Shop in one of our 12 speciality shops on the main level as a prelude to your Ride to the Top in our glass enclosed Yellow Bug elevators. There is plenty of parking. The Skylon Tower is a signature building that makes our Niagara Falls skyline unique. The Skylon was built in 1964 and opened in 1965. The construction cost $7 million and was financed by the The Hershey Company shareholdings. The Skylon Tower features outside mounted ‘Yellow Bug’ elevators which at the time of the construction were the first of their kind. The elevators run all year round and are a fun route up to the fantastic observatory at the tip top of the Skylon. Many a fantastic photo have been taken from the top of the Skylon Tower, so make sure you bring your camera!
