You have to go on the air conditioned Skywheel. You can see both falls a take great pictures. Plus tons to do around the area as well.

Awesome view of the falls. Excellent food. Our waitress was in personable and in attentive. Our bus person Rosa was excellent and definitely picked up the slack for Daniel.

We went on the Niagara SkyWheel yesterday and its simply a glorified Ferris Wheel with a view of Niagara falls. We got admission as part of a package deal they offer which makes it affordable. I would not pay the general admission price they charge otherwise. Not my favorite thing to do in the falls area.

I think we went around the Skywheel about 8 times. It was a great view of the Falls and surrounding areas. Enough pauses to get good photos. Enjoyable!

The ride is short and the super-structure of the ride and the not too clear glass marred the experience. I was expecting the ride to seem like a higher vantage point over the falls. It was not worth the wait to embark or the price.

This one we had walked by many times in the past and should have kept on walking. It was just ok. The ride consisted of maybe 2 - 3 uninterrupted rotations. The rest of the ride was stop and go and it was over almost before it even begun. With all there is to do in Niagara Falls this one... More

We bought the Clifton Hill fun pass online and got 2 rides on the skywheel. We rode once during the day and once at night. All I can say is Wow. You get a breath taking view. Worth checking out!

A typical ferris wheel, but enclosed and very high. Great view of the falls. Could be a bit longer, but the lines would be unbearable then.

Took the ride at sunset and the view from the top was spectacular. You go around a total of 4x, inclusive of the load/unload trip.
