Cool 20min. experience. But not worth it. This should be free considering the building is old and worn down. Everything is over priced in the stores inside. I would not recommend to others.

This is a good extra, but not a must do, unless you are dining up top. It is expensive otherwise. Great for photos from a different perspective.

Very beautiful view from the top, but possibly not worth the cost, unless you are also dining. The gentleman at the ticket counter was not very welcoming and ignored the two of us who were waiting in line. It’s not like he was rushed off his feet. The elevator operator was friendly and informative.

If you are planning to visit Canda side of Niagara falls from USA, I would recommend going through the Peace Bridge rather than the Rainbow Bridge as the wait times are shorter. e.g. When we went on a saturday the wait time on Rainbow bridge was 60mins while that on Peace Bridge was 10minutes. The skylon tower provides the best view of Niagara falls in my opinion. There wasn't a long wait time (less than 10 mins). Once you are up there there's glass enclosed area as well as open air area. It's best to take a fleece or light jacket as the open air area is a bit chilly. It was pretty windy too up there so be prepared for that. Overall it took about an hour from the point of parking the car to going up and coming back down.

We dined here before heading to Toronto and it was well worth the stop. The views were amaxing and the dining experience was a treat. We went for lunch, the menu was a bit more for dinner, as they really had only salads and entrees, aside from a burger. I recommend this for a romantic, special occasion or for dinner, but we did enjoy the experience.

We only went to the Observation Deck for the view. We did not go to the restaurant. For the price, I would not do this again.

We visited as part of an organised tour and our tickets were included in our tour, however there was no line for tickets when we visited. The tower was our first stop around 10 am, there was no line for the elevator and we got straight into the lift. When we got to the top there were few people which was a pleasant surprise.

When we visited there was a little low cloud due to rain but the views were still fantastic. I'd recommend a visit here for the 360 views available of Niagra.

If you want to have a nice overview on Niagara Falls, definitely come to Skylon! The view is stunning! There is no need to book online, the booking needs to be changed to the tickets anyway, so you can just arrive and enjoy Niagara Falls in full.

This place at first seemed like it may be a huge tourist trap. However, The food was outstanding! Delicious and hot and the menu was very diverse with many options even for those with children. The service was amazing, our waiter Dan made sure we had everything we needed and everything was to our liking. We were seated at a window seat which gave us amazing views of the city, the American and Canadian falls, and all of the surroundings. After all, it is a revolving restaurant! You don't even feel yourself moving, & You can see for miles and miles. Our children were entertained by artifacts on the wall as it turned about Niagara Falls and it's makeup, and history. We had a wonderful time! And it was a great experience our family will never forget! Very sensitive to our daughter's food allergies they made sure to make her a special meal and it was delicious! Definitely recommend!

This was included as part of our escorted tour. What great views you get from the tower! Definitely worth a visit.
