We were told that this is the only place to see class VI rapids up close in North America. It was pretty but not what I expected. The wooden sidewalk was about 1/4 mile long. We did this because we were there and didn't want to miss anything. We went here first thing in the morning when they opened which... More

Not a must do but if you like seeing the class 6 rapids its a nice walk along the river. The signs say its a nature walk but its not really a nature walk, just a boardwalk path to a couple viewing points of the rapids.

Not the best attraction, but should not be missed as you get an idea of how massive, powerful and large the falls are.

Seen much more interesting rapids before. This is just a nice short walk along the river, on wooden stars.

Really enjoyed being so close to the class 6 rapids. The walkway is really nice with good information posted along the walkway. We did it after we had done the Whirlpool Jet Boat. We got close to them during that ride.

the Water Walk itself was nice- walking along the rapids, river. Nothing spectacular but nice. I gave it 3 stars due the wait to go down. We had the Adventure Pass with a scheduled time and still waited over an hour. They line you up about 30 minutes or more. You wait for 1 old elevator to take maybe 7-8... More

The fury of the falls is incredible but to really experience the pure power, you must visit the lower rapids. You are so close and right at the level of the water where you can really feel the power. It is almost scary!

If it wasn't included in our package, we wouldn't have done it. It was neat to be that up close to the rapids, but there is only one elevator down to water level and back. We got there at a perfect time and still had a slight wait. Upon leaving there was a huge line. I can't say I would... More

This is one of the most spectacular natural attractions in Canada let alone Niagara Falls! The white water boardwalk parallels the short stretch of Niagara River where the water is the roughest! IT's almost entirely whitewater and many of the boiling points are many feet high! A fantastic place for photography and taking in the wonders of God's unique creation!

This was a nice quiet stroll. It was nothing amazing. The views are nice and you do get right near the river, but the wait was long and, for the price, I think I expected a little more wow.
