This river walk is actually a short walk on a salt treated deck along the Niagara River. It is so awesome to be just feet above the river where the water is rushing by and crashing on the rocks below creating the highest class rapids known to white water sports. There is a good deal of informational signage along the... More

Once again you take an elevator down to the water's edge to view the catagory 5 rapids. It is a self guided tour so you can spend as much time at each level as you wish. At the base of the elevators, they have history boards which you can read to see people's attempts at crossing the gorge. Some have... More

The money goes back into the Falls $16 to walk down a hallway to go to two access points. Best part was going out to bottom of falls wish there were benches so we could have sat and enjoyed the sounds and sights from that angle ...Price a little High, but still would do this instead of other 3d movie...

When in the Niagara area (not winter) this is a must visit, you really get up close and personal with the thunderous Niagara river. Absolutely stunning beauty. Take plenty on pictures to enjoy later after returning home.

If you are castrophobic then getting there might be an issue! However it is worth the lift ride and tunnels to see the incredible rapids and scenery.

Loved that this was a self-guided walk so we could go at our own pace and stop for a pic or to just enjoy the view. Has some great views of the rapids and its amazing.

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
