Capture bird’s-eye views of Niagara Falls aboard the Niagara SkyWheel, Canada’s largest observation wheel. The 175-foot-high (53-meter) giant Ferris wheel offers showstopping views of Niagara River, Niagara Parks and Clifton Hill. Inside a climate-controlled gondola, you can snap photos of the sights as a recording explains what you see during the 8- to 12-minute ride. This budget-friendly Niagara Falls attraction is available year-round, day and night, rain or shine.
Head to the entertainment promenade of Clifton Hill, where you'll find the Niagara SkyWheel rising 175 feet (53 meters) high, making it Canada’s largest observation wheel. Step inside an enclosed gondola for a ride that lasts two revolutions, or about 10 minutes. You won't have to worry about getting too hot or cold in the climate-controlled cabin, just sit back and take in a 360-degree view of landmarks such as Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, the Niagara River and Niagara Parks. A recording tells you what's below, helping you get your bearings as you look out at both the American and Canadian sides of the falls. For another perspective, ride the Niagara SkyWheel at night as the Clifton Hill promenade sparkles with lights.
