  • It's nice to see the Falls from the SkyWheel. It takes about 10 minutes for about 14 dollars to go on the Wheel, which I thought was expensive. But it's a nice experience. 
  • We rode at night while the Falls were lit up. Very beautiful view of the Falls and all the city lights. 
  • My wife and I brought our daughter and grandsons down for a visit. Part of the package we bought included the SkyWheel so we decided to do that first to get a lay of the land. You get several revoluti...  read more »
  • I don't get why any one is giving this a positive review. The glass in our car was filthy. Seats are stained with God knows what... There was water dripping from the button panel into our car. To top it off the view sucked. You get a much better view from skylon tower and you can stay there as long as you like. My 12 year old son said it was anti-climatic. There's a coupon in a lot of magazines should you still decide to go. They do not charge TFT which is nice.
  • I was enjoying an absolutely stunning view of the falls and other nearby landmarks while riding your crazy train Ferris wheel. My 3 guests and I were enjoying the falls view and the cool rainbow covering the "vape" steam in the falls. Did you know there's always a rainbow over the falls? This is because of water reflecting on the falls creating the light and the rainbow, or something like that, I fell asleep during grade 10 physics class. Anyway. While trying to view this fast falling liquid, in the corner of my eye I witnessed 2 women in the other ferris/cart or whatever it's called, making out, like full out making out!!! Tongue and all!!!! Like there's nothing wrong with that but I was uncomfortable with my guests witnessing that as it is a public place and I do not want to see people making out as I am a lonely single young man with no woman, it made me exuberantly jealous!!! Anyway besides that the $54.76 price was a good experience. It went through 3 rotations. Tbh, I was expecting at least 16 rotations at that price but I won't complain. The elevator music was pleasing. I definitely added that tune to my workout/pump up music playlist!! I would like to suggest to go into buisness with Frankenstein haunted house, as your ride gave me the rush and excitement I was looking for at their location but was sadly disappointed with nothing but unpleasant groping from other clients, ticklish chains and cobwebs touching my fanny, and my wallet was now $34.75 lighter. I could've used that cold hard cash to buy treats at the many stores or lose it all at the casino, which is another experience I will save for another review. Overall great ride but please stop couples from giving each other the buisness in your establishment. 4 STARS:)))
  • Comfortably fits 6 or 8 ppl in their fully enclosed air conditioned cabins. The views are spectacular. Enjoyable for kids and adults alike.
  • Great experience. We were only supposed to get 3 turns but we got six instead which is great because I'm afraid of heights and it took 2 full go arounds before I was able to enjoy the view!! Cant wait to do this at night!
  • Such an amazing experience. Goes around 3 times and lines go fast. Smooth ride too and feel safe in the enclosed carts. Do this at night with LEDs galore on it and if your lucky you are going around when the fireworks are going off at the falls and have a great view.
