Paid $12 each to go up this tower. Nowhere to sit, nowhere to get a cup of coffee. The lift attendant didn't say a word to anyone. Never again.

We visited the Skylon Tower, for dinner, on the evening of our wedding. We'd booked a table for 7pm but got there a bit earlier. When we asked the waitress if we could hold off ordering for a bit (20-30mins) she agreed, begrudgingly, and muttered to her colleague that 'she would've said something if they were busy'. When we explained... More

The Skylon Tower has awesome 360 views of the Falls and surrounding area. Elevators take you up and down whenever you are ready. No reservations were necessary, just a ticket. Parking onsite was helpful. The outside observation deck was amazing, but really windy and cold in the winter. Dress warmly!

My wife and I thought we would try this place for the view, which to be fair, on arrival we found was quite a dear option. So we opted for the buffet dinner idea of having a meal and the view. When we arrived quite early, between 6-7pm we saw plenty of empty tables which were by the window, but... More

If you visit the NIAGARA FALLS you should go on the top of the Skylon Tower as you will have an incredible view of the falls. Very nice

Well worth the admission fee. The views are breathtaking and the photo opportunities endless. You can spend as long as you like walking around 750 feet above it all.

The Skylon Tower felt like an anti-climax. We couldn't really see much more of the Falls from the tower than our hotel room (which is by no means the tallest hotel in Niagara). Like the rest of Niagara, this attraction seems awfully dated (almost like Blackpool, UK...past its heyday).

Our food was amazing but what was supposed to be a romantic dinner for 2 left a bad taste in my mouth and I would never go back or recommend this place to anyone because of the obnoxious waiter and management. The waiter's English was not proficient and there were communication errors that when we tried to address in a... More
