Skylon Tower

Skylon Tower

If you wish to have a bird’s eye view of the Niagara Falls, the Skylon Tower in Ontario, Canada is the place to go. The tower is one of the prime attractions that you will visit during a Magnificent Tours scenic tour. On top of the initial visit, Summer Scenic Tours include Return Skylon Tower Passes tour for those who wish to view the Falls again from this unique vantage point.

775 Feet Tall

Standing tall at 775 feet, the tower is an entertainment hub with a food court, a family fun centre, shopping and a 3D/4D theatre. The highlights are the indoor and outdoor observation decks from where you can get a one-of-a kind-view of the spectacular falls. Your journey to the top starts with a thrilling ride on one of the Yellow Bug elevators. These exterior elevators have a glass covering which enables you to check out the view as you travel to the top. It’s a fast ride as it takes only 52 seconds to reach the top.

Unparalleled Views of Niagara Falls

Once you reach the top, you can enjoy the gorgeous view from the observation decks. Each season offers a unique view as the landscape changes in spring, summer, fall and winter. The view includes the Niagara River with the Horseshoe, American and Bridal Veil Falls – the three falls that make up the Niagara Falls. You can also spot several attractions including the Great Gorge, the Niagara wine district, the cityscape and the landscape on the American and Canadian side.

Amazing Year Round

The view in each season is different and equally spellbinding. During spring and summer, bright, sunny days offer a clear and picturesque view of the landscape. You can see the falls cascading in all their glory with the Horseshoe Falls sending up a spray of mist into the air as the milky white waters gush down. Blue skies above and green vistas below are a sight for sore eyes. Down below on the Niagara River, you can spot the tour boats making their way to the base of the falls.

Spring is a wonderful time for an aerial view from the Skylon Tower. The landscape breaks out into a riot of colours with flowers in full bloom. Daffodils, tulips and cherry blossoms paint the area in yellow, white, pink and red and you can spot these shades from the top.

Equally mesmerising is the view during fall season as the leaves of the trees change their colour. Maple, birch and poplar trees near the falls paint the area in vibrant shades. Vivid colours of the fall foliage include red, yellow, brown, purple and orange. When seen from above, it looks like a beautiful painting.

During winter, the view from the top is a different experience altogether. The landscape is a blanket of white with snow and ice covering many areas. What’s interesting is that the gushing waters of the falls continue to tumble down even during winter.

Whatever be the season, the Skylon Tower is an amazing tour stop, and provides views of Niagara Falls that have to be seen to be believed.
