You get a real sense of the overwhelming power of the Falls standing on the viewing porches at the side of Horseshoe Falls. Nothing fancy, just water cascading down...but in a torrent !! Along with the Hornblower boat trip this is a don't miss.

This was a unique experience, because you have the opportunity to get up close to the falls from BEHIND them -- there are tunnels that lead to viewing portals behind the waterfalls. You can spend as much time as you want to down there, and enjoy the views from inside the portals, and outside on the viewing platform. Worth a... More

The "Behind the Falls" were not quite what we were expecting. Having got "suited up" in our plastic capes - we got the elevator down to the tunnels and then went along a passage to a small opening where you could see the water. In fact all you could see was a grey wall of water and we got no... More

For only $20, you get the best view of the horseshoe falls as well as viewing out portals from tunnels behind the falls. If you fleetingly look, the portals don't give much but take some time and look at the mist and wash of the falls - amazing stuff. A must do - drop the boat if you have to.

One of the more special tourist events. Gets you very up close and personal with the falls. The platform is very cool. Spend time there. I would say the tunnels are not worth the tight quarters and wait to see a sheet of water. Overall one of the up close and near experiences. Short list of what is worthy of... More

Although we didn't get as wet as we thought we'd get, we did enjoy the up close views of the Canadian Falls and the two portals that you can walk to. It's very interested to be behind the falls, even if you can't see much. The power of the water is amazing. I would recommend this attraction.

I expected an enormous amount from this famous attraction. The viewing platform slightly to the side of Horseshoe Falls was spectacular, if wet (most of the attractions here involve getting wet, unsurprisingly!). The portals behind the falls were a disappointment, as all you can do is look at water rushing past a hole, rather like looking into a washing machine!... More

We did this as part of the adventure pass. It does take a long que and wait to get down beyond the falls but it is amazing to see the height of the falls looking up. You do get soaked though so make sure you've got a water proof/resistant camera.

The spectacle of being behind the fall was unique but not particularly exciting. However part of the same entrance was access to the two viewing platforms situated just off to the side of the falls. From here you could really feel to the power of the water and got a great view of the horseshoe. The information panels along the... More

We traveled at a good time of year (early September), so there was maybe a 5 minute wait to take the elevator down to the tunnels. It had interesting facts lining the walls of the tunnel. I really wouldn't waste time going down the long hall to the portals that go behind the falls. All you can see was water... More
