“hurricane deck”(1,029 reviews)
“plastic bag”(142 reviews)
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.

a must do if you are in Niagara, just the wind smashing into you and the sound of the water is an amazing experience. My kids loved it. Be prepared to get very wet

We didn't know what to expect but decided to get our tickets and go see. Enjoyed it a lot! Great photos! Little bit crowded and have to wait for a nice spot to take photos. Our opinion the price is high too.

What a wonderful adventure standing below a raging waterfall. We've been to both side of the falls, Canada and the USA and we agree that this is the best experience in the area. You will get wet but that's the fun part and there are...More

This tour is not to be missed! Seeing those falls from the bottom up is amazing and to feel the power of the water rushing by, just wow! Absolutely go to the hurricane deck. Yes, you will get soaked, but it is an experience not...More

According to the online schedule, it’s only open till October 21st. Then they tear it down for the season so it doesn’t get damaged by the ice over the winter.
