You'll get to see first hand the force of the falls which is amazing. I took video behind the falls and its pretty cool to be able to share how forceful the falls really are. The observation deck is great for pictures and the tour is self guided so you can stay as long as you'd like.

The outdoor platform, next to the Falls, offers amazing vistas, and it is exciting to walk behind the Falls and see the crashing water, just a few feet away from you. That said, the "behind the Falls" experience is a bit limited-- you walk down long corridors and stroll up to an area about as wide as a double doorway... More

Not as nice as we were expecting but I still think it is worth seeing specially if you buy the package that also includes the boat ride. Be prepared to get really wet!

IMHO this attraction is a waste of time and money. Paid almost $60 for three people just to get wet and look at a wall of water. Not worth your hard earned cash.

The Journey Behind The Falls let us be right at the falling water! Be prepared to get wet the closer you venture! There is no other way to get right up to the falls and see the force close up.

This is a great stop for anyone. You take the elevator down roughly 12 stories to behind the falls. You are able to stand behind the waterfall and be able to see the power and amount of water that is falling. There is also an observation deck that is an excellent photo spot to have your picture taken in front... More

I was expecting more. They supply you with seethrough plastic raincoat. You get in an elevator to go down once you step out the elevator there is a guy who tells you to stand there so he can take your pictures, does not ask you if you want it ...Then you walk in a 150ft tunnel where you encounter two...

This is a definite must see attraction. To see the force of the water coming over the falls is a once in a life time opportunity.

This self guided tour gives you an appreciation of the power of Niagara Falls. You walk around some tunnels under the falls, are able to read about some facts about the falls, and can get real close and personnel to the Falls. Would recommend.
