    Skylon Tower

    The Skylon Tower is one of those places that you have to visit when at Niagara, for the views from up high if nothing else.

    They have a shop here selling all the usual tack!! The views are something else, and the lift is scary as it travels up and down!!

    Horseshoe Falls as seen from Skylon Tower

    A trip to the top of the Skylon Tower is a must for a panoramic view of both Falls. A combination ticket for the Imax movie and the Skylon Tower observation deck is available and saves you a few dollars.

    View from Skylon Tower

    One of the few attractions in Niagara Falls worth paying for is the Skylon Tower. From the observation deck high above the ground you'll have a spectacular view of both the American and Horseshoe Falls. One word of caution though: In the winter it can be absolutely brutal up there, so bring warm clothes!

    Skylon Tower

    Take an elevator 520 ft to get a great view of the falls. I haven't been up this tower in a few years, but I remember liking it as a child. There is also a revolving restaurant here,
    The Minolta Tower is another tower with a restaurant which offers nice views as well, but it is not quite as tall..
    Admission is $7.60 US or $9.50 CND. It is open year round, but with shorter hours in the winter. Check the website for exact times.

    Scarey 'ladybug' lifts that travel up the outside of the building. Brilliant view of the falls from the top. Great photo opportunity.

    from the skylon tower

    The Skylon tower offers stunning views across Niagara.

    It is really high/I hate heights! but so worth it for the views - they really are something else.

    Ride the glass elevator to the top and look at breathtaking views of the city and the falls. Enjoy fine dining at the revolving restaurant at the top.
