“Good for a view, not pictures”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This is a great option to see Niagara but not very good for pictures. The ride is on the short side but the view is nice and it is relaxing after walking around for awhile seeing all the other sites.

“great views”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

best time to go is once it has gotten dark , especially on a clear night . Nice enclosed car with soft music playing and a breath taking 360 deg view from the top , we try to ride it every time we are there .

“Great but.....”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

Well worth it BUT the lights don't come on the falls until 8.30pm so at night don't get in line to ride until 8.30. During day definitely ride on a clear day, as the view is super. This wheel is open until 2am on Saturdays!

“Awesome Ferris Wheel!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

The SkyWheel provides amazing views of Niagara falls and the surrounding area. They SkyWheel was very affordable and we got to make 5 rotations with stops every time around.

“Nice ride”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

It was a little pricey but you get to go around at least 3 times. It is nice that it is enclosed and we were the only ones in our car. It was very windy and although we are not afraid of heights it was a bit scary when the car was rocking that much. During the third rotTation the wind slowed down and it was much nicer.
