Rising 775 feet above Niagara Falls is the Skylon Tower. Step inside one of three Yellow Bug elevators for an exhilarating, one-minute ride up the exterior. From the observation decks, marvel at the incredible falls below you. You will also be impressed with the 360° perspective of the Niagara Peninsula (Canadian side) and the Niagara Frontier (U.S. side). Stay for a meal at one of two revolving restaurants. Skylon Tower opened in 1964. It was financed by Charles Richard Reese, the former co-owner of the H. R. Reese Candy Company.
