Soaring 775 feet above the Niagara Gorge, Skylon Tower offers 360-degree views of the famous falls, the Niagara wine district and the Buffalo, New York, and Toronto skylines.

“Our glass-enclosed elevators glide to the top in just 52 seconds, offering groups a sneak peek at what is to unfold when they reach our observation decks,” says director of sales Anita Pang Hrepic. “Guests often comment that a visit to our observation decks gives them a great perspective of the power and majesty of Niagara Falls.”

With indoor and outdoor decks, Skylon Tower is also home to the only rotating restaurant in Niagara Falls, Canada.

“It’s popular with groups, as they get to enjoy one revolution per hour while dining,” Hrepic says.

The attraction offers two dining experiences: a set menu with plated meals in the newly renovated Revolving Dining Room and a buffet-style meal in the Summit Suite Buffet restaurant. Groups receive complimentary passes for the observation decks when they dine.

At the base of the tower is a 4-D motion theater, the Family Fun Centre and several gift shops.

“Our destination is unique in that we offer not only a natural wonder, but also a multitude of different attractions and activities for any traveler. From families to senior groups and honeymooners to student groups, we have something for everyone’s enjoyment. Most hotels and attractions in the area welcome groups with competitive group rates, complimentary policies, and escort and driver benefits,” Hrepic says.
