The Dome

Within the Dome of the Skylon Tower, the circular design and provision of three separate and complete levels make it possible for all visitors to enjoy an unobstructed view. Viewing conditions are further enhanced through the use of a special grey glass in the windows to diffuse sunlight and reduce glare. These windows allow for quality photographs to be taken from the inside deck on those occasions when inclement weather defers one from strolling the outside area.


The indoor/outdoor Observatory, the highest vantage point in Niagara, is located on the third floor of the Dome. On a clear day visitors can see close to 8,000 square miles of Canada and the United States, including the skylines of Toronto and Buffalo. At night, year-round, you can enjoy the color light display of the Falls and cities of Niagara Falls, Canada and Niagara Falls, New York. A souvenir shop is located on the indoor section of the observatory.

US-Canada Border Crossing Information

Neither Canada nor the USA will allow any person to cross an international border who does not have the proper documentation to return across that border. Everyone from every country arriving in Canada or the USA by air, land or sea now needs a passport or equivalent travel document. Equivalent travel documents include:

  • Nexus Card: A partnership between the Canada and U.S. border services that pre-approves entry for travelers by land, sea or air between Canada and U.S. An added benefit is designated and faster lanes at border crossings and airports. Application process involves interview and fingerprinting. Both U.S. and Canadian citizens apply through U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
  • US Passport Card: This U.S. Department of State-issued ID is valid for entry into Canada by land or sea, though not valid for international air travel.
  • Enhanced Driver's License (EDL): EDLs indicate both citizenship and identity and are valid for entry into Canada by land or sea, though not valid for international air travel. As of January 2009, EDLs were only available in Washington and New York states, but were planned for Vermont as well. See individual state licensing departments for more info.
  • Fast/Express Card: This U.S. Customs and Border Protection program pre-approves commercial truck drivers for travel between the U.S. and Canada.

Children ages 18 and under are required to present proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate - passports, of course, are also acceptable.

If one parent is traveling with a minor child without the other parent, they must also have a notarized letter from the absent parent stating approval for the one parent to travel across the US-Canada border with the child.

    The ticket takers at Skylon were unfamiliar with Alcatraz Media. The view from the Skylon is fantastic, since you are looking at both the US and Canadian falls directly. I would recommend it to anyone; the only problem was with non-recognition of our e-tickets.
