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.

This was a great way to get wet at Niagara Falls. If you go to the top deck you can stand under the falling water, it is amazing to feel just a portion of the power of this falling water. Don't miss this and enjoy your free water sandals!

We stood in the falls at Hurricane Deck. It was incredible. This was part of our Over the Falls Tour. The stairs might appear over whelming but we not to bad. Definitely worth the time.

Our kids are 12 and 11, and we LOVED the Cave of the Winds! The line was very long but moved fast. We received sandals and a poncho when we got there. I was able to take pictures with my good camera while we were down on the lower levels without getting it wet but kept it covered with the... More

This was our family's favourite Falls experience. We were a little skeptical about the water sandals and the monotone delivery of the elevator operator as we went 175 feet down to the base of the bridal veil falls. But we were amazed by the views and the fact that we could actually stand in the falls at times. It was... More

This was probably my favorite experience at Niagara Falls. To get as close as we did to Bridal Veil Falls was really cool! Going up to the Hurricane Deck is a must and until you stand there with the wind howling and the water falling you really can't imagine what it's like. My kids (8 and 2) were not fans,... More

My husband is like a little kid, he thoroughly enjoyed this. He did the whole experience. I only did part of it as it was too windy and wet for me, lol. It has 60 mph winds and you are standing in the water of the falls on a platform. Suggestion, wear shorts, not jeans, as I wore jeans and... More

By far the best attraction on the American Side of the falls. You get to be the closest to the falls anywhere. You get very wet. Very safe for all ages. Would do it again.

Get up close and personal with the American Falls. Immerse yourself! You need to remove your shoes and replace them with plastic sandals provided as you will ruin your shoes. You should als bring waterproof trousers. The most. Fun is the wettest! Young kids may not like the intensity of the experience.

The cave was destroyed some years ago, but the platforms that they rebuild every year are so close to the bridal veil falls that you will have a hard time facing the falls. A great way to experience the falls up close. ( This is not for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs, so please don't push your elderly parents... More
