What To Expect

Step right up to the best view of Niagara Falls. At the entertainment promenade on Clifton Hill, one of the major tourist promenades in Niagara Falls, Ontario, is Canada’s largest observation wheel — the Niagara SkyWheel, towering 175 feet (53 meters) up in the air. It’s an impressive sight from a distance, but even more so if you stand directly underneath it. 
Hop inside one of the enclosed cabins, safe and secure for your ride. These climate-controlled pods are cooled in the summer heat and heated in the winter cold, offering a most comfortable journey regardless of the time of year or the weather conditions.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the best view of Niagara landmarks like the Horseshoe and American Falls, Niagara River, Niagara Parks and the bright lights of Clifton Hill and the Niagara skyline. A narrated recording describes the sites below as the wheel slowly makes two full revolutions.
Enjoy the ride on this incredible Niagara Falls Ferris wheel — and the stunning view. It’s a must-see attraction when visiting Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Niagara SkyWheel

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.

Traveller Tips

If you are not afraid of heights, I would suggest taking a ride.
Only a 20 min wait in summer and very safe.
A good place to chill out for a few minutes if you've been going all day.

Don't book online whatever you do.
Linda_R, Mar 2023
I booked online when i was just down the street from the wheel not realizing that I was booking for the next day. I paid with my credit card. When I went to the wheel I was told my error. The ticket person said to contact you and get a refund. I did that twice. I haven't heard back. If I don't get my refund I am going to put it on social media and will post negative reviews anywhere I am able. Linda Reid
Canada sky wheel
Kendria_P, Mar 2023
The wheel sometimes closes for maintenance. Be sure to call to find out what time is available for you to arrive. The experience was absolutely amazing. The fuse that you get at the top exceptional and great for pictures. This ride is wheelchair accessible so it is great for families who have individuals who are wheelchair-bound so it is great for families who have individuals who are wheelchair-bound. This is definitely an attraction that you must participate in when you visit Canada Niagara Falls.
Niagara’s endless possibilities

the sky wheel is a safe and weather controlled option to look at the surrounding Niagara Falls at a higher altitude rather then from the ground or water levels.
Fun on the wheel.

We were unable to go because we were not informed that it was on the Canadian side by Viator. No plans were made to cross the border.

Nice ride, tickets online a hinderance.
Julie_S, July 2022
I purchased tickets online for our vacation and when we got there to get the tickets only 1 person can get the online tickets so we had to wait on a longer line and everyone who came up to purchase tickets right there got right on with no issues or wait. I would suggest just getting the tickets when you are there.
