All reviews observation deck water falling self guided tour viewing area adventure pass different perspective interesting facts getting wet worth the price boat ride canadian side tunnel portal falls power elevator openings
It was so cool going behind the falls on the Canadian side. Not everyone remembers to go on this trip. When you go down in the tunnels turn right to see the windows behind the falls. Then go outside to the observation area for pics...More
The trip itself is a long elevator ride to a tunnel and viewing platform at the base of the falls. Lines can be long, but it is a unique vantage point. The view from the tunnels can vary based on sunlight, etc. Be careful, tunnels...More
You are given a plastic poncho to prevent total soaking but you get wet anyway. It is worth it as it is exciting, beautiful and noisy. Prepare to climb a lot of stairs. To hear the awesome power of the falls is very rewarding.
It's not an expensive outing, and you do get a chance to see the Horseshoe Falls up close on one side. It's not nearly as good as the Hurricane Deck on Cave of the Winds. A couple of the tunnels need drains, as you couldn't...More
Down inside the bowels of the earth for 20c$ you can see the other side of the Niagara Falls.
There is a place on the USA side where you could get even closer but this is as close as I would want to get.
Prepare to get wet. Awesome, so close to the Falls. A lot of historical information posted throughout the tunnels, which I appreciated. A Self guided tour, I would allow like 30 to 60 minutes to tour. On the day we visited a band (The Darcy’s)...More
I LOVE going to the falls and being able to have an opportunity to be right under was awesome but the cost seemed a bit much for what you got. You are paying for the 'view' and for them to pay the camera people to...More

It’s on the Canadian side. Very powerful thunderous experience actually behind the falls accessesd through a tunnnel running underneath the widest waterfall of the falls and side tunnels right up to behind the falls (about 15 feet behind the massive thundering wall of hundreds of tons of falling water). Stunning. The US side is an elevator down to the bottom of the Bride’s Veil fall and an easy walk and some stairs and platforms at the bottom of the falls - very dramatic, lots is spray; great picture taking spot. The two experiences, Canada (truly behind the falls) and the US (bottom of the falls) are very different. If you can only do one AND you have done one of the boats (Maid of the Mist if on the American side), then do the Behind the Falls on the Canadian side. I advise trying to make the time to do both (by checking when lines are short and your access is fastest).
