We waited an hour but it was worth it. When you are climbing up to the Hurricane Platform you can reach right over the railing and put your hands in the Bridal Veil falls. I drank the water. The view is awesome!

As you climb the stairs into the water of the falls, the force of the water gets extreme. When you reach the top platform you feel like you are in gale force winds with the water pounding at you. You really have to hang on to the railings, but they provide you with sandals that grip the stairs quite well.... More

For $12 you get to climb around on wooden scaffolding next to Bridal Veil Falls and get soaked. They give you a rain parka and sandals for protection. And you will need them! You can walk through the whole thing in about 10 minutes, but since you are at Niagara Falls you can't miss this opportunity.

To be just under the falls where you feel the power of water descending on you was incredible. We got to see also a beautiful rainbow! I could have staid there for hours just feeling the mist on my face. Just wonderful!

My boyfriend and I went on a tour which included this spot, and it was a lot of fun. The wait in line was about an hour and a quarter, but we expected as much on a weekend. We were only on the walkways for about 10 minutes (you can stay as long as you want) due to tour timing... More

After reading the reviews for this before our trip, we took the plunge!! haha. It was a nice way to see the falls from below. They give you a plastic poncho and fun strap on sandals (many people wore them all day). The boardwalk is re-built every spring and is an easy walk and has minor steps ( 4-5 each... More

Well worth the 12$ for this attraction!!! You can take as long as you want to walk around. Yes the ponchos and sandals are goofy but who cares... you will need them especially if you like getting wet and you will. Go on the deck!!! We had a blast!!!!! Great to be so close up to the falls.

This was a great tour. If you've never see a waterfall close up this is your chance. Warning!!!!! Wear shorts!!!!! Your legs will get wet. My jeans dried but I wish I had had shorts. For you engineering types, look at the walking structure, they build it new every year and take it down at the end of the season... More
