A meal with a view awaits at Skylon Tower, featuring an observation deck and a revolving restaurant overlooking Niagara Falls. Located on the Canadian side of the falls, the 160 m (520 ft) tower features three external elevators that can whisk you to the top in just under a minute. The views from the outdoor and indoor decks alone merit a visit, though most tourists also choose to round-off their experience with a hearty meal at the onsite restaurant. The base of the tower contains several gift shops and an amusement arcade, making this attraction a good shopping/entertainment spot for families with kids.

Skylon Tower Reviews
Thiis was an AMAZING experience!!! We didn't have to wait on line. You just go right up with the yellow "bug" elevator to the top for spectacular views of the falls! more »
Very pretty view! Look for coupons in the free catalog. Glad we did this! Our teens enjoyed this as well. We were lucky to get some of the sunset sky too. more »
This place is great. I went there with my wife for the first time since several years and we had a good experience overall. The tower is an observation deck where can have an amazing view on the Niagara Falls. It's only cost around 15$ to climb the tower.The place is popular and you can also book a dinner in their restaurant on the top floors of the tower. I will definitely go back there next time and I recommend this place to see.
The Skylon Tower offers one of the best and most impressive views of the entire Niagara Falls region. From their observation deck and revolving dining room, you can see both the American and Canadian side of the falls with fantastic opportunities for photos. The Tower also offers a free ride in their “bubble elevator” (elevator on the outside of the building with windows) and viewing from the observation deck if you are dining in their revolving dining room. This unique dining room is unlike any other place I have ever dined, offering everyone in the space, regardless of where you are seated, to get a 360 degree panoramic view of everything surrounding the structure, including a great view of the falls. Though the menu at the revolving dining room can be a bit pricey, the service was impeccable, and the staff was incredibly kind. The great service we received made the price worth it. I highly recommend visiting the Skylon Tower when in Niagara Falls.
