Having lived in Niagara, the Falls was something that was just there & not appreciated. Since leaving the area, I finally appreciate what all the tourists flock to the area to see. The Skywheel gave me a view I've never had before. From the climate controlled car I was able to see the beauty of the frozen Falls. It was... More

We have been on the SkyWheel on several occasions. We experienced the fireworks from the wheel. The fireworks went off on a Friday night and was spectacular.

This is a definite must, you get quite a long ride and a great place to see the city below. Just your party rides at one time which is nice.

Well, it's a basic ride, however the view is amazing and it's white relaxing to be enjoying a sight seeing ride, and taking in your surroundings after walking through the business of Clifton hill! A pretty good little attraction I would try it again :)

It wasn't a quick ride, we saw the Falls at night - it was lovely. Privacy in the ride was nice too. We were able to make out like teenagers!

Perhaps Im picky, but I don't really see the point of the sky wheel, unlike cites such as London or Vegas. Niagara is very small, and outside the 1-2 streets of bright lights, there is nothing worth taking pictures of. Sure, you can zoom in on the falls through the scratched up plastic windows.

Decent pricing, very quick lineups, and well worth the money for the amount of time you get on it. Very beautiful view, night or day!

At $10 a head, the price is a little steep when it can hold 6 people per car. But the view is incredible and the operator gave us 4 turns around instead of the usual 3 we expected;)
