Note: This attraction has a timed admission and unlike the other parts of the package tour, they do check your time before letting you in, as they need to space out the crowd due to the difficulty getting in and out with a single elevator car. If you need to change your time, go to the gift shop inside and... More

You walk along beside the river with huge class 6 rapids close by! A very unique experience. You can see why no one can float these rapids.

We really enjoyed this walk. An elevator takes you down to the start of the boardwalk and then you have about a 1/4 mile walk along Class 6 rapids. It was not crowded when we went so we were able to enjoy the sounds of the water. There are several sets of stairs leading down to viewing areas closer to... More

To get that close to the river and the rapids is awesome! It's worth the few dollars to take the elevator down. We skipped the more expensive, artificial excursions (boats, helicopters) to be closer to nature. Well worth it.

Next to the falls themselves this is the most powerful and impressive natural attraction. You must get a time to visit. They control the number of people who are down on the walk which is a good thing. They pace the visitors so that you can really enjoy.

This was a beautiful and very scenic walk way built right next to the white waters of the Niagara Falls raging river. Part of our tour so not sure if there would be a fee. So pleasant to see all that fresh clean white water. Loved it and it was a very easy walk down to the river or return... More

As apart of a tour package we booked with our hotel, we received free tickets to the White Water Walk, so we decided to go. It was totally worth it. It is amazing to see the power and force of the rapids. The rapids are amazing and beautiful to look at. The walk is very peaceful and relaxing to do... More

This was such a surprise. Who new there were class 6 rapids. I'd only heard of 1-5. 17 foot waves. Go early in the day. There is only one elevator and there can be a really long line to get down to the river. Don't miss this!
