Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You'll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool. Sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!

Try it

Whirlpool is interesting but not necessarily breath taking. It is on the way to Niagara by the Lake, so take time to stop by and experience it.

So you wait in a really long line to pack into a car suspended high above the whirlpool end of the falls. You go at a slow rate across the gorge and back....15-20 minutes. Got some nice pictures.

great view! Fee Parking! This thing is over a hundred years old, built to last like things used to be. The line is short, the ride is only about 15min but it is included on the package deal. My whole family loved it.

We got on a cable car and went across the Niagara River to the other side and then came back. The total trip was about 10 minutes, and it wasn't anything exciting. Skip it if you're pressed for time.

I was a bit nervous about this venture simply because I do not like heights and generally shy away from cable cars, ferris wheels etc. But this was a delight and well worth the cost and fear potential. You stand in the cable car and you rotate sides when you get to the other side so everyone can have a... More

Very cool experience! We probably wouldn't have done it if it weren't part of a package, but we were glad we did it. Really awesome scenery.

This is a fantastic ride over the river. It's not scary at all! The car is very smooth and the ride operator narrates the trip. Everyone stands and then switches sides so you get great views both ways. The whirlpool rapids are amazing to see and the observation deck from just outside the gift shop is fabulous. This is a...

We were a bit worried it might frighten those in our family with fears of heights, but it did not. We all enjoyed it and the views are spectacular. Be warned that the wind can make it cool, but the trip is a short one. This can be part of an Adventure Pass, which will save you money.

Like many other Niagara area attractions, this is a little overpriced.... But very interesting to see the workings of the aero car. The views are simply amazing! You get the opportunity to ride on one side on the way across and the other side on the way back. The car is open air but you can stand in the middle... More

We did this as part of the Adventure Pass Plus, which we loved. The view is amazing, and the ride is very smooth. It is a relatively short ride, but gives a perfect view of the whirlpool. You will love this even if you are afraid of heights. It's not rickety or scary at all. Awesome!
