A Warm, Dry View of Niagara Falls

Stay warm and dry even in inclement weather on Skylon Tower’s Observation Deck. Summer may be the most popular time to visit Niagara Falls, but there is still plenty to enjoy on rainy days, over the winter, and in the transitional months. Thanks to the Skylon Tower’s indoor/outdoor Observation Deck, you can stay warm and cozy while you view the Falls from nearly 800 feet above! On a clear day, visitors can expect to see as far as Toronto, Ontario in one direction, and Buffalo, New York in the other, as well as the entire city of Niagara Falls.

The Observation Deck is made up of an inner indoor space, surrounded by an outdoor, fenced-in walkway. While you can stay indoors on cold, wet, and windy days, the outdoor walkway is a great place to cool off in the breeze on those humid, stifling, sweaty days. You’ll be free to roam around, take pictures, and make memories. You’ll also be able to spot other areas of Niagara you’d like to visit and see them from a new perspective. While the experience is worth every penny of the ticket price, you can gain free access to the Observation Deck when you dine in either The Revolving Dining Room or Summit Suite Buffet.

The Revolving Dining Room serves world-class cuisine, with a view to match! The restaurant makes one full revolution per hour, ensuring that you and your fellow diners get to see a panoramic view of the Falls and all that Niagara has to offer from the staggering height of 775 feet above. Follow skylon_tower on Instagram to check out the pictures our guests have taken. Remember to tag us in your posts for the chance to have your photo shared with our growing social media audience. You can view our menus, including one especially for children by clicking here.

The Summit Suite Buffet also offers a panoramic view, but you’ll be the one making the rounds! Our variety, quality, and freshness will get you up for another helping. All of our dishes are made fresh onsite, including our delectable selection of baked goods and desserts. Our selection will leave you spoiled for choice, with something for everyone in your family to enjoy. It really isn’t a trip to the Skylon Tower without indulging in one of our signature dishes or desserts, so make sure to reserve in advance, as both restaurants can get quite busy.

Now that you know the best place to view the Falls during lousy weather, you can book your trip to Niagara with confidence that you will get to experience the majestic cascade no matter what nature throws your way. Of course, it’s always best to pack for the weather and look up what is expected leading up to your vacation. Canadian winters can be cold, wet, and harsh, while summers’ heat waves can prevent people from spending a lot of time out of doors. Transitional seasons like spring and autumn are a mixed bag, with either bringing extreme temperatures of hot and cold, as well as unpredictable precipitation.

With all this in mind, it’s good to know that the Skylon Tower’s Observation Deck will have you covered—literally! So what’s the hold-up? Start planning your trip today.
