Skylon Tower Tours

star-5
197 Reviews
Skylon Tower
Perched on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, the lofty Skylon Tower is famous for its bird’s-eye views. Boasting a panoramic observation platform, ambient dining, movies, shopping, and activities for the whole family, this 775-foot (236-meter) tower offers an entire day’s worth of entertainment. 

The Basics
Begin your experience with a ride in one of the tower’s glass elevators, and speed up to the outer observation deck to take in the views. Head inside to dine in style at the upscale Revolving Dining Room restaurant or grab a bite at the family-friendly Summit Suite Buffet dining room. You can also catch the Legends of Niagara Falls 4D movie, peruse the shopping concourse, or stop by the Family Fun Center for games, rides, and fast food. Combine your visit with a ride on the famed Maid of the Mist boat to get up close and personal with the thundering Niagara Falls, or take a half-day tour to also see attractions such as the Floral Clock, Whirlpool Rapids, and Goat Island. For a special treat, take a helicopter tour of Niagara Falls that includes lunch at Skylon Tower afterwards.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring a camera to capture Skylon Tower’s stunning views.
  • If you plan to visit from the US, you’ll need your passport to cross the US–Canada border.
  • The observation deck is free for diners at both of the tower's restaurants.
  • Reserve your restaurant table ahead of time to ensure that space is available.
  • The open-air observation deck is not wheelchair accessible; discounted tickets are available for wheelchair and scooter users.

How to Get There
Skylon Tower is located on Robinson Street, roughly two minutes by road from the city center of Niagara Falls, Ontario. Bus transportation is available in the city. The nearest airport is Buffalo Niagara International Airport, 45 minutes away by road. 

When to Get There
Because Skylon Tower is an indoor attraction, it’s a popular place to visit at any time of year. Summer is busiest time to visit; make sure to book in advance if you plan to visit in June, July, or August. Nighttime visitors can see Niagara Falls illuminated with colored lights, while those who arrive on summer nights can see fireworks shows light up the sky several times per week. 

Views from the Skylon Tower Observation Deck
The Skylon Tower observation deck offers a panoramic view of both Canada and the US. Visitors can gaze out over mighty Niagara Falls, the Great Gorge, Niagara’s wine country, Toronto, and Buffalo, New York. City skylines, thundering waterfalls, and country vistas await those who ride to the top.
