Offering priceless views of the famous falls, Niagara SkyWheel ranks among the world's largest observation wheels. The 53 m (175 ft) Ferris wheel provides bird's-eye views of the surrounding area from a climate-controlled gondola, ensuring a comfortable ride and plenty of chances to snap images of the iconic natural attraction. 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.

  • Many giant wheels have a set number of times it goes around. Can usually range around three to 5 times. Because of how popular this attraction is, it goes around only twice when in full motion. The th...  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.
  • A fun family activity with great views. A bit pricey but that's the area. Enjoy the slow revolutions and the views.
  • Get nice pics from the top. AC in cabins which is nice in summer time. You get 3-4 passes around.
