Good for you, it was not fun!
We went to the Falls multiple times a year, but no matter how much my brother and I begged, our folks would never take us up the tower in those little yellow cars (we called them bugs) that went up and down on the sides. I was there a few years ago with my youngest son and finally did it. Cool to see Toronto from up there across the lake. I miss that part of the continent.
The Skylon Tower. Lol. My summer job in university was driving one of those green People Mover buses around the Falls and various parking lots. Nights on Clifton Hill outide The House of Frankenstein and The Houdini Hall of Fame....just pure trash. lol.
