Review of Skylon Tower

Skylon Tower
Ranked #21 of 148 things to do in Niagara Falls
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We visited early Sunday morning so the queues were not very big so managed to go straight up after having our photo took which seems to be every where in Niagara Falls. The views were good but make sure you wrap up warm as very windy as you would expect at the height you are at. After coming back down we decided to purchase the photos with the silly backgrounds on which are expensive at $25 for one and $35 for 2 but thought why not. However we nearly walked off as the lady who was serving us just upped and went half way through us paying as it was her break. Literally just passed our card to another girl and went, the poor girl didn't know what to do. Terrible service by that girl who should put her customer service skills before her stomach. The whole up and down only takes about 30 mins so with the poor service and prices it is expensive for the views even though they are good.

I recommend visiting this tower in combination with the summit buffet. The buffet is 30/pp and the lift ticket is 15/pp but if you eat at the buffet in the tower your lift ticket is free making this entire experience more worthwhile. Each in and of itself for the face value is not fantastic but together they are good and worth a visit. Just be sure to reserve for lunch ahead of time it tends to book quickly

We stopped by the Skylon Tower on a walk to the Skywheel and purchased the Ride
to the Top option only. Very nice views, friendly staff but old and could use a good cleaning.

It was fogging that night and we couldn't see the falls, but the food was amazing. The service impeccable. There were 4 of us and we all had the steak au poivre with french onion soup and salad. All were fantastic.

We went up here in the AM & then came back to see the falls lit up. It’s absolutely awesome. The quick ride up on the outside of the tower is really cool & then the 360 degree view of the city, falls, and surrounding area is something one must do when here in Niagara.
