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!

This was on the top of our families to do list in Niagara Falls. While it was enjoyable, it was a very short ride, therfore I thought priced a little high. We enjoyed the white water walk way more and it was less expensive. Also, try not to get in the center of the car. You will be stuck there... More

This was another part of our Niagara Adventure pass. Definitely a neat experience and great view of the whirlpool. If you are in one of the outside rows, at the halfway point, they let you switch sides so you can get a different view. I know looking at it before we started made me a little nervous but we had...

It is only a short ride across, and you don't get off at the other side, but it was pleasant with great whirlpool views from above and of the river. You cross the border mid river apparently! Pretty cool. You move from one side round to the other so you get good views of both sides, but there is also... More

Visited this in the early 90's so second visit. Don't worry which side of the car, when you get to the other side they guide instructs everyone to walk halfway around the car so you have the view on the other side. I enjoy the bend in the river and seeing the rapids up stream more than the actual whirlpool.... More

A little far off from the falls, but a stop you must take at some point. I think for the shortness of the ride, they should just charge $20 for a couple. You get the same view if you keep going down a little further down river road; For free! Free parking was a bonus.

I had been on the Aero car before but my sister had not. The fellow operating the car was a blast. Really funny and supplied us with a lot of history of the car and the area. The view is amazing. The only item that I think is a problem is the cost of the attraction. For about a 10... More

The Aero car was not running the day we went there due to high winds...don't let that stop you from going behind the gift shop and looking down...it was a great view.

A bit out of the way of the town but worth the effort to get there. Would compare it as better than the Maid of the mist or Hormblower, just don't expect to stay dry.
