Its a natural wonder of the world. Dine in fine elegance or just have a snack. See a 360* view from the top . Fun for young and old. A must see climb to the top.

My wife & I took our 11 year old grandson up the Skylon Tower, I had prebooked our tickets online before leaving the UK. On arrival we found the staff very helpful & informative including the lift operative with her sense of humour. Armed with camera & wide lenses many images were taken. Would be well worth a visit at... More

This was a spur of the moment adventure. The more we saw the outside elevator the more we wanted to try it. It was quick and amazing. The views were outstanding!!! Nobody rushed us and we were able to stay as long as we wanted. If you want to eat that their revolving dining room make reservations well in advance.... More

This tower offers great views of the falls and is excellent for photos. You can spend as much time as you want here. Elevators take you to the observation deck and have glass windows so you can see the falls from the elevator. There is a fence around the outer area but you can fit camera through easily for photos.... More

After having visited the Space Needle in Seattle I thought we would be in for the same treat at the Skylon Tower. I was wrong. We decided to go in the early evening to view the falls lit up at night from the top of the tower. The top of the space needle is busy with a small cafe for... More

Going to the observation deck of the Skylon Tower was worth the money even though it is a bit run-down. The views from the top of both falls and the surrounding area were amazing. We went up a sunset and were rewarded with a spectacular view.

Brunch buffet was average. I think we paid mostly for the view. Unfortunately, when we got to the top I realized that I am afraid of heights and felt a little woozy! Other than that it was a great way to see the falls from 750 above sea level.

I expected this to be a bit tacky. How wrong was I. The food was excellent, the waiters we're extremely helpful, and it gave us another amazing perspective of the incredible Niagara Falls.

Nice view but very cold very windy- did not spend much time there- staff okay. Seemed sort of dated there.

A revolving restaurant at the top of a tower! Great gimmick, the area below the tower is very tired with lots of out of date amusements, but the food was good, €200 dollars for a steak and beers, but it was a once in a holiday blow-out.
