As someone who is afraid of heights i was very reserved about going to the top. I am so glad I did! The elevator ride up is a little shaky, but the view from the top is out of this world! We went up on a clear day and you could see Toronto! The view of the falls is breathtaking! This is worth every penny of the trip to the top! If you look around in the promotional fliers around town you can find coupons to knock a couple dollars off.

Did lots of things in Niagara and this is something that should be done. It's a great way to see an aerial view of the falls. I really would have liked to eat dinner at the restaurant but it was way too expensive for our liking. Overall, it was a nice and smooth ride up and great view of the city at night.

Great fireworks show!!! and yes we were blessed with beautiful weather and great company. $11/adults and $7-9 for kids made it worth the fun.

If you are going to the Skylon I definetly recommend going at night. During the day, although it has a nice view of the falls, it's not worth the $12 CAD as you can get basically the same view from Niagara Parkway you are just not as high up. But it was worth it at night when the falls are lit up. Gift shops are also comparable in price to some of the discount shops. Great view of both U.S. and Canadian sides of the falls.

Recommend booking a table between 5pm and 5:30pm because it's $35 each for the buffet, but at other times its really expensive. It's very clean and classy and a lot too choose from. Especially there deserts! to die for! Also if you order a cocktail you get to keep the glass and they clean it for you before you leave. Its shaped like the skylon tower and even has a little lid. They even put it into a fancy little gift bag for you. There bathrooms are nice too, they have glass sinks that the water trickles down when you wash your hands. Only fault is they didn't have any baby changing facilities. They also have a huge amusement park as soon as you enter the building so beware if your bringing children. It's not worth it just to pay to go in the lift because it's so fast you are up there in less than a minute. You may as well eat there so you get a better look. The buffet section doesn't rotate though, only the dining room does.
