Of all the cheesy boardwalk stuff surrounding the magestic falls, this was the one thing we really liked. The price was right --about $12CAD and ride lasted about 15 minutes, plenty of time to take photos and see the view.

The views from the sky wheel were spectacular and the size of the wheel made it a novelty for us. The gondolas are climate-controlled so it was a comfortable ride. We made 4 revolutions (with no stops!) which was pretty good but some might balk for budgetary purposes.

My husband and I went to ride the sky wheel around 10 pm Wednesday night. I completely forgot about the fireworks. All of a sudden we got to the top and heard a loud boom and looked to our right and there it was...fireworks over the illuminated falls!!! It was astounding! Loved it!

We purchased the Clifton Hill fun pass, and it was so worth it because you get 2 rides on the SkyWheel. We got to see the falls at night and during the day. Awesome view. Built to run rain or shine.

We did not know what to expect when we got on the SkyWheel and were pleasantly surprised at the great view and how long we were allowed to enjoy the view which happened to be at sunset! We were on the wheel for 5-6 revolutions and got some great shots of the entire Niagara Falls area. Great attraction and will... More

We went during the day. Very good view from the highest point,but after going around twice we were ready to get off. We went around 4 or 5 times and my 12 yo grandson and I felt like we had been released from prison

Ok for kids and for anyone who cant get a good look at the falls but 20 bucks for 2 adults and 4 turns around seems too expensive. I would never wait in line for this on a hot day.

This was pretty cool to do but it was so far from the Falls that the pictures turned out really blurry. Buying the Clifton Hill fun pass was the reason that we did this. It was worth the time and the walk to experience this attraction.

I went on the Niagara SkyWheel late at night. It was drizzling on and off outside, but it was still breathtaking. I love how it is open late so you can still enjoy it at night. When I went, there was not a long lineup - we waited about 15 minutes. There are different lines so that the lines move... More
