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!

Good way to spend some time if travelling around near Niagara. The car crosses the river suspended over the fast flowing river and whirlpool it creates.

I was very hesitant to ride this 99 year old, almost 100 this summer, Antique Aero Car over the white Rapids and whirlpool in the Niagara River. It's scary watching it move from one side to the other side. But it was so fun, I'm glad I got over the fear and did it. It was beautiful and the guide... More

Fun for the whole family unless you are afraid of heights! Great way to get a different perspective of the river. Got some beautiful photographs!

This 99 year old cable car is fun to ride and a great way to see the whirlpool. The wait in line was not long at all, as a matter of fact it was the shortest line of all of the falls attractions.

Although the wait can be long we can recommened this trip accross in the Aero Car you get to view the river below from a very different aspect than from a normal point of view it was a warm clear day and we had really clear views looking at the river as it changed direction right underneath us.in the Whirlpool.

Nice view from the car and they rotate people once reached another shore, so you'll have a chance to look both ways. And that car is 100 years old :) Amazing! We kinda expected to see a larger whirlpool, but actually it's a bunch of small ones. Still really good views

We got off the wego bus to take a look at the whirlpools without taking the gondolas. The whirpools were pretty impressive but I did not see the need to take a gondola to see them. I was very happy with the view from the waiting area.

Very cool that you are suspended over the whirlpool. You get to see both sides as the move you halfway through. The whirlpool is very cool. The car was turning 99 years old :)
