The Falls Incline Railway was the perfect way to get to and from the Falls for a reasonable price. It's just a short ride, but the view of Horseshoe Falls is perfect. Great little ride for those who have trouble walking up hills.

The funicular is a fun way to traverse the distance from the Falls up to the Fallsview Casino area (or vice versa). It is also a unique view of the Falls. A unique experience worth the time.

Get the all day pass $7 Canadian-go during the day & at night as the falls are lit up at night and it's great to see up close.
