Could not see lower deck as still covered in ice and snow. Upper deck had a great view and the sound of the falls being that close is just magnificent.

The tour take you down several meters behind the falls. you start by taking an elevator down and then walk through constructed tunnels. along the way, you can read about the many different aspects of the falls and how they contribute to the land. since the...

My kids and I wanted to experience the falls as close as we could. The boats were not in operation at the time so we decided on this to get us a little closer to the falls. We purchased a pass that included this, the butterfly conservatory, and the fury attraction, all for about $20. It was a great deal.

We did this early on a Saturday morning in April. It was crowded but not horribly so. There was still ice on the outside observation area so we could not go outside but the view from inside the viewing hut was spectacular, and very different from the view top side. You walk through a tunnel to 2 different viewing areas... More

The lines were annoying and the information about securing tickets and getting through are not totally clear. A bit of a herd of people at the different viewing spots. It's not a must see.

It was really interesting to get another view of the falls. It was really cold when we were there so we didn't stay long but we enjoyed it.

Sounds great, doesn't it? "Journey Behind the Falls"… sounds like you pay your dime to go on a JOURNEY BEHIND THE FALLS. What you do is stand in line for 20 minutes to pay a today sum to stand in another line. This line leads to an elevator, which whisks you down three stories to the lower half of the... More

Amazing view but highly recommend going during the summer since the lower observation deck is closed. Thankfully there's a smaller upper deck which had some nice views. The tunnels are cool to walk around and do are the history boards that are randomly placed. Would highly recommend this place!

We came while there was still a lot of ice so the lower deck was of limits. Could still see the falls from under/behind. Very little wait and a memorable family event. I would do it again.
