There's not much information I could tell you that You don't already know about this attraction. It's world famous, and for good reason! So simple, but so unbelievably fun! They provide free ponchos, but you'll still get wet, and that's okay, that's the appeal, right? Riding the Maid of the Mist is hands down one of my favorite experiences of... More

While the wait was a decent one, there really isn't a cooler way of experiencing Niagara Falls then being on the Maid of the Mist. It's an awe inspiring sight and the roar of the falls gives you a memory that will never diminish. The Falls won't be around forever, and it's definitely a cool story to pass down for... More

Seeing the falls from above is one thing, but seeing them from below and feeling the power of the water and the spray of the falls is something else, and worth getting soaked for. The provided ponchos help a little bit, but let's face it - if you stand near a waterfall you are going to get wet. If worried... More

What a great way to see the Niagara Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls. Go early in the day to avoid crowds. Overall time spent is about 30 minutes on the boat – another 0-30 minutes in line. Efficiently run, with no discounts for seniors, military or students, this attraction packs tourists in for experiencing Niagara Falls with all the... More

Fun fun fun. Get ready to get wet. Very interesting. Long line goes very fast. You will receive a rain poncho which you will need.

Very exciting and fun! Well organized and we felt safe. I didn't think those little ponchos would keep me dry but they did!

They really do pack you into the boat so that they could maximize their returns on each trip, but it is so fun to go up and be soaked with a hurricane of wind from both sides of Niagara Falls. Like most of the reviews have said try to get the upper deck but it really doesn't matter if your... More

We went to Niagara Falls for a romantic little get-away and IT WAS! The Maid of the Mist was so much fun. We had a blast. The falls are absolutely amazing. We took the tour with the different stops (observation deck, the stairs to the Falls......). It was so much fun from start to finish. We laughed a bunch. Our... More

So word to the wise, take cash for parking ranging anywhere from $10 - $30. Go straight back down the path through all the tourist traps to the small 4 ticket booths for the Maid of the Mist. They are behind the Visitor Center. The day we were there you HAD to go through the Center past various kiosks selling... More
