They say it has the best view of Niagara falls...I don't agree. Save your money and spend it on the Skytower instead. The view was not all that and you're pretty far from the actual falls to get that great of a view that you can get elsewhere for better or free if you just go to the actual niagara... More

We took the Sky wheel to see the falls at night. You can't see much out the windows because they are so dirty. like the lady behind us said "I was happy to take it and even happier to get off."

I HATE HEIGHTS!!!!! This ride did not scare me at all, you are so comfortable and going so slow with hardly any type of rocking that it didn't even bother me being up that high. I liked being able to see all if chapel hill so I had a idea where everything was, the view of the falls was nice... More

This was part of our tour package but it would have been worth it to go there anyway. The views are spectacular and you get a real sense of Niagara Falls, American Falls and Bridal Falls all in one glance.

This skywheel is most definitely something you have to do, if you are visiting The Falls. I was thoroughly impressed that it was air conditioned! Beyond that, the view you get is awesome. We did 4 rotations and got very good pics of The Falls and surrounding area.

We did the wheel at night, when the falls were lit up, and it has AMAZING views. If you cannot afford the helicopter ride, this is the next best thing. For $10 a person, you can't miss it. (look for coupons, they have them all over!)

2 of our children aged 6 & 3, both enjoyed the skywheel. You are on this attraction for quite some time so be sure little ones use the rest room before getting on.

We thought the pice was reasonable. The staff was friendly and helpful with questions. The view is great of course. You see both the Canadian and American falls, though the American is closer so easier to see. The ride was smooth and you get to go around three times at least not including loading and unloading. When not looking at... More
