What attractions can you find at the Niagara SkyWheel?
You could say that it is a safe way to visit Niagara from a high but safe place. It is a structure with a height of several metres which is used to look at the beauty of Niagara in all its splendour.
Thanks to its great height and panoramic view, you can easily take amazing pictures if you have a camera, although with today’s mobile phones you don’t need a camera to take amazing pictures.
It is also worth mentioning that this place has a leisure centre for all ages plus a restaurant where you can eat while watching the wonders of the place through the window.
In order to access this place as such, to its highest point, you have to take the famous Yellow Bug Elevators. These will take you in less than 1 minute to the highest point of the site. It is a really worthwhile tourist site.
