With three observation decks, including one indoor/outdoor deck, get spectacular views of the Falls from 775 feet above Niagara River that you can’t get anywhere else. This signature structure of Niagara Falls was built in 1964 for $7 million and first opened in 1965 to the public.
Ride up to the top in less than a minute, or walk up 662 steps to the Skylon Tower Observation Deck! The elevators run all year round and provide your first glimpse of the cascading falls before reaching the top. The structure is the tallest total entertainment complex with an arcade, specialty shops, two dining rooms, and three observation decks.
Niagara’s largest indoor amusement park is located at the base of Skylon Tower. The Skylon Fun Centre includes arcade games, a 4D theatre, and a food court to keep the whole family busy.
Shop around at one of the 12 specialty shops at the base, too! The Skylon shopping center features clothing, jewelry, crafts from local artisans, international boutiques, and of course, Canadian souvenirs.
Dining at Skylon Tower
Take in the magnificent views of the Falls at one of the two dining experiences, both located at the top of Skylon Tower. The Summit Suite Buffet is perfect for families looking for a delicious, yet affordable meal. This casual buffet-style restaurant is open year round for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Experience Niagara Falls in a whole new way at the Revolving Dining Room. Known for its award-winning continental cuisine, this restaurant slowly revolves to give you a 360 degree view of the Falls. Enjoy lunch or dinner as you take in the views from 775 feet high. Stay for sundown and experience the colorful lights that illuminate the Falls and seasonal fireworks. It’s a truly magical sight!
