  • My husband and I took our 15 yr daughter on the wheel. It wasn't as good as I wanted it to be. It was 8$ Canadian each, you go around a few times. The glass was dirty so it was difficult to get good p...  more »

  • What an amazing experience. The line up was long as pretty much anywhere in Niagara Falls in the summer but it was totally worth it. Inside the wheel, you could choose to listen to music or a guided educational track that had someone sharing facts about the falls. I loved that. I also think you could customize the lighting inside if I’m not mistaken. It was a little scary going up so high but the view was incredible and I highly recommend it. You get your money’s worth with this experience.
  • A great method of viewing the Niagara Falls area on the Canadian side. You will be able to see the majority of the hotels, restaurants, and other attractions the city has to offer. The wheel itself is not too tall but a great height. There are three points of entry and exit on and off of the wheel itself. Usually they allow 4 complete rotations which is about 8 minutes in duration. Pricing I believe was almost $20 per person. I would recommend this attraction.
  • A must see when in the falls. Very nice view and if you're lucky and it's not busy you will get a couple extra rotations. Perfect for a date, go with friends or family. Get the Clifton Hill fun pass and you can see it once during the day and once at night. Really cool at night.
  • Wend in the morning hours, there was no line up and the ride was amazing. You can see beautiful views of Niagara Falls as well as the mini golf park at the bottom full of dinosaurs that looks super cool. Saw long line ups at the evening when was walking by.
  • We went at night and it was a wonderful experience! We wanted some pictures during the day and it had rained earlier in the day and the glass had raindrops. We asked the attendant nicely if he'd wipe off the glass and he said "get off". Very rude.
