Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You'll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool. Sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!

The Aero car takes you over the water to get a breathtaking view. It doesn't last very long but it was beautiful.

I didn't expect it to run so softly. My husband kept laughing at me cause I thought it would be old and rickety! Loved the tour that came with. Beauty scenery.

We went to this attraction because it was included in our Niagara Parks Adventure Pass. When we heard it was a 100 year old cable car we assumed it would be creaky, shaky, and terrifying. It was just the opposite. The ride was very smooth,...More

Definitely a must see if you are visiting. You can see the whirlpools, and people hiking or fishing. The wait might be longer than the actual ride for this one and you will want to have warm clothes to avoid the cold winds.

Well worth a visti. The views from the Aero Car are amazing. The view of the water below gives you an idea of the amount of water flowing through the whirlpool. Some nice walks down to the river as well very close by.

This cable car goes out over a nearly right angle bend in the Niagara River. From this vantage point you can get a good look at the gorge, the rapids and the whirlpool formed by the bend in the river. The on board operator provided...More
