What people are saying about Montreal

So easy to find and such a nice atmosphere! Clean and calm and safe feeling around as we went at night. Nice cafe right beside the ferris wheel also with a lot of selection.

Super fun at night, this ride is safe and offers a climate controlled and beautiful view of Montreal for about 20 minutes. Great time with kids!

Good clean safe cabin to circle the sky with; I think about 4 times full circle . Worth what was paid as some wheels only do 1 x round ,,,,

Nice pace. You go around 3 times. Best to go at night to truly appreciate the lights and skyline. Well worth the price!

Multiple trips around were an unexpected surprise! Showing up early defiantly helps to avoid the rush.
