Great first stop at the falls

We drove into Niagara Fall ON and didn't quite know where to start...there was the Tower...easy decision. We went to the greeting desk, paid for our parking and got reservations... read more

Definitely worth the visit. Check coupon books, flyers, etc for discount coupons. We didn't eat here we just went to the observatory. Expect to wait in line to get to the elevator and also it looks as if the building could use some updating. When we first entered, we thought the building was closed - it's a rundown arcade and...

The Skylon Tower view is unparalleld - If you want to experience the view, just take the elevator to the top - DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON THE BUFFET! We paid over $130 for our family of four to suffer the buffet and left hungry. The food was tasteless, cafeteria-grade. The service was pitiful - even the drinks were terrible.... More

We drove into Niagara Fall ON and didn't quite know where to start...there was the Tower...easy decision. We went to the greeting desk, paid for our parking and got reservations for the buffet up in the tower. The food was good and the views superb. One disappointment was that the buffet level doesn't revolve. I think I would have paid... More

I think they said 750 feet up? At any rate, it's a terrific view. The elevator operators appear to be about 10 years old. But what can go wrong? Right? A very enjoyable experience. Their is a revolving restaurant up their, too. Didn't try it, but heard it was good.

The experience of viewing the falls from the skylon tower is indescribably and definitely worth the minimal fee. There is no rush to look around and get a perfect view of the falls and town from overhead...

We went to Skylon Tower on Canada day. It was the best experience of our Niagara Falls visit. We had dinner at the revolving dining restaurant. It was out of this world experience to watch fireworks from the restaurant window! I recommend this to everybody if you can afford to have dinner at this restaurant.

If you want a birds eye view of the Falls, this is worth the ride! You can stay as long as you want up top. The views are much better on the Canadian side than the US!

We had a plan to watch the falls from Skylon Tower at the same time had a plan to have our lunch in nearby place. But as we were in hurry suddenly decided to have lunch in summit buffet. And how lucky we were!! Breathtaking view we were enjoying with lavish buffet! No hurry, simply satisfying our taste buds and... More

Definitely not the most impressive tower, but the view of the falls can't be beat! We took pictures all day long and all of our favorites were from the tower!
