  • Address: 4946 Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
  • Admission: Varies
Opened in 2006, this towering Ferris wheel carries passengers up to a height of 175 feet (53 meters), far above the hubbub and neon lights of bustling Clifton Hill. From the enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas, passengers can see for miles in every direction and admire the grandeur of Horseshoe and American falls.
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.
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring your camera to take photos of Niagara Falls.
  • Each gondola can accommodate six to eight people.
  • The ride lasts for about 10 minutes.
  • The SkyWheel gondolas are equipped with heating and air conditioning.
  • Two gondolas in the Niagara SkyWheel are accessible to wheelchair users via a portable ramp.
How to Get There
The Niagara SkyWheel is located at the southern section of Clifton Hill, on the Ontario side of the falls. To get there, ride the WEGO red, blue, or green line buses to the Clifton Hill/Hornblower Niagara Cruises stop. Drivers can park at the Clifton Hill Niagara Falls parking lot.
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.
