Visited the Skywheel at night - views amazing with the falls lit up, very pretty. Pods can hold 4 -6 people. Best time to around 10pm after fireworks, as the queue was not that long - highly recommend👍

Bought the Clifton Hill fun pass and this ride was included and was fun to see and ride....but glad that I received a discount to ride it. Note: with the card you get Skywheel movieland wax museum, Ghost Blasters Dark Ride, XD Theater, Dinosaur adventure golf OR Wizards golf.

The Skywheel does provide a good view of the falls at any time of day. The cabin holds about 8 people and it is possible that you will be grouped with others while taking the ride.

I took my 4 year old daughter on this as she wanted to go and she loved it. We went at night when it was dark and could see both falls lit up. We have a coupon and it was less than $20 for both of us and definitely worth the money. It is a must try.

pictures might be harder to take, but the views with all the lights are nicer :) on hot and sticky days, don't worry since it is ACed. line ups get emptied fast.

I'm glad we paid the $25 for the pass. It saved us waiting in line long. We got to go around 4 times but we couldn't get our pictures to be clear. We went when they were showing the lights on the falls. Sit on the right side of the car to see the falls the best.
