Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Ontario  /  Niagara Falls  /  Skylon Tower

Skylon Tower, Niagara Falls

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.

  • You can see the Tower shaped like a discus and Queen Victoria Park. Three floors is a part of the disc-shaped at the top of the observation deck is at the top. Have a go a 360 ° observation deck around the overlook to the city of Niagara falls from Niagara falls. It is recommended if you don't ride in a helicopter overlooking Niagara falls from the Skylon Tower.

  • Easy reservations for the rotating restaurant. The process to get up to the top is seamless. Getting seated and served went well also, not a long wait. Surprisingly the food was really great. Normally when I dine at tourist attraction restaurants I expect mediocre or even less quality. Not so here. The view of the Falls and the City front the restaurant is absolutely amazing. The fireworks over the Falls was such an added bonus if you time it right and get the right table:)
  • I’ve been wanting to come to the Skylon in Niagara Falls for years. From the reviews/ website description I was expecting a more intimate setting. The view is amazing, however the experience is not worth it. We made reservations at 8:30. By the time we were “checked in” took the elevator up, and were seated it was exactly 9pm. You can tell they cram as many people as they can in the dining area (with all entrees over 50$ a piece I don’t blame the business side of this). The table beside us was practically sitting on top of us. The food was nothing to rave about. The service was slim to none. Needs better management and perhaps a more advanced menu to match the price.
  • Would of given it a higher rate. The ride up & the view was beautiful. Gave low score because we did the buffet and they had nothing on it for the price. They had shrimp cocktail and it was warm same with a lot of the food. Not much of a selection. Had to try and flag someone down to get our drinks and good luck getting refills. I highly recommend doing the view part.
  • Amazing, architectural masterpiece, incredible tower. Breathtaking views of majestic nature wonder Canadian and American falls that could be seen from the observation deck and the restaurant. Splendid! Very pleasant and enjoyable dining while restaurant is spinning. Excellent, flavourful food, mouthwatering desserts that look like artwork. Friendly service, spectacular views, beautiful time way up in the sky while enjoying great meal and lush cocktail. Nice atmosphere and ambiance, lovely and memorable. If you are there at sunset it’s simply Devine❤️🇨🇦❤️
  • The Skylon Tower was definitely something you need to experience at least once. We had reservations for the buffet at 9:30 and we ended up waiting a little longer for a window seat which was completely worth it! The food was mediocre at best. The roast, vegetables and the banana cream pie was good but I didn’t care for any of the other food. Although, while eating dinner, we got to see the 10 o’clock fireworks and that was the most wonderful part! It was so gorgeous. After dinner, we headed up to the highest floor to see the views and it was beautiful, you could see the falls and the city so perfectly, I definitely reccomend it!
