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!

A simple cablecar ride from one side of the river to the other and back. Calm. Enjoyable. Short. Good view of the whirlpools below.

Good activity for family. Slow ride to view the beauty of the whirlpool and scenic is beautiful. Well organized activities.

This is not a very long ride but totally worth it. It is somewhat off the beaten path and away from the Falls themselves but a very interesting place to explore!!

Though this is a rather short ride it is great for picture taking as you are suspended over beautiful fast moving water.

A short drive down from the falls you will find the Aero Car. Easy of the road parking and relatively short lines makes for a quick unique experience. The ride itself takes maybe 8-10 minutes provides some awesome views if you are brave enough to...More

After experiencing both the Skytower and Hornblower boat ride, this is somewhat a letdown. Perhaps it would be best to go on this Whirlpool Aero Car first before going on the Skytower and then the Hornblower boat ride.

Hey, you can purchase them there but I would recommend you either get there early (near opening time) or later in the afternoon as you will have to queue especially in peak season. Make sure the aero car is operation online... More
