The Niagara SkyWheel is a 175 foot tall Ferris wheel in the hart of the Clifton Hill area of Niagara Falls, Ontario. It opened in June 2006 and cost about $10 million to build.

The leisurely ride takes about 15 minutes and gives passengers great views of Niagara River and the falls, and the city.

We climb on board one of 42 Swiss built air conditioned passenger cars.

From our mid-air vantage point we can see spectacular views of the Horseshoe and American Falls, the Niagara River, Niagara Parks and the city below us.
