This is the best way to get wet and close to the falls all in one. On a hot summer day it cools you off, but at any time getting the close up feel, sight and sound of the falls is worth this attraction. It is a lot of steps but there are places to rest along the way and... More

If you visit Niagara Falls and you only have one thing to do - The Cave of the winds is it! The attraction is worth every penny and they will give you raincoats and sandles, lockers for your things. You will go under the falls and then out onto a deck where- yes- you will get wet depending on how... More

On a sunny summer day, this is the best experience, and it doesn't cost much! It might seem like a scary idea to get so close to Niagara Falls, but it is just awesome.

You cannot miss this one! Its an absolute must to get wet under the falls, wearing the yellow ponchos... I could really feel how fierce the falls were... and if you are lucky you can see beautiful rainbows as well.

Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it! If you do any paid attraction in all of Niagara Falls, do this! Don't be fooled by the name- the cave collapsed decades ago so now this attraction is really wooden pathways that take you along the base of the American and Bridal Vail falls. Heavy... More

The sound of water was surprisingly high but was pleasing to ears. The falls together with sound and being very near to you was unbelievable. Gallons of water making noise and falling near you is worth seeing in lifetime

This was a great experience. While we were in Niagara Falls we also did the Journey behind the falls and the Maid of the Mist and this was by far our favorite! Everyone should definitely experience it at least once! Wish it was open in March since we are going back!

Cant get closer than this! Tickets are cheap, lines move smoothly. Expect ti get wet so waterproof those cameras and leave your bags behind. I loved this experience. My boyfriend and I had a blast getting into the falls! A great way to experience the power and beauty of nature!

This is a must do if you go to Niagara Falls. I sacrificed my glasses under the water there but still not regretful.

If you have a waterproof camera - bring it (as well as a change of clothes in the car). You cannot go to to Niagara Falls without doing this. I went with family members and never thought one of them would venture out with me to the Cave of the Winds. Afterwards, I think it's one of the best memories... More
