Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The observation tower is a THE perfect place to go for photos of the falls from the American side. You get a gorgeous long shot include the American Falls, the tip of Goat Island and Horseshoe Falls. The view looking up and down the river is unforgettable!

There are a lot of people who like to take photos from the tower, so be patient and take turns getting in and out. If you're just enjoying the view you can step back and let people take photos. There is visual opportunity all over the observation deck.

Come here at 9pm for fireworks and light show. Totally worth it and bring your camera for some cool shots.
This place was open and free where we visited it in August and surprisingly not huge crowds, you could get a spot to take pictures easily. The fireworks, and light show work well with the falls. It is a must see when you are close by.

Don’t miss spending a little time on the observation tower taking in the views of the falls and the Canadian side. You will have to go here anyway if you plan to go on The Maid of the Mist as you will board the elevator to descend to the boarding area.

Great Architecture wonder to make sure that American side has as good view as Canada side is possible because of this marvellous Tower.

This tower offers great 360 view. You can see horseshoe falls in the distance and American falls very clearly. Also, you can watch river flowing downstream, which is peaceful and calming.

The best vantage point to see all 3 of the falls. Not to mention the beautiful view of the skyline of Canada.

The observation tower will give you a great view of the closest fall, but to really feel the force of the water you'll need to get closer.
