The Skylon Tower
The Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls, Ontario, is an observation tower that overlooks both the American Falls, New York and the larger Horseshoe Falls, Ontario from the Canadian side of the Niagara River.

Standing at 520 feet from street level and 775 feet from the bottom of the falls, the tower required approval from both Canadian and United States air transport authorities, due to its proximity to the international boundary.

The tower features three outside mounted "Yellow Bug" elevators. At the time of their construction they were the first such elevators in Canada. They carry passengers to the top of the tower in 52 seconds.

The tower has two restaurants at its top, the lower Revolving Dining Room and the upper Summit Suite Buffet. The Revolving Dining Room seats 276 people and revolves once every hour by resting on a circular rail that is propelled by a 3 horsepower (2.2 kW) motor. An observation deck sits at the tower's summit. The base of the tower features a number of gift shops, fast food restaurants and a large amusement arcade.

The Skylon Tower is seen in Superman II. It is also used as a police lookout in the 1979 film Search and Destroy starring Perry King and George Kennedy.

Alex really wanted to eat at a Denny's in Canada, so we did. Alex liked the food - the two RV Gypsies did not. (note: Alex also ate at the western most Denny's in the world when we were in Alaska)
