This place at first seemed like it may be a huge tourist trap. However, The food was outstanding! Delicious and hot and the menu was very diverse with many options even for those with children. The service was amazing, our waiter Dan made sure we had everything we needed and everything was to our liking. We were seated at a window seat which gave us amazing views of the city, the American and Canadian falls, and all of the surroundings. After all, it is a revolving restaurant! You don't even feel yourself moving, & You can see for miles and miles. Our children were entertained by artifacts on the wall as it turned about Niagara Falls and it's makeup, and history. We had a wonderful time! And it was a great experience our family will never forget! Very sensitive to our daughter's food allergies they made sure to make her a special meal and it was delicious! Definitely recommend!

We loved going up in the glass elevator and then walking around the outside platform. You get such a wonderful view of the whole area. And then inside, if you walk around again, there are very informative plaques telling you what you are seeing and also some history of the area. We did not buy the "green screen" photos they tried to sell us at the end. We did not eat at the restaurant as the reviews were not good.

To get the most of this awesome view then you have to buy the Day/night pass which allows you to go up the tower twice in one day.
Go in daylight for amazing views of the Canadian falls and American Falls.Superb photo location.
Go up again after dark for even more stunning shots you will never forget.
Worth every buck when you do it this way.
It may seem a lot at the time but hey... it is one of those things that you will probably do only once in your life ! (Although I did do it 30 years ago in the daylight and wished I had done the night time too ...so now mission accomplished!)

The view is nice. At the entrance they take a picture of you. After that you can see the picture that has been take at the desk. I didn't know that I couldn't take a pic of the screen with my smartphone. I took one to ask my friend via wattsap which pic to choose as we can only choose 2 of them. The seller, an indian guy at the desk was very rude. Instead of telling me that it's not allowed was accusing me of taking a pic and also that I had to pay for it. He kept on insisting
I felt so bad like I stoll something. I don't mind paying a pic' but the way he talked to me was unacceptable. I had to show him that the picture was deleted from my phone. Very poor customer service. Next time don't talk to customer like that. You really need a training on the quality if customer service.

Our tour bus driver said that was the best way to see the falls, so we purchased tickets and went up there. It's really not worth it to buy separate tickets to go up the Skylon Tower. The best way to see and feel the falls is when you get by the falls. If it is part of your tour go ahead, but if you have to pay a separate fee to go up the Skylon Tower don't waste your time.

We started our Niagara Falls experience at the skylon tower and have no regrets. It was amazing to see all 3 falls from above and reading what we are seeing from the observatory tower.

Tips:
1. The entry fee is worth it. If on the fence, include this experience.
2. Park in the parking lot to the left of the building (it’s slightly cheaper). You can leave your car there as the falls are a 5 minutes walk.
3. Walk to the falls by taking a loop from one end of the falls to the other and get to the parking lot via stairs from the park next to the Skylon tower.

We went with another couple that had small children. The only thing available was the observation deck and a very tiny gift shop. Most doors on the observation deck were closed and it was very confusing for people trying to find how to get inside. The view was good of the falls but it was very pricey just for that.

My fiance and myself at at the buffet here so we got included admission to the observation deck. Once you arrive at the observation deck there are 360 degree views all inside. If you wish you can go outside to get additional pictures. The day we went it was very windy and rainy. There is only a chain link fence around the outside so you can get unobstructed photos. That made for some great photos of the falls. For the price I would recommend going to the observation deck.

We visited as part of an organised tour and our tickets were included in our tour, however there was no line for tickets when we visited. The tower was our first stop around 10 am, there was no line for the elevator and we got straight into the lift. When we got to the top there were few people which was a pleasant surprise.

When we visited there was a little low cloud due to rain but the views were still fantastic. I'd recommend a visit here for the 360 views available of Niagra.

We loved the Skylon tower. I’ve always been afraid of heights so needless to say going up there was an accomplishment. It was so worth it!! I’m so glad I did it. Our friends had already done it a few times so they passed but it was our first time and I’d definitely do it again. The staff seemed pretty friendly. We didn’t have to wait long to get on the elevator either which was good. The only thing I didn’t like was how many people they cram in the elevator at once to go up. We got a great spot at the front so we could look out at everything but had we gotten stuck in the back I wouldn’t have been happy. Especially on our first time ever going up. Bonus however was that on our way back down we were the only ones in the elevator so we had more freedom to really take it in. Up on the observation deck it was great! Outside and inside. You could see soo much. Even the CN tower in Toronto. I’d say if you’ve never done it before and are in Niagara Falls you’d be silly not to try this. :)

This is a good extra, but not a must do, unless you are dining up top. It is expensive otherwise. Great for photos
