“Skywheel”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We went on the Skywheel around 10;30 at night. It was nice because the "pod" is enclosed and temperature controlled. The ride is a little short. It does provide a nice view. Glad I can say I have done it but I would not pay to go again.

“Another view of the falls”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

As with many of the activities around the falls, it offers another view. It is fairly expensive for what you get out of it. Since the cab is fully enclosed you miss out on the sights, sounds and smells of the environment. But, if you happen to be with someone who is afraid of heights, this enclosure may work help resolve any concerns.

“Fun and great view”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The view was good, fun ride, took it as part of a package. Small line up to get in. No negative comments. Would recommend it.

“I am scared to death of ferris wheels but not this one.”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

You sit in a fully enclosed gondola and each has it's own air conditioning unit. The ride is clean and the attendants keep things moving along at a nice pace.
It was not busy so we went around 5 times.
We got a parking ticket 4 minutes before returning to our vehicle. We did not know if you touch the ticket kiosk that it will light up so you can read it. We should have looked further into parking areas. I have physical limitations so a long hike was not good for us.
Also we encountered several homeless people looking for cash. They had very well worn signs and this was not a welcoming thing to the area.
Lots of neon in the shopping area and we had fun looking at those on our way back to the car. It was fairly late evening so there were no crowds. We on our way home from Niagara on the Lake.

“ok”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

This was not worth the money, goes slow, you can see all on Skylon tower or room view. Not worth 18.00
