I strongly suggest you take the fun pass when you go to clifton hills, for $35 plus taxes you have 6 activities including the sky wheel.
Amazing view of the falls, try to be on the wheel for 10pm if you're lucky, because you get to watch the fireworks from in it, it's awesome.
2-3 non stop turns, then couple of stops at different heights to let ppl in and out.
All in all 8-10min ride , worth it with the pass, if not you will pay $18 plus taxes just for the wheel.
AC inside with music, it was clean and they disinfect with sprays between guests, thumbs up!!
Hope this was helpful
regards

Hi studpuppy! Thank-you for your wonderful review of the Niagara SkyWheel and your saving suggestion of the Clifton Hill Fun Pass. Definitely the most cost efficient way to do an abundance of attractions. We hope to see you again! Regards, Christine

During out visit, we rode the SkyWheel during the early afternoon as well as once just after dusk. It was gorgeous both times. We really loved seeing the Falls lit up for the night and took some great pictures! I was impressed by how well climate controlled the SkyWheel was. It was frezzing outside and we were all perfectly comfortable inside. Also, the windows on the car are designed to help reduce the glare and allow for great pictures. Definitely not something to be missed! (If buying the ride alone, it may seem a bit pricey, but if you are doing any of the other "FunPass" attractions, I would recommend getting the pass. It makes sense for the value.)

On Clifton Hill, the SkyWheel is a great enclosed cabin ride. We went up and around five times on one ticket! Spectacular views of both the American and Horseshoe Falls, as well as the whole of the Niagara Falls area. Well worth the price.

The Niagara sky wheel will be one of your favorite memories of visiting Niagara Falls. Enjoy a nice slow ride up to the top of the city with the greatest views of Niagara Falls that money can buy. Nice clean gondola with weatherproof cabin keeps you cool and comfortable on any day. I highly recommend this activity for you and your family.

For a high and tall point of view of Niagara Falls Canada you should try this attraction. For $14 an adult the wheel takes you around in a cab about 5 times and pauses at the top for about 3 minutes each time. This will give you many opportunities to take some photos to remember your visit to NF.

Great views of falls from this attraction!

Visited Niagara Falls twice during Covid once in late summer and then again in the fall. Felt very safe throughout the area. The town of the attractions all did a great job of socially distancing, taking temperature and required masks.

If you want a safe get away from the madness of current times this is the place to go. Everything is open air everything is socially distance and everyone is wearing mask.

Hi Abuc2020, Thank-you for the lovely review and for recognizing the safety precautions we had in place. Unfortunately, the government has everyone in lockdown again, but once we can resume please rest- assured we will have all measures in place again. We hope to see you back again!

If you want to see Niagara Falls in 10-12 minutes, then this is the attraction.

Temperature controlled pods allow you to see all the beauty of Niagara. There is an audio portion you can listen to while in the pod. We felt very safe and secure at all times.

We noticed staff cleaning the touch points in the pod after each guest left and prior to a new guest entering.

Very good customer service. Grace at the ticket counter was very pleasant, polite and personable. Made small talk while processing our tickets. The gentlemen assisting guests on and off the attraction were pleasant, even waving to my son a couple of times as we passed them at the base every time.

I would recommend this attraction at least one time when you visit Niagara.

We visited during Covid restrictions. They did a great job with spacing and sanitizing. The lineup was minimal which was a bonus for sure especially waiting with a 5 year old.

The view was great from way up top. It was 34C that day so having air conditioning in your car was excellent.

We noticed that people were never placed in a car that was just occupied. They were cleaning the cars in between visitors.

We used our Clifton Hills pass to get a ride on this wheel. It was a bitter cold evening but the view up there was better than expected and the ride itself lasted a lot longer than we thought it would. It was freezing in the little cabin and I don't think any heating was on so dress well. A beautiful evening well spent.

Went round 3 times one evening and it was a nice view however struggled with photos due to the lights from the cabin. Would probably recommend this in the day if your wanting to capture photos. Would only do this as part of the pass.

Hi jamie-leed90m Thanks for your feedback. There is a button in the gondola in which the light you can turn off (or on). We hope that you come back and try us again to capture some great photos! Regards, Christine Lynn
