Observation Deck Tourist Spot
TICKETS FROM
$10
A meal with a view awaits at Skylon Tower, featuring an observation deck and a revolving restaurant overlooking Niagara Falls. Located on the Canadian side of the falls, the 160 m (520 ft) tower features three external elevators that can whisk you to the top in just under a minute. The views from the outdoor and indoor decks alone merit a visit, though most tourists also choose to round-off their experience with a hearty meal at the onsite restaurant. The base of the tower contains several gift shops and an amusement arcade, making this attraction a good shopping/entertainment spot for families with kids.

  • Had lunch here. A good buffet and a wonderful view. A good value. We were not rushed to eat and get out and it includes being able to go on the observation deck.  more »

  • The food at the summit buffet is just like that of any other buffet, only the view makes it special (and very pricey, $30 per person plus other fees & tips) but only if your lucky to sit at the window seats. I wasn't, and I had to wait 15 min because they lost my reservation. Dessert was pretty good; I mostly ate that. Elevator ride gives you a good view of the falls. The observatory has a wired fence so you can stick your camera out and get higher. Before you go on the elevator you take a few pictures which you can buy for ~$30.
  • We had an excellent all around experience. The food was excellent prepared exactly as requested. The entertainment was very good as well. We observed a tight rope walker the first time we went there, very exciting. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting an overall excellent time. We were married at Niagara Falls and ate there our wedding night. We continue to go back to the Skylon Tower every year to celebrate. Five stars for a five star place.
  • This place is just a huge tourist trap. They try absolutely everything to get you to pay them more. A huge arcade in the front and shops chock full of the same Canada gear you see in other places in the country. The place is outdated and the only thing worth going here for is the view. The restaurant is funny because they pretend to be fancy. They take pictures of you and try to make them pay you for it. They have even more gift shops at the top and only run one elevator down to build up the line and make you want to buy more things from it. If you like tourist traps go ahead and visit but keep in mind that the view is the only thing worth going here for.
  • Came for dinner with friends at 9:00 pm and everything was wonderful. The food was very good, many sea food options like crab, shrimp and fish. We were there just on time for the fireworks at 10:00 pm and the view was amazing. After the dinner we stepped out to the observation deck and enjoying the 360 view of Niagara Falls at night time. Service was on point as well.
  • Didn't eat at the restaurants here but did the ride to the top. They take some photos of your family or group before you head up and you have the option to purchase them on your way out - nice to be able to have a photo with everyone in your group. The views from the observation deck, whether you stay inside or venture outside at the top are spectacular! Best views of the Falls are from up here for sure!
