We were there at sunset. Great view of the falls. It makes at least 3 turns with A-C so it does not get to hot.

We brought tickets during the day and then decided to come back after dark, great decision. Great views of all of Niagara and the falls. Was a nice relaxing 10 minutes. Must do when in Niagara

I have rode this twice in the last few years. Both times I rode it more for my kids than anything else. It is a neat ride which gives a good view of the area, but it is a bit pricey for a whole family. The ride is very smooth but still probably not good for someone with a fear... More

We rode the wheel just after New Year's. No line. The ride wasn't that long. I can see during peak times that the wait might be longer than the ride. The view from the top of the falls was pretty good though our hotel room had a more extensive view of the area

The wheel in itself offers a good view of clifton hills and the falls. However it is very short and expensive. There are better options for seeing the falls. 24$ for 2 adults. Ten minutes ride.

The area were it's located is very touristy but there are a lot of activities to do there so we ended up paying for a package, which was not too bad. While we were there, the wait was not too long and once we boarded, the wheel went around 4 times I believe, about 10-15 minutes. It was not something... More

Now I know it's not the Orlando Eye but the Sky wheel was quite disappointing. You got a whole wooping 8 minutes and it spins faster than what would be expected. The only cool shot would be with the American falls in the background if your lucky and fast enough to take the shot. Ticket Agent was very rude and... More

Enjoyed our trip on the Skywheel. We went off peak, so no line up, just stepped right on. Lovely views in a nice clean gondola

Enjoyed this very much and the view fantastic. Was a little bummed when the attendant said it will be about 10 minutes while we change a tire. What was my reaction. Who knew a tire was involved to turn this monster.
