Wow!

This was a great experience! Half price in the winter and the falls were half frozen and just beautiful!! Definitely worth doing, even in the winter!

This tour gives you a visual of how much water comes across the falls per minute! It is amazing the amount of force. It was beautiful to see!

Though the two opening behind the falls were completely frozen solid, the lookout platform just next to hirseshow falls remains open. It's an amazing view all year but being that close to the falls when they were producing so much ice was incredible! The other attractions (Maid of the Mist and Cave of winds are understandably closed, so this was... More

I do not know what I was thinking by going through this attraction. I paid so much money that could of been spent on something else, on a view of a long tunnel into whiteness. You can't see anything. Spend your money on maid of most which is actually great. Don't waste your time.

We were really surprised to see this open in winter. So we went and we were so happy we did. The viewpoints were iced over, but the viewing platform was open. And the views from it were spectacular. They were right at the edge of the falls and the side window showed beautiful ice formations, while the front view let... More

We just came back from visiting Niagara Falls in the winter. The journey behind the falls was nice, but a little pricey. You can only go on the deck, the viewing areas behind the falls are closed because they are covered in ice. It was nice but you are not missing anything if you don't visit this attraction.

We visited in December, so it was freeezing. However, I could have stood all day long looking at the falls so close up. It wasn't very busy at all since we went in the winter (the whole of Niagara Falls was quite dead and the skywheel was under construction, but everything else was open and we didn't queue anywhere!).

This is probably a great experience in spring or summer but in February it is not worth the money or effort. It is not possible to actually get behind the falls due to the ice and can only reach a lower level than normal viewers,also it can get a bit crowded with a bit of shoving to see the icicles....

I personally don't think that it was worth my money. First we didn't get to the lower deck as it was covered in ice. So we got to be beside the fall but on the upper deck. The two other spots were frozen (the ones behind the falls) so we couldn't see through them. It might be worth it the... More

We visited last week, we were told that the lower viewing platform was closed due to the snow and that the 2 tunnels behind the falls were frozen, so couldn't actually view the force of the falls, but WOW was it worth the $12 , to be so close to the falls and seeing the icicles hanging right in front...
