the wheel is continuously stopping so you get plenty of photo opportunities from various heights in all directions.

I think this is best done at night when the fall lights are on. The view is beautiful. Its a must due.

We arrived late at night hoping to get a view of the falls but the lights were already turned off. The ride itself was nice and you could see everything from up above. The staff were young, bored and did not like us showing up. Overall, it's a nice attraction.

This was my second time riding this and the first time I took my kods aged 17, 12, 10, 8 &6. They ALLLLL loved it! The wait is short, it is clean, staff is professional. It is a spectacular way to see the city and the falls, can't wait to go again:))
