By far the most exciting thing we did on our trip to Niagara Falls. The maid of the mist was pretty, the aero car was fun, but this was a genuine adventure!! Like a roller coaster on water. I cant wait to go back and do it again!!!

This is such a great time We were a party of five, four adults and one teenager and we all had a blast. We have a seven-year old and I'm glad we decided not to take her. I think a child could be easily scared. The water hits you so fast and hard that it could be overwhelming for a... More

If you are an adventure seeker or have done other activities such as jet skies then this experience won't be as good as it's advertised. The staff onboard did a good job of hyping up the experience but it was a lot of hype with little to support it. Basically, you "play" on one rapid and only get to look... More

All I can say is FANTASTIC BOAT RIDE! I had two girls with me ages 9 and 11 and they both said it was the high light of our trip. The rapids were a first for the three of us and we all would go again. When they say you will get wet its an understatement--we were all soaked. Our... More

Holy cow that was exciting. Takes you tight into the rapids and let's you realize how powerful they are. I was glad to have huge engines on the boat once you are in the rapids. Be prepared you get soaked. It starts off very gentle, nice rude up the river with beautiful homes on the banks, then you hit the... More

After viewing all the videos we decided to give the Ontario side a try. Pleasantly surprised even as 60+ year olds. COLD Water Wakeup Rush and as they said...Ladies if you have makeup on, consider this a FREE Removal! Recommend highly!

I do not recommend this, it was the biggest waste of time and money. I went on a different jet adventure and loved it. I recommend you keep looking. I DO NOT RECOMMEND GOING HERE.

We sat in the 2nd row and we got soaked/drenched! Bring a change of clothes. They have changing rooms and lockers. The staff were knowledgeable about the niagara River and the powerhouses (CA & US). Worth the moeny! Nice way to cool off on a hot day! They provide water shoes if you come unprepared.
