Actually I hate ferris wheels and this really wasn't an exception, However, I'm glad I rode it. You can see just about everthing including great views of the Falls. Especially great if you don't have a fear of heights, like me!

I love the skywheel the view was beautiful you can see the usa falls and the Canadian falls at the same time, you go around 5 times and slow so you have time to take pictures and see everything, is 10.50 (adults) and is really worth it.

At a little more than $10 Canadian, this offers a great value and some wonderful views. The ride itself is spotless, extremely well maintained and staffed by professional, friendly people (no wonder people love visiting Canada!). The polarization of the glass in the cars allows for fantastic pictures; very pleasant music plays inside the cars as well. Wonderful!

Loved going on the SkyWheel. I have done this in the day and night and both are amazing views and lights at night. Each car is completely enclosed for your safety and cooled or heated depending on the season.

The Niagara Skywheel is a lovely ride that allows visitors a super view of the Falls at night. It is best to pay for this attraction as part of a package deal like most of the attractions in the Falls.

I expected this to be a like a Ferris wheel and hesitated to ride it but I'm so glad I did! You feel very safe an secure and you can move around to take photos, which are amazing from this high up. My grandson and daughter rode with me and he loved it saying, "look, look!" from his new vantage... More

When picking up our new puppy, we decided to visit Niagara Falls, NY and Canada. The Canadian side a must. The falls are beautiful, restaurants with views are tops and the flowers and gorgeous. You must have your passport with you to do this. Walk over the bridge to the Canadian side,

Located in the center of the touristy and slightly tacky Clifton Hill amusements, shops and restaurants, the Skywheel (Ferris wheel) provides a great first look at both the American and Canadian Falls!

My wife is afraid of heights but she agreed to try the wheel and she was not disappointed. The ride is smooth and the view is nice and you feel very safe in the wheel.

If you purchase the Clifton Hills discount card, this is included. Theviews were great & Iit was a wonderful way to get some great pics from above the falls. You can see the American & Horseshoe Falls.
