From up high in the sky, you’ll see the most breathtaking views of Niagara. Here are the top 5 views from the Niagara SkyWheel that you will witness with its panoramic viewing.
Soaring 175 feet up in the clouds in a private, climate-controlled gondola, it’s sure to be the most comfortable sightseeing experience you’ve had. The Niagara SkyWheel at Clifton Hill looks over some of Niagara’s most prominent landmarks and features. You’ll get a dose of Canadian history and get to play the most epic game of “I Spy” ever! Make sure that the camera and cell phones are all fully charged because you’ll want to take photos of each remarkable landmark you see, and maybe use the view as the ultimate selfie backdrop.
From up here, you’ll get to experience the falls in all of its glory. What looks like one waterfall is actually three separate waterfalls that come together to create this natural beauty. The biggest of the three is known as the Horseshoe Falls (named after it’s horseshoe shape), which flows into the American Falls. From here, the river is split from a small island called the Luna Island which creates the third and smallest waterfall called the Bridal Veil Falls.
Queen Victoria Park
The Queen Victoria Park is covered in a beautiful collection of native and international plants and flowers and is considered to be the heart of Niagara Falls. From the SkyWheel, you’ll see the perfectly maintained shapes and large spots of flourishing green and trees. Inside the park, you’ll find a rock garden and a tea-rose garden, just a few of the many beautiful spaces to enjoy nature and relax.
The Niagara River flows from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario and creates the border between Canada and the United States. From up in the SkyWheel the river may seem small, but it actually reaches over 58 km! There are 4 different lakes that flow into this river: Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan, and Lake Erie.
Dinosaur Adventure Golf
Where else can you get a view of an “erupting” volcano? The Niagara SkyWheel gives you a unique view of Canada’s only prehistoric 36-hole outdoor miniature golf course, the Dinosaur Adventure Golf! With over 50 massive dinos, a volcano that actually spews fire, and lush gardens, you will be guaranteed quite the view from the SkyWheel. Watch out for the T-Rex!
A view of a famous landmark? Check! The Rainbow Bridge is a historic arch bridge across the Niagara River gorge, and is known as a world-famous tourist site. The Rainbow Bridge is the gateway between Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York. You’ll get an amazing view from here!
