This was worth the money. Speeding up the river to the class 5 rapids was fun. But that is where it just began, going into the rapids was fun. No matter how many water proof layers you wear, you will be soaked to the bone. I typically get motion sick, but I had no problems on this ride. I would... More

The set-up of this place was a little confusing, maybe just because it was busy when we were there. You sign in at the location, get a little run-down of the process, and then get kitted out in lifejackets and rain coats. Do yourself a favour and just dress to get wet - go in a bathing suit and flipflops... More

This was so much fun! We went on the Jet Dome tour,as we didn't want to get soaked in Octobers 60 degree weather. We were able to see many sights from a new wonderful perspective. Highly recommend!

This tour is a must for all ages. Your tour starts off with a detailed safety seminar. They provide all the gear you need. They also provide gear that will keep you warmer in cooler weather. Lockers are available for your belongings. We were an industry group of 54. The anticipation leading up to the departure sets the stage for... More

This was a fun trip, and our kids loved it, but I was under the impression we would see the Falls (from a great distance, obviously). You do not, not so much as a glimpse. It may be my fault for having a different impression, but even on the map they have in their offices it looks as though you... More

Great fun trip. Make sure to just wear bathers as you get drenched . First hit by 4 foot (1 metre) wave right across the boat. Feels like you have just been hit by a truck. Really cleans out your sinuses. Then a wave passes by inside the boat as the water rushes past trying to get out the back... More

This is the first time my family (wife, kids ages 10 and 11) did a high-speed jet-boat ride, and the experience was the best, by far, among all attractions around Niagara Falls. By all means make the 25-30 minute drive (the latter half very scenic through wine country) to the Niagara-on-the-Lake location; there are 2 other launch points, but this... More

SO worth the beautiful drive! The boat ride was a blast! People on there from 10 to 70 and every age in between. The captain went up and down the falls (class 5) about 5 times. The tour took about an hour. Bring a change of clothes and a towel - you WILL get soaked!

This was our second time doing this tour. Used Niagara on the Lake location b/c it was scenic too. Josiah and Capt. Sean were fabulous ! You can get discounted tickets by looking on website. Current one: WEB2013 will give you $7.50/ticket off. Or if you go to the Niagara Falls Ont. location and reserve a tour before 11 a.m.... More
