Have you ever want to soar above the sky, but are a little too scared to hop out of a plane or be strapped into a helicopter ride? Not to worry than, as Niagara Falls has one of the very best Skywheel’s you’ll ever find in Canada. The Niagara Skywheel is located on Clifton Hill, thus the view you get when you’re at the very top is truly something out of a magazine. The wheel itself soars 175 feet up into the sky, so you are certainly getting your money’s worth (just $9.99 for adults & $6.99 for kids) when you venture on up into the sky in a luxurious gondola.

The beauty of this adventure is that the whole way up and over the Skywheel you are sitting in the lap of luxury. With fully enclosed, heated and air-conditioned gondolas you can ride up to the top of the sky any day or night of the year. The most magical time to venture on up on this 8-12 minute ride is whatever time you please as the sight you’ll see either day or night are pretty perfect. Many locals prefer the night rides as Niagara Falls at night is certainly a sight to see. So if you’re wondering just how your going to check out the bird’s eye view of Niagara Falls without hopping out of an airplane then hop on this ride of a lifetime to see picturesque views of Niagara Falls, The Niagara River, Clifton Hill and the beautiful Parks of Niagara.
