  • Great views from the top. Went with the family to explore what they have to offer. Get the package for activities. Well worth it.  more »
  • It is nice view of Niagara’s falls, though you can see it for free, by going to one of the hotels in near by.  more »
  • We went on the wheel after dark! Nice view of both falls and a decent amount of time on the wheel for the money! We recommend this excursion while you're at the falls!  more »
  • I love the falls come back every other year always walk main street and must get the maple fudge. My last trip I did the zip line, Had a blast! Fireworks were so fantastic. The Hilton had an amazing view of the falls. Canadians are very lovely people.
  • Well worth the price of admission. It provides a great view of the falls and surrounding area. Line up moved quickly and efficiently, ride lasted about 20 minutes. Allows you lots of time for photos or just to take in the view. The cabin is spacious and heated. So if you have a group of 4 to 6 people you can ride together.
  • The sky wheel is well worth taking a trip up in. The price is extremely reasonable and the view is spectacular. We got around 10 or so minutes in the wheel and went around 5 times or so. We were quite pleased and we had our own pod as well which was nice.
  • What a great way to see the Falls! The cabins were spacious and comfortable and I appreciated the climate control. The view was great and it was a fun and unique experience. The staff was also friendly and accommodating. The price was fair and there’s a coupon for $1 off per person. I’d love to go for another ride if I return to the area.
  • We enjoyed the ride and it’s not scary at all😂. The scenery is spectacular when you are in the peak. You can see the Falls with its colourful lights and the beautiful city at night. The cabin is spacious, we are 6 pax with our little one. It is not a crowded Sunday when we went so it’s so fast and convenient to get in. The staffs are accommodating too. Worth a try when you visit Niagara Falls.
