Journey Behind the Falls is one of those things that should be done on a trip to Niagara Falls. It's really neat. Tunnels take you to openings behind the falls. There isn't too much to see during that part. Just a wall of water in front of you. There are however signs you can stop and read about the history... More

I have to say that this is cool, but it is certainly not worth the price tag. The "tunnels" doesn't actually show you anything except a white light at the end. I thought it would have been more cavernous or something. The side view was cool, but for the amount of wait time to get there, I would recommend doing... More

The Journey Behind the Falls was one of the four tickets included in the adventure pass. This is something that everyone needs to see at least once in their life. There are tunnels behind the falls that lead you to two openings directly behind the falls and a platform super close to the falls. You will get a little wet... More

We felt rushed at the start of our walk through the tunnels with people pushing past to get the openings, but we got a chance to stop and read some the information on the walls going in the opposite direction. Some really interesting info if you stop to take the time to read. Heard some people express their disappointment that... More

We promised our daughter a trip behind the Falls this past spring as it was mentioned that hubby took our son there when he was younger. So we went this past Saturday. It was cool and breezy, but ok outside. The view from inside Table Rock (where you wait) was stunning (and free). The line to wait for the Journey... More

This was one of the more memorable stops for me, giving me the best experience of the falls. We may have been lucky, as while there was some lineup, it wasn't as bad as some of the other reviews here led me to expect. The tunnels themselves can get quite crowded, with everyone trying to get there photos behind the... More

Standing close to the falls was absolutely an amazing experience - however don't be fooled by this "behind the falls" title - the area behind the falls is just two small concrete tunnels, jam-packed with tourists and offering only views of crashing water through narrow holes. We were definitely expecting a bit more of a viewing area. It's also worth... More

A fair amount of lining up, but worth it for the inspiring and unique experience. So close to the view, and a unique perspective.

This was an awesome experience. It was really cool to be so close to the falls and feel the mist from them. Make sure to take a water proof camera or put your camera/phone in a ziplock back and take pics through that if you want photos. They give you a thin rain suit to keep your clothes dry. The... More
