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.

This is an awesome adventure! My kids and I had a blast. Being up close to the waterfalls is truly amazing and breathtaking! Be prepared to get soaked if you go all the way to the Hurricane deck!

This is the best activity that we did in Niagara Falls. You start is a little museum/interactive area. They provide sandals to wear, plastic bags to put your shoes in, and rain ponchos. You ride an elevator down to river level. Then you climb along...More

We've been to Niagara Falls before but had not done this. Big mistake. This was the best $19 ticket I've ever had. We went at 9:30, had no lines and plenty of room to take pictures on the walkways. I wish I had a cloth...More

This experience, overall was great. You get to wear a poncho and get up close and personal with the falls. The wind is blowing and you will get wet! There are long lines and little direction of what to do. They have small dinky elevators,...More

By far, this is one of the best things to do in Niagra. Get there early to buy your ticket about 8:30-9:00 am. It's a timed attraction, meaning you buy a ticket and they tell you what time to return to go in. My teen...More

Nicely done, an interesting short history film prior to getting wet on the stairs. You can feel the energy of the falls and the wind on your face, a great experience.
