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.

  • A Must attraction when you're in Niagara Falls. Air Conditioned and Heated cars with great views all around at night and during the day. The cars have relaxing music and informative facts spoken out loud which can be turned off. Get the Day Pass ONLINE and access to all attractions at a fraction of the price, well worth it! and you get to go on this sky wheel TWICE anytime in a year. The lines were long, but moved extremely quickly.
  • Really recommend going on this ride. It’s not really scary, nor does it move fast. Great for people who don’t like roller coasters. It brings you up and you’re able to see the whole city from the top. Very nice view! Recommended to ride the SkyWheel at night. You can see all the city lights and the waterfall is lit at night too.
  • A must-see attraction for any tourist in Niagara Falls. Offers spectacular views of the Falls and Skylon Tower and is a cheap option (C$13). The cabs are air conditioned in the summer and warm in the winter so you're not exposed to the freezing cold air. We went to this attraction at night to see the Falls lit up, but the view is breathtaking day or night.
  • Amazing ride ever. It’s also air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. You get these beautiful views of the falls and of the Ontario area. It’s perfect for families and couples too. This was my first time going on it and I don’t regret riding it. I’ll always make sure to ride it whenever we stop by in Ontario.
  • You get a great view of the falls but it is kind of pricey. If it’s your first time at the falls and want to get the full experience definitely check this out at night, you’ll get some amazing pictures. If you’ve been to the falls often you might want to skip out on this one. But if you love ferris wheels and heights then check it out!
