It's a great/powerful view of post fall area. The whirlpool looks great. The Aero car is not roller coaster, it goes slow, gives the same view as you would from standing on land. It's not scary but on cold windy day, it can feel too cold. It's not bad rode bit not on top of my list

This attraction is a must see. It doesn't take too much of your time and you will enjoy a great view of the whirlpool and the Niagara river. The admission cost is relatively inexpensive.

It was a very short wait for the Aero Car and then the trip over the whirlpool and back. It is a fantastic trip. The weather was cool but if you're dressed for it then it's OK. This trip is well worth the price. I would do it again the next time I am in Niagara Falls.

Well it a gondola ride through a canyon over a whirlpool! It is fun and historic with some awesome views of the canyon. A must see and do.

Not a long trip - the line up might be longer. Good old-fashioned entertainment that tickles the tummy with thoughts of disaster (that doubtfully will ever happen) - not for those with serious vertigo, however. They've got rid of the central seating (standing only) and you don't change sides out in the middle anymore. Great perspective of the river -... More

We paid somewhat 14$+ tax per person and the ride was only for 15 minutes with no good view, weather was very cold and couldn't see the whirlpool. They made us wait for almost 30 minutes before the ride. We personally felt it wasn't worth the money at all.

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
