Skylon Tower, Niagara Falls

(3.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • ナイアガラを滝の近くで迫力を感じるのも一つかもしれませんが、あまりにも大きいので全体像を把握するために、スカイロンタワーもお勧めします。 アメリカ滝・カナダ滝・滝つぼ・アメリカ(ニューヨーク州・バッファロー)が一望できます。ここで、カナダ(ナイアガラ)の自然の広大さが見えてきますね。 ちょっと、古臭い建物とエレベーターですが登ってしまえば気にはなりません。 展望台の一階下にレストラン(ビュッフェ)...  more »

  • El lugar tiene muy buena ubicación si estas buscando para una buena vista a toda la ciudad este es el lugar,me parece que no tiene un buen mantenimiento y después que subes no hay más nada de hacer .

  • Awesome view from the observation deck. Good enough price if you only want to go to the top and enjoy. Buffet lunch and dinner also available at lower floors, along with a revolving dining room that serve pretty good food. The best part is you get to go to the observation deck with a reservation at either. The view from the dining rooms are much better anyway with glass windows instead of barbed wires.
  • Excellent service and food on the summit suite at a bargain price, which also includes the observation floor. However there are so many Chinese tourists who just push and barge in without any consideration and make the whole experience a bit too uncomfortable. I got pushed out of my viewing standup area twice...! But other than that the food was good.
  • I have never been, and went for my birthday. I truly didn't know what to expect but was very happily and pleasantly blown away. The wait staff were quick efficient, non intrusive and exceptionally polite. We both ordered the steaks and got them exactly as we had asked then to be cooked..., which was utter and absolute perfection. The steak dinner beat the Keg's butt by a long shot. We even had a dessert to share and left completely satisfied. What an experience for a bucket list item :):):) We will be back :)
  • Perhaps we came on a good day, but nonetheless our experience was positive. The lunch buffet, while limited in variety, was filling and the taste was typical buffet quality. The prime rib was juicy, moist and flavorful. We were a bit disappointed we couldn't sit by a window, but access to the observation deck makes up for it. Only coffee, tea and water are included in the buffet price which was fine since it was 90°F+ outside and we needed the water. I would say this is a good spot if it's your first visit to Niagara as it certainly added to our visit, but I wouldn't make it an annual stop.
  • The views are very impressive! Get your camera and go up there! Be sure to grab one of the coupons you find everywhere. The tower itself is quite old, most of the shops inside where closed. Was not crowded (end of September on a Tuesday afternoon)
