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 doesn't take much time to participate in this activity. You go over the whirlpool and back again. This activity was part of an activity package for us, I doubt that I would do it if I were paying for it as a solo excursion. However, it does give nice views of the whirlpool and you do go in between... More

It's just a short, out-and-back ride across a fairly short distance, but it's nice way to get a good view straight back up the raging river and straight down onto the whirlpool. When I first did this many years ago, the commentary included a bit about how any one of the steel cables on its own would be able to... More

I wasn't quite sure what to expect but for what I paid to ride the cart it was slight dissapointment. The view wasnt to spectacular.

The views from the aero car are quite nice, but don't expect to see raging torrents or waterfalls. The whirlpool was OK. Being that far up above the water was interesting, but all the good views are from one side of the car. Fortunately, they have the people on the car switch sides halfway through the ride so everyone gets... More

Did this as part of the WeGo package. The bus drops you right off out front. The trip takes about 10 minutes (both ways) and is an interesting view of the whirlpool. Not sure we would have made the trip out just to do this, but it was included on the WeGo package we purchased so we figured why not.... More

I think the whirlpool area of Niagara is so beautiful. It's tranquil to look at, and the water looks so refreshing. What better way to view the whirlpool than taking the cable car? Spanish-made, it's safe, sturdy, and offers fantastic views.

Didn't ride the Aero Car. Seemed like a lot of money for not much. But I highly suggest visiting the location. The Whirlpool is a beautiful end to the rapids.

This was just OK. I suggest buying the ticket package with WEGO. Their bus system is fantastic. It's jump on jump off and is wonderful. One of the packages includes a two day bus pass. As for the aero car, it was just OK. You do travel over the whirlpool but I think just watching from an observation deck was... More
