  • The enclosed cab really takes the thrill level down, but the views from the top have to be some of the best in Niagara Falls! It’s a little pricey, but we still did it again after doing it ten years a...  more »

  • Beautiful view of Niagara Falls while on this ride. Loved the view of the mini golf park beside the Skywheel. Each pod can hold up to 6 persons so perfect for a small family to ride together. The ride is not fast, therefore there's time to take pics both inside and out. You can see landmarks such as the hotels, casinos, the many stores on Clifton Hill😁😁(my fave) etc, etc. Quiet and very enjoyable 😀 we go there every time we're in Niagara
  • I went to Niagara Falls as a birthday weekend trip. I had an amazing time and one of my favourite things that I got to experience was the Niagara SkyWheel. I went at night and it was a beautiful view of the falls both American and Canadian. The pods that you sit in are heated and very comfortable and the ride was longer than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. The cost to ride was reasonable and I would recommend the SkyWheel for any visitor to Niagara Falls.
