  • We did this because we ran out of other things to do. It was a nice view. It is fairly quick. We are both afraid of heights, but we were ok. 
  • This attraction is awesome in the winter months cause there's no line and the cabins are heated. Don't hesitate to visit Niagara Falls in the winter, it's great to see this is a must visit attraction 
  • Around 10 minutes of ride time. You go around 2 and a half times I think. It's a great view though. Recommended if you are Falls side. Took my wife on it once we had a blast.

  • Great experience. Much cheaper than I expected, and wonderful views. I am as shocked as anyone when I say it was well worth it to go on the ride. The kids (6 & 4) loved it too. The glass was not super-awesome for sunset photos tho, so don't expect great shots, but if you are willing to put the camera down, its aces.
  • The line up wasn't long, but it still worked out to about a 15 minute wait. The staff were friendly if not a bit quiet. The ride itself was nice, but short. It advertises 3 rotations, it was more like 2 + loading. I found the price a bit steep for what you get out of it, but it did offer a very nice view.
  • Very comfortable cabins. Went here with my mom and the views were gorgeous! The staff were friendly and professional. The lines weren't long and the price was not that expensive - definitely a nice experience!
  • You get a nice view, it's not meant to be a thrill ride. I may be difficult to impress, but it really wasn't all that exciting. It moves really slowly so you have more time on the ride (this is good). Still somewhat of a classic attraction for Clifton Hill and it's not unaffordable, especially with the pass. I'd imagine it'd be good for kids.
  • Even though 12 dollars gets you about three turns around the wheel, the views are amazing. I highly recommend to go at night, the lights are astounding.
