We went in February because of the very cold winter we had to see the frozen river, This was my first time in the underground caves, The scenery was well worth the absolutely frigid temps beneath the Falls.

Having read the reviews of others, I wasn't sure whether we would enjoy this experience or whether it would be worth it or not. But we did - we loved it !! It was freezing cold down there so do wrap up well if you go in Winter, though!! We walked the tunnels and enjoyed reading the plaques explaining the... More

If we hadn't bought the "Wonderpass" I would not have spent the money to see this attraction. You can't really see too much from the portals, with the exception of the area where you are in the mist itself.

During the right time of year this might be a great attraction but we were there in early April and the lower part was closed because of the snow. The part that was open were frozen and there was no moving water just a block of ice. I would recommend this in warmer weather.

Like others have said in the winter or even April, you can only see the falls from one platform but it still provides a different view of the falls. We didn't stay long. They do discount the price a little and warn you that there is only one area to view from before you buy the ticket. I can see... More

I don't know why they even open it in winter when there is ice (actually, I do: to make money). You see nothing. Might be different starting in May but again, do not go until all the ice is gone.

My wife and I got Wonder Passes for $20 each and this was included. Pretty up close to the falls but very limited due to the snow. The two portal views behind the falls were completely block by ice so there really wasn't much to see. You do get to get right up near the bottom of the falls on... More

We bought the package deal which included the Journey behind the falls. It was pretty neat, but you really could not see behind the falls due to ice build up it the wall cut outs!

Due to the weather, this wasn't very scenic. I was on this tour several years ago during the summer and it was fantastic

I'm glad that I did this, but the experience did not live up to the advertising. The "journey" to behind the falls was through damp and dark tunnels, and the view from behind the falls was very disappointing, seen through a narrow hole in the rock. The outside viewing platform was better.
