Clifton Hill is such a fun area with the SkyWheel nestled right in the middle. There are 6 lines that board the wheel, so it keeps traffic moving, but only 4 were open on the night we visited which was adequate. We hopped on around 8:50 and the ride was 12-15 minutes. It's slow turning and allow you to grab... More

You are close to the Falls so you get some great views of the Canadian and American Falls. I highly recommend going at night when everything is lit up - it is quite beautiful. If you are scared of heights I still recommend if you can suck it up and do it. The fact that it is enclosed does help... More

Lines can be a bit long but they push you through fairly quickly, loading 6 baskets at once, so don't be fooled by the masses. The views are fantastic, you can see the falls of course, as well as many businesses. Great way to check out what's close by for tourism. Private cubes have AC and heat so you are... More

We did the Sky Wheel again. The view from the Sky Wheel is good but not extra-ordinary. I would not rate this as one of the top ten activities to do in Niagara Falls. I trust many people just sit on the Sky Wheel to have some fun which explains why we did this the second time. Munir D.

To start the tour of Niagara falls, this could be the first step. It provides an arial view of the falls before taking a ferry into the heart of the falls..!!!

The Skywheel had been closed for several months for renovation so we were quite pleased that the ride opened a day earlier than planned. It was very windy the day we rode it. The gondola car swayed a lot and made a nerve wrenching screeching sound. The windows on the gondola were not clean so the view was not spectacular(would... More

Hi Deb, We are sorry to hear of your displeasure with the Niagara SkyWheel. We can assure you that in high winds, you will be safe, but we understand your concerns regarding this. Unfortunately, the pods will sway if the winds are gusty enough, especially with the height. As for the windows being dirty I have advised our SkyWheel operators... More

Deluxe ferris wheel with air conditioning and music inside. Good experience. Very high. It can seat 8 people. Really enjoyed it.

They advertise as you getting the best view of the area, they lie. You get a better view from the skylon tower. The windows on my pod were dirty so getting a good picture wasn't going to happen. I'm not a fan of heights but I did this anyway and would have been ok but when it came time to... More

This is just one of those attractions that you have to do. You can either buy the Clifton hill pass or a single admission either way it's a must. I recommend going at nighttime just because I love seeing the strip all lit up & the falls all different colors.
