A great way to have fun, with a little adrenaline. It wasn't long enough!!! They could have done 360 a little more often on the way to and from the Whirlpool area.

This was the first of our many anniversary adventures and we had a blast! Staff was very friendly and reassuring. Our tour guide was awesome and could tell us all about the different facilities/plants along the way. What a fun way to get wet. They made sure everyone was soaked...including the children. Safe ride!!!

So, you basically get soaked on this whole trip no matter where you sit. We even wore extra rain gear (than what they provided), and the water just dumped down our jackets. This is a very fun ride, like a roller coaster on water. You fly down the river at over 50 MPH, I forgot how fast we went. You... More

My partner and his friend really enjoyed this and said it was really fun. You get soaked but that is the whole point. Great way to see the Rapids and is worth the money as you are out for a good hour 😀

We first rode this in 1994 when it just opened and loved the experience. Since then we've taken the jetboat ride about 5 times. The most recent ride didn't disappoint. Since it was a hot, it was a perfect day. We changed into out bathing suits and surf shoes. First, it's a nice scenic ride on the Niagara River while... More

We booked in advance for the Whirlpool Jet Boat thinking it'd be an exciting way to spend a morning - and we were definitely right! Although it was pretty cold and raining heavily on our chosen day, we needn't have worried as you're provided with a fleece, a flight suit, shoes and a water resistant poncho. However, you will still... More

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
