Fun and an amazing view

Go when the lights are on the Falls in the evening. It's so pretty! It's fairly expensive but so are most things on Clifton Hill. It's a nice treat.

Depending upon the hotel you stay at, check with the front desk or concierge (sp) to see if they have free passes. The Sheraton gave us two 48 hr passes. Runs pretty much on time. Helped a lot.

Well worth the cost. Three times around. Great off season when you have the pod all to yourself. An interesting perspective on the area

I didn't mind the queue, I didn't mind the cost, I just wanted to ride the Ferris wheel of Niagara Falls. I came at night when all the city lights are sparkling with gorgeous colors. The kids enjoyed the view of Dinosaur's park next to the Ferris wheel and I enjoyed the view of the waterfalls at night.

Cool ride, great views of Niagara Falls, the town, the US side, and of course the falls. Well done, calm ride and had plenty of time to look around!

Was pleasantly surprised by the nice vistas. Chances to take decent photos and that fact that it did at least 3 revolutions.

The Skywheel is part of the revamped Clifton Hill amusement area. Boy have they made some positive changes along this steep road! This huge Ferris wheel might not be big enough to set records but it is way bigger than any wheel you would go on at most amusement parks. The view from the top is great and the drop... More

This attraction is the perfect way to get magnificent views of the Falls and surrounding area. A ticket costs $12 and the wheel is open later into the night. I was there on a Friday night and it was surprisingly empty. A group of 4, and maybe more can easily fit in each car. I recommend this attraction, for young... More

I absloutely loved the view of Niagara Falls fron the Sky Wheel!! Those who know me know that I am deathly afraid of heights, but I was very comfortable on this ride. We were treated to 4 turns of the wheel instead of three since it was a slow day when we visited. The conductors of the ride were super... More
