I am almost 69 years old and not adventurous at all. My son asked me if I would be interested in going since I have a mild heart condition. I saw the video on youtube and decided to do it. The next day I regretted my decision but he already made the reservations and I didn't want to disappoint my... More

This was a highlight of our trip! Exhilarating ride through Class 5 Rapids, at least 4 times, 360 boat spins, up close views of the Class 6 rapids!

This was a great experience! Well run, from the ticket booth personnel to the guide, to the bus driver. Well worth the $60 charge. Lasted close to an hour. Great group activity. Word to the wise - bring a bathing suit or don't plan any activity afterwards, because you will get soaked - every piece of clothing you're wearing. I... More

We learned about this tour last year and looked forward to it. It definitely didn't disappoint. We sat in the front row and had a blast. Our captain navigated the boat like an expert and our guide, Asia, was a lot of fun. I felt safe and exilerated at the same time. You will get soaked, no doubt. I totally... More

We are not usually very adventurous, but we decided to try this. It was so much fun! I would recommend that you wear your swimsuit, because you are going to get drenched! It's a beautiful setting and riding the rapids is thrilling. Also, spring for the video. It's not very long, but you get to see how you handled the... More

Family of 9 with the youngest being a girl 6 yrs old and the oldest being senior aged grandparents. All of us really loved this adventure ride. We all got soaking wet so bring a change of clothes, including a towel. We were a bit concerned about the youngest thinking the boat/water may be too rough. We held on and... More

Thrill seekers rejoice. Well run, friendly staff AWESOME boats. Be prepared to get wet. Not wet....drowned! Total blast from leisurely cruise up river until the rapids where the fun begins. Cruise director was fun and safety oriented. Don't visit Niagara without a trip on the jet boats.
