Amazing View

If you visit the falls you need to take this ride, such a great view of both falls and you feel very safe even if afraid of heights. Highly recommend

We were here with 3 teenagers for a holiday and we went on the Farris wheel. I wasn't expecting much, but it was actually very nice. It was very smooth and had a fantastic view. We went right at sunset and had a great time.

Worth the expense, a little cheaper if you buy the package deal. This is a very slow, enjoyable family ride that offers a tremendous view of the entire area.best viewed at night though.

We went in the evening and the views were beautiful. We only had about a 5 minute wait. The skywheel cars were comfortable and clean.

Though Skylon tower is a lovely way to see as far as possible and get a bird's eye falls view, for a climate controlled more personal look, try the Skywheel.
