Overview

This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

While not open in the winter months, this is a neat part of the Niagara Falls attraction complex. The experience on the Canadian side is, frankly, better. But don't miss the Cave of the Winds if you visit the American side.

This is an absolute must do in Niagara Falls. If you do nothing else, do this. It is incredible to stand at the foot of this magnificent waterfall

Great place to visit with kids of all ages. Extra activities more appropriate for older kids/teenagers/adults.

An amazing, one of a kind experience. I would suggest wearing shorts and flip flops, as you cannot enjoy this attraction without getting wet (despite the rain coat they give you while entering) Standing under, while the water pounds on your back is an awesome...More
