Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Ontario  /  Niagara Falls  /  Skylon Tower

Skylon Tower, Niagara Falls

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.

  • While traveling by train from Toronto to Niagara I started to investigate what places we could eat and I found the Skylon Tower, I called a lot of attention and the price-quality ratio, it is worth visiting the tower and have a rich meal with an AMAZING view. I Made the reservation from my cell phone and costs 35 CAD per person with drinks included. We Got to the 1pm and they had a table stuck to the window. The view was amazing, the waiters very attentive and the place clean and very decent.

  • 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.
