You get your own berth so you don't have to share with strangers and it's relaxing. The SkyWheel does three or four rotations at a fairly good pace. It's not fast but not slow, it's air conditioned and plays classical music before changing over to 80s jazz makeout music and back to the same classical music. It is $10.99 CA/pp. but every little booklet has a $1 off coupon for up to six people unlike the London Eye which was 35 pounds per person.

The dinosaur mini golf park is on the right side of The SkyWheel. I rode the wheel during the day but I think it would be really fun to ride it at night with all the lights of Clifton Hill. Also, the volcano in the mini golf park shoots up in flames at night that kids might enjoy seeing while riding the wheel.

Wait time was relatively short and the ride attendants were very friendly.

We decided to try this attraction at night to see the falls' illumination and to get a better view of the whole city. The glass was not that clear/clean and so it was hard to take nice photos. It was a nice experience, but I won't be looking forward to doing it it again.

Expensive and cheesy. If you want to get on it just to say you did it, like we did, then go ahead. It does offer some very good views of the Niagara area but the Skylon Tower view is way better.

This was part of a 5 part pass. I would have done it anyway. It offers a nice ride and a great view of the falls. The cars are all air conditioned.
