awesome power

great way to FEEL the power of the falls. EXTREMELY long and boring wait in line to get the elevator down to attraction. Kids liked this as much as Maid of the Mist.

A must trip to see the awesome falls in all its glory and power of water. Up close with beautiful pictures of the falls.

This is must do in your list. Feel the Grandness of Niagara Fall here. Avoid weekends to visit Niagara, due to heavy rush.

Taking the elevator down through solid rock under the falls. Stand within feet of hundreds of thousands of gallons of water rushing by as you look out from behind the falls. Feeling your bones rattle and three earth shakes below upper get add the water rushing past. Maker sure your visit included the observation deck where you will get wet.

Our 2nd favorite attraction at the falls, only to the boat ride of course! Some of our best pictures came from the "Journey Behind the Falls."

This tour, one of the attractions on the Adventure Pass, takes you behind the Canadian Falls. There are 3 portals where you can see the water in front of you, slamming down, then spraying back up again. One portal you can go out and be next to part of the Falls. You will get wet, so you might want to... More

The platform next to the falls is amazing and well worth the trip. However the portals are very small and the lines are extremely long. There are 2 portals but everyone stops at the first one and the line backs WAY up:( I suggest you by pass the first portal and go to the second one, much less wait. But... More

In addition to the Hornblower boat ride we took this tour. When you reach the outdoor area the view of the side of the falls up close was brilliant, and it really allowed you to get some good pictures and there's interesting information. However the tunnels which give you a glimpse of water flowing over the top weren't that great... More

The journey behind the falls led to two sections. One that was a let down. It led to a small opening that opened to the water fall. You could not really see much. the second tunnel led to an amazing view of the falls from the side/below. Truly was my favorite view of the entire trip.

The view the "patio" area is great, and makes for some really nice pictures. It was kind of neat to access the area behind the falls, but, literally, it's just torrential downpour of water (impressive in power, but not particularly fascinating to stare at for long). There are some informative signs throughout the tunnel ways, but it's difficult to stop... More
