Skylon Tower, Niagara Falls

Observation Deck · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Definitely a great view of the Falls, but very windy. It's also very confusing as they only had one door to go outside from and a different one to come back in. However, the one to come back in was...  more »
  • We decided to spend our one-year anniversary at Skylon Tower, and we were not disappointed. All expected covid protocols were in place, including all servers wearing masks (many wearing gloves...  more »
  • After visiting the falls, we figured we had to stop at the Skylon Tower. The elevator ride was so cool with great views of the falls. At the top it wasn’t super busy which is nice, and there is a lot....  more »
  • Skylon Tower is ranked #11 out of 13 things to do in Niagara Falls. See many of my pictures I took while in the tower and more. If you heading to the falls I recommend to visit the Canada side only for which you will have much to do. Especially take awesome photos for memorable chapters. One of the locations to visit would be the Skylon Tower, where the tower spins slowly allowing you to see beautiful Niagara Falls. Yes, have your camera ready with burst mode. Surprisingly, the food and service were top notch too. Easy 5-star grab. Why don’t we have this set up in NYC?
  • Skylon Tower, It is the observer tower of Niagara falls from the Canadian side. When I was in Niagara Falls, besides going to see its own beauty, I also took a tour of Niagara Falls, one of the programs was seeing Niagara from the top of the tower. A beautiful view of Niagara Falls can be seen from there and I am satisfied watching all that. According to many people actually witnessing Niagara Falls will be far more beautiful at night from the Canadian side when compared to the American side. But unfortunately, I do not have multiple entries to Canada, and only a single entry can be done so I have not had the opportunity for it. After watching the view from this tower, I continued my tour with lunch and visited several other objects.
  • A must visit in Niagara. The view from the tower of Niagara is absolutely amazing. There are many ticket types available. We took the one time visit but a ticket which allows both day time and night time visits (two entries) is highly recommended as Niagara lit up with lights is also truly beautiful. Single entry adult ticket is CAD 13. A lift with glass windows takes you to the top and the view is absolutely amazing. You can take picture from both inside and after stepping outside. If stepping outside to take better photos please be careful as ice can make the floor extremely slippery. Tale extra care.
  • My company Christmas Party was held in Niagara Falls and our evening dinner was here at the Skylon Tower. They were able to accommodate our large group of 26 seamlessly. Service was excellent and the anticipated out needs. The food was incredible and my steak was cooked accordingly. The crime brûlée was the perfect ending to my meal. The live piano music, the atmosphere, the lighting... it was such a nice way to celebrate our company’s Christmas together. My only regret was not going to the observation deck! I will be back.m for that. The views from our table during dinner were beautiful especially at night!
  • I went went with my husband and brother to the Buffet on New Years eve. Employees were helpful but it wasn't clear from the beginning that you need to check in at the counter even if you have a voucher. It also wasn't clear which floor we needed to go to to get to the buffet. The servers were good and the food was fine (not truly amazing, not a very large selection) and we ended up paying about $70 per person (Canadian, drinks not included) for the Buffet, even though we saw a sign saying the Buffet was only $40. I probably wouldn't go again to be honest
