This attraction was a favorite for me and my teenage kids. What a great way to cool off in the hot summer months. We arrived quite earlier than others who were booked for the same time. We were instructed that when it got closer to boarding time, our group would need go thru a quick pre tour briefing, then would... More

Thank you very much for your feedback! It is mandatory for all guests to attend the safety orientation whether you have been on the trip before or not, so I apologize for the disappointment that you experienced when we failed to ensure this policy.

Be prepared to get soaked! If you like water activities like me, then you'll love this one too! It's like a mini roller coaster ride, just with water! And this is a good way to relieve stress.

Had a great time on the jet boat ride. The water is beautiful and the scenery is amazing. Had a blast getting drenched. So much fun! Well worth it! While in Lewiston, take a walk up Center Street. Lots of quant shops and restaurants. Our favorite was 700 Bistro & Café. Great food, beautiful décor, very friendly staff.

We went on a sunny, but mild day. Glad we wore extra clothing because the ride does get windy. This ride was so much fun! We had a teenager with us and it met his high standards for a thrill ride. You get absolutely slammed with walls of water, but keep a good attitude and enjoy it! Ryan was our... More

This is the most incredible gurney down the river. you see the gorge from a whole new perspective. But remember you get WET! like jumping in the river with your clothes on. bring clothes even under clothes and a towel. but it is incredible. sit in rows 3 to 5 for best ride

Not much to be said that hasn't been in other reviews, except the scenery on your journey is beautiful, the water is so clean and clear and as you travel down the river you mainly see unobstructed beauty. Although I wouldn't consider the ride scary, I wouldn't take anyone frail, elderly or younger kids. You do get really wet and... More

First 2 rows are the best! Very helpful staff. Devil's Hole is a must for everyone visiting Niagra! The safety session before boarding covers everything you need to follow. 1600 HP boat with twin 800hp jet engines ensures you do not get stuck in the rapids.
