Came here because it was part of the hop-on hop-off tour. This is basically an overhang perched atop a very expensive restaurant that allows you to look at he reversing falls through 3 glass floor panels. The idea is decent but it is nothing special. It was cool to experience but if I had to do it again I would not waste the money. This is an attraction that cost way more than it is close to being worth.

Took friends from the West Coast, not too impressed with the $15/head charge. Would make far more sense to Have the admission included in the meal, would benifit both the restaurant and the attraction, But the c City is broke so guess they won't listen

I feel as though it was one of the major highlights we were looking forward to during our 1 day (only a few short hours) visiting here. We were docked for only a short time with our cruise ship, but accessed this stop via the Pink bus hop on/hop off. We purchased admission, but I felt as though the price paid was not worth the little amount of time we spent here. The short video and walk-out platform were neat and engaging, but no more than an hour is needed at this attraction. The price should be less, or there should be something else included with the price they are charging to see the view from the Skywalk.

You can see the reversing rapids/falls from many vantage points in the vicinity so there is absolutely no point in paying the stupidly high prices to stand on this platform. It was on our list of places to visit but we backed off when we saw what was on offer.

Nice view of the reversing falls but is just a small platform with a couple glass panels...hardly a skywalk of any kind. They charge you 7 dollars each person.. takes less than half an hour including the 20 minute video, same view from the parking lot or bridge.. not worth it!

A $10 CAD ticket get you all day access to the skywalk. If you are in Saint John for the day its worth it. You can see the power of the tide change. There is a short educational movie....fills you in on the geological and historical importance of the area.

The quality of the experience. An excellent facility with knowledgeable and friendly staff. The views are exceptional of the river, the bay and surrounding St .John.

To be honest you can see the falls from multiple viewpoints from either side of the river, that give a much better perspective than the limited options from the Skywalk.

Inside, other than the view you get a 12/13 minute video which give some basic details (all of which and more are available on the information boards on the harbour passage walk) before it becomes a promotional video for Saint John.

Hugely overpriced for what it is. As a family with two teenagers, this has been the most expensive ticket (after tax was CAD 69 for the four of us) all holiday and provided a fraction of the entertainment versus all of the rest. Yes, this place is more expensive than the Acadian Village and Kings Landing where you can easily spend several enjoyable hours.

This place is not worth (half) the cost.

You can get almost the same view without paying to enter the walkway. You will want to stop in the area if you have time while visiting Saint John, but no need to spend much time. I will admit, we were there at low tide so there wasn't the reversing falls component to watch. Between the Skywalk and the restaurant next door, there are some free stairs to walk down in you want to get close

Didn't quite know what to expect but didn't really enjoy this. I think when offering this as a tour they need to get you there when something is actually happening. When we visited it was just a river and it could have been anywhere in the world. We saw the film and it was only when you see that it becomes clear what goes on. We had a coach trip here and I don't think anyone on the coach thought it was worth the money or a visit. There is a shop on sight. If visiting I would try and time it right to actually see something. Sorry, I don't usually give a lukewarm review but it wasn't very good.
