When in St John if you really want to experience the Reversing Falls, you must go at low tide, neap and high tide. The ideal thing to do is grab a table, get some food and a beverage and enjoy the view. You can go...More

The falls and the skywalk are way over rated. You can see as much rom the public bridge for free as you could from paying to use the skywalk.More

Thank You for your review. The Skywalk itself is only part of the attraction. There is also a 12 minute film explaining how the Reversing Falls works and why it is named as such. There is also a meteorite that you can actually touch with...More

I would recommend it if you are staying in Saint John for more than one day, you get a two day ticket to see the rapids going different ways. Watch the video too, it`s not boring. There is an elevator and so it is totally...More

So the Skywalk provides a great view which may seem a little steep for $15. Having said this, I did appreciate the movie included which explained the phenomenon and had 3D drawings to understand what occurs here. The movie gives a better appreciation of the...More

It cost about 70 bucks to go up for my family of 4. There is nothing up there you can't see from other vantage points nearby for free. The movie is mediocre. They serve tiny muffins and iced tea perhaps to justify the price. It...More

Worth the $15 as you can go back as many times as you like in 48hrs. You get to watch a little movie that explains the tides. Great views.
