At Niagara SkyWheel, you’ll get a bird’s-eye-view of Niagara Falls as you soar 53 meters (175 feet) high in the air in the largest observation wheel in Canada. It’s most popular to ride the Niagara Skywheel around dusk, when Niagara Falls gets lit up in the colors of the rainbow for the famous Falls Illumination show. At night, you’ll also see Clifton Hills and the city skyline lights.

On the 12- to 15-minute ride, you’ll get four or more rotations in the Ferris wheel, and groups and families get to ride in their own gondola. A popular destination for taking photos of Niagara Falls from a new angle, you can see for miles in every direction, and you’ll be able to capture both Horseshoe and American Falls in one shot. Time your trip for 10 p.m., and you may also get to see the iconic fireworks over the falls from your carriage.

Opened in 2006, the SkyWheel is in the heart of Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls' main entertainment district for vacationing families.
