This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

Be prepared to get wet! If you go all the way up to the top deck (which you absolutely have to do) you get pelted by the falls, which is so intense. They give you ponchos, but it be careful with any electronics or valuables. It's a must-do for a Falls visit.

Cave of the Winds is a must when you visit Niagara Falls. The experience will leave you speechless and in AWE!!! Put your hands in the Falls, get sprayed from the Falls, take your pictures right up against the Falls, My wife and I didn't want to leave this breathtaking view. Highly recommended.

A must do if visiting the Niagara Falls! Being at the foothills of these magnificent falls is an experience I'll never forget. Make sure to leave camera equipment and any other valuables in the car. You will get wet! They will provide ponchos and some nice sandals to wear keeping your clothes and shoes somewhat dry. While doing the cave... More

Forget worrying about being cold and wet- it's well worth it! The price is very reasonable, they provide everything you need, and you'll never experience anything like it!

We LOVED this attraction! We went at the end of June and arrive at about 3:30pm. There were no lines and walked right up to the elevator and onto the wooden staircase. We decided to use the recommendation to do this attraction before Maid of the Mist for the free sandles. Even with the free poncho, you will get wet.... More
