4946 Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

The Basics

One of the largest observation wheels in Canada, the Niagara SkyWheel is perfectly placed for those who want to see the magnificent Niagara Falls from a whole new angle. Visitors can prepurchase an admission ticket for the SkyWheel and take the ride at a time of their choosing.

Alternatively, opt for a sightseeing pass that includes not only a ride on the SkyWheel but also access to five other Clifton Hill attractions, including a miniature golf course, Movieland Wax Museum of the Stars, and other rides and interactive experiences. Travelers who take part in organized Niagara Falls day trips from Toronto or Brampton may opt to ride the SkyWheel during free time on the tour.

We loved it!
Fabulous view from the wheel! We went after dark and got to see both the american and canadian falls lit up in colours. While we both felt a little skittish on the first slow upward motion, we soon felt comfortable and could relax and enjoy the spectacular view. Gorgeous! Fantastic value. We highly recommend.

We really enjoyed this experience. We went up during the daylight hours and it was good. I think it would be great at night too. Having a pre ticket made it easy. There is no barcode on the voucher which threw me off but the ticket counter had the reservation and it went smoothly. This must be standard process. It was not crowded in October so it was easy. Not sure how it all works during the rush on the season. Liked having a ticket in advance

It is a typical ferris wheel but with a one of a kind view! We definitely recommend going twice - once during the day and once at night! What a great way to see the illuminated Falls!

When to Get There

The Niagara SkyWheel runs year-round. Wait until nightfall to see the falls illuminated. During summer, visitors can also see the Niagara Falls Fireworks from the gondolas. The fireworks start at 10pm, but lines are common at this time, so it’s worth arriving at the SkyWheel early.

Niagara Falls Viewpoints

The Niagara SkyWheel is just one of several attractions in town that offer bird’s-eye views of the falls. Visitors can also venture up to the 775-foot (236-meter) observation deck of the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls, Ontario. From here, vistas extend across the mighty falls, the Great Gorge, and the Niagara wine region. It’s also possible to take helicopter and flightseeing tours over the falls to view one of the world’s most impressive natural wonders.
