    Favorite thing: Niagara's highest and most spectacular view - 775 ft. above the Falls. The awe-inspiring panorama will take your breath away. Ride one of exterior glass enclosed elevators to the indoor\outdoor Observation Deck

    Fondest memory: The tower features three outside mounted "Yellow Bug" elevators. At the time of their construction they were the first such elevators in Canada.

    The tower has two restaurants at its top, the lower Revolving Dining Room and the upper Summit Suite Buffet. The RDR seats 276 people and revolves once every hour (a 3 horsepower motor is required to rotate the floor). An observation deck sits at the tower's summit. The base of the tower features a number of gift shops, fast food restaurants and a large amusement arcade. A floor for conventions is also available, but has been seldom utilized in recent years.

    Favorite thing: Before i go up to the Fall's tower i can make a closer look of it.The lines that they dont look very clear are the lights that fading when the night comes.Notice the outside yellow elevators!
