    From WHIO News Talk Radio:

    Talk about seeing the world from a different angle! Get a bird’s-eye view of New York, London, and other must-see spots around the globe on these thrilling—and beautiful!—rides.

    Most people traveling to a new place will find themselves seeking out the highest point in the city at some point during their trip, whether it’s the observation deck at the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower) when visiting Chicago, or the top of the Empire State Building when they’re in New York City. But there are other, fun, family-friendly ways to get great views around town: Ferris wheels! Climb onboard any of these 13 and you’ll be treated to a different view and in some cases, a unique and memorable ride you can write home about. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy. And don’t forget your camera!

    One of the Ferris wheels mentioned is the Niagara SkyWheel:

    The Niagara Sky Wheel
    Clifton Hill, Canada
    What’s the best way to catch a glimpse of majestic Niagara Falls? By Ferris wheel of course! Take a ride on the Niagara SkyWheel, located just across the Canadian border in Clifton Hill, for a rare look at the famous Falls from 175 feet above in a comfortable, climate-controlled gondola. American citizens will need a U.S. Passport or Passport Card to clear the border, but it’s well worth it for an 8-12 minute ride on Canada’s largest observation wheel.
    How to ride: Visitors age 12 and above pay $10.99 while children ages 3-12 pay $6.99 to ride the Niagara SkyWheel.

    1. Not sure how they came up with this list since Niagara Skywheel and Skyview Atlanta (same wheel) and Brighton Wheel (smaller) are on it but other identical wheels in Myrtle Beach, Liverpool and York (and who knows where else) are not.

      • I don’t think it is just about the wheel itself, it’s about the surrounding area. There might be identical wheels around, but the Niagara SkyWheel has a pretty unique view
