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.

Good precautions in place, distancing, and cleaning of each pod before a new customer gets on. I just had hoped the wheel would go around 2-3 full turns but it was 1, not including when you wait for people to get on other pods. Still would go on again!!

The staff were friendly, the ride was nice and smooth and the view was amazing. I went on a slow morning-afternoon and there was no line just a few of us and so we went around 2 extra times more so that was very nice. This iconic ride is a must do for your visit to the Niagara Falls :)

This was a well priced attraction for what it is. It is a very big ferris wheel that does offer a great, but distant, view of the Falls and the rest of the Canadian side attractions. A good place to chill out for a few minutes if you've been going all day.

Seeing the Falls all lit up from such a height was great!! So worth it! Only a 20 min wait in summer and very safe.

Unlike similar ones this wheel gives several rotations. A good way to get your bearings and see where you want to go next. Very enjoyable. Book in advance and go earlier in day to avoid queues.

A great way to relax after walking through everything - features great views of everywhere you've been (or going) from a comfortable, enclosed gondola. Highly recommend!

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.

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.
