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!

It's a fairly short ride but is such an amazing view of the river and gorge. The water colour and rapids are amazing !

It's OK and is a great vantage point over the gorge but its slow going, a bit cramped and not super exciting when you compare it to all the attractions down at the Falls. This is a little out of town. Then again I've never seen an aerocar elsewhere let alone been in one so for being a unique experience... More

nice side trip from the falls or you can get a package deal with a bus. I suggest doing the bus tour as they get you in and out of the attractions quickly

I was only 16 when I went on the Whirlpool Aero Car and it's something I will never forget. Even though it does not do much besides hang over the river just a little ways from the falls, I can still remember the thought of falling down into the only backwards whirlpool in NA.

A great thrill over the gorge with the rapids below. watch as many in the car jump with fear as the cable car "bumps" back to base on it's return!

This ride is a real throwback in time. It is not fancy or extreme. It is just an old time cable car ride over the fall whirlpools. Regardless it is fun. If you buy the Niagara pass, you get to do several sites for less money - I encourage it.

If you are afraid of heights, you may want to skip this one. The Aero Car crosses and returns across the whirlpool created where the Niagara River makes a sharp right bend. The view is spectacular and the guide on the car is very interesting. I really enjoyed this.
