The elevator ride down to the waterlevel was pretty cool as was the experience of being so close to the water when it is moving as fast as it was. Was a cool experience but not something I would be eager to see again (I mean once you have seen water you have seen water).

The only reason I gave this attraction 2 stars is because of its novelty. There isn't much to see (besides lots of water) and you're crammed into a narrow hallway (that stinks) with lots of other cattle that don't seem to want to move.

This is something to see for sure. I don't remember the cost to visit here but it is very reasonable. The river here is very narrow and the speed of the water is amazing. You figure, all the water coming over both the Horseshoe and American Falls has to pass here. The rapid areas you will see will show you... More

Walk along the Niagara river, following the rapids away from the falls. Nice, well kept path and the walk really gives a sense of how quickly the water travels along this part of the river. Will require a bus ride for most as is a fair distance from the main attractions.

The water travels down stream from the falls along the length of the Niagara River and travels through the Whirlpool Rapids at White Water Walk. The views of the rapids and the noise the water makes it sound like the ocean. I have been to a number of Class 6 rapids and the Whirlpool Rapids are great example of the... More

We bought a Niagara Parks Adventure Pass which included entry to the rapids. The WeGo bus green line also stops right outside this attraction. You enter via the gift shop and descend in an elevator to a tunnel built within the cliff. You walk through the tunnel and exist right beside the Niagara river, where a boardwalk will lead you...

The view behind the horseshoe fall is must. You can't get nearer to the falls as there. Incredible to see the waters coming down. You get an idea how the falls are eroding the rocks. And be prepared to get wet.

The rapids give you an idea of the power & force of the Niagara river. You are close, it's free, takes about 30 minutes. Get the WEGO stop.

Being able to be close enough to such tremendous power was in itself exhilarating. To hear the roar and feel the spray, and to " measure " the height of the swells, made me feel like a very small entity in nature, a GOOD thing. ☺️
