“awesome ride, a little spooky first few times around”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

It goes faster than you think but is lots of fun and awesome views.
Way more value for the money than most of the cheesy stuff at the falls.

“Niagra Skywheel at Night”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Visited the Skywheel at night - views amazing with the falls lit up, very pretty. Pods can hold 4 -6 people. Best time to around 10pm after fireworks, as the queue was not that long - highly recommend

Reviewed July 30, 2014

Bought the Clifton Hill fun pass and this ride was included and was fun to see and ride....but glad that I received a discount to ride it. Note: with the card you get Skywheel
movieland wax museum, Ghost Blasters Dark Ride, XD Theater, Dinosaur adventure golf OR Wizards golf.

“Typical Ride at the Falls”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

The Skywheel does provide a good view of the falls at any time of day. The cabin holds about 8 people and it is possible that you will be grouped with others while taking the ride. The speed of the wheel is at a good pace, but does not distract from the ability to see everything well. Typically, you will get about 4 rotations, and the ride will be over. The cabins are enclosed and are air conditioned. The windows of the cabins are scratched, which prevents getting clear pictures while on the ride.

“Great view and worth the price”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

I took my 4 year old daughter on this as she wanted to go and she loved it. We went at night when it was dark and could see both falls lit up. We have a coupon and it was less than $20 for both of us and definitely worth the money. It is a must try.
