Offering priceless views of the famous falls, Niagara SkyWheel ranks among the world's largest observation wheels. The 53 m (175 ft) Ferris wheel provides bird's-eye views of the surrounding area from a climate-controlled gondola, ensuring a comfortable ride and plenty of chances to snap images of the iconic natural attraction. The ride lasts two revolutions (approximately ten minutes), while a recording explains each of the sights as they come into view. For another perspective on the famous landscape, ride the wheel at night. Check the website for discounts, combo tickets, and hours of operation.

I love the falls come back every other year always walk main street and must get the maple fudge. My last trip I did the zip line, Had a blast! Fireworks were so fantastic. The Hilton had an amazing view of the falls. Canadians are very lovely people.
Well worth the price of admission. It provides a great view of the falls and surrounding area. Line up moved quickly and efficiently, ride lasted about 20 minutes. Allows you lots of time for photos or just to take in the view. The cabin is spacious and heated. So if you have a group of 4 to 6 people you can ride together.
