It was very exciting for the kids. But I would expect much more for what we paid. The staff at the launching area is amazing and very professional. Bring towels and dry clothes because you will get socked.

Let me begin by saying, I feel like a grouch writing this, as every other review seems to rave about the experience but I feel like its important to have a variety of perspectives. I went in Mid-August and left out the Niagara on the Lake location, so we got a little bit of a longer ride and got to... More

First you need to arrive 45 - 60 mins BEFORE your booked time to allow for the safety course (bascialy howto put a life vest on as well as what not to do).You will also be asked to sign waivers in case of injury before the trip starts. For anyone driving the parking lot is small so be warned, all... More

On Saturday August 8, 2015, Three co workers and myself decided to go on a jetboat tour on our yearly weekend away in Niagara Falls. The co workers had an amazing fun thrilling experience. Unfortunately for me we got to the first rapid (Devil) and I got a face full of water and lost my breath and then went into... More

This boat ride is a thrill ride through the class 5 rapids on the Niagara River. I absolutely loved it. It is not for small children ( I doubt that they're allowed--- possibly on the closed boat.) You have a choice when you book, closed boat or open boat. For the most thrills, choose the open boat . You meet... More

This attraction is very well organized. They clearly know what they are doing and take good care of their guests. You can choose how rambunctuous your ride is by how far forward or back in the boat that you sit. Wear your own water shoes (must have a strap at the back of the foot so they stay on) if... More

Wet, wet and wet can only describe this once in a life time experience. Staff amazing they make you feel welcome and very safe. I must do if visiting the Niagara Region. Suitable for families.

Took the whole family and we were lucky enough to get front row seats. It was a great ride up the river towards the falls (you don't actually see the falls). Then you get to play in the rapids on a jet boat. It was spectacular. PS You will get wet, not may, will.
