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
Had a recent trip up the tower for spectacular views of not just the falls but the surrounding areas. Had our pictures taken, they did such a great job we bought the happy snaps! As the elevator ride.... more »
A great 360 degree view of Niagara Falls and they surrounding areas. I saw it during the day and evening and it is equally stunning. more »
Skylon Tower is ranked #11 out of 13 things to do in Niagara Falls. See many of my pictures I took while in the tower and more. If you heading to the falls I recommend to visit the Canada side only for which you will have much to do. Especially take awesome photos for memorable chapters. One of the locations to visit would be the Skylon Tower, where the tower spins slowly allowing you to see beautiful Niagara Falls. Yes, have your camera ready with burst mode. Surprisingly, the food and service were top notch too. Easy 5-star grab. Why don’t we have this set up in NYC?
Skylon Tower, It is the observer tower of Niagara falls from the Canadian side. When I was in Niagara Falls, besides going to see its own beauty, I also took a tour of Niagara Falls, one of the programs was seeing Niagara from the top of the tower. A beautiful view of Niagara Falls can be seen from there and I am satisfied watching all that. According to many people actually witnessing Niagara Falls will be far more beautiful at night from the Canadian side when compared to the American side. But unfortunately, I do not have multiple entries to Canada, and only a single entry can be done so I have not had the opportunity for it. After watching the view from this tower, I continued my tour with lunch and visited several other objects.
