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.

I was a little apprehensive at first. The power of the falls and the height was scary to me from afar, but once you get there it is an awesome experience. Felt safe and it is self guided so you can do as much or as little as you deem good for you. The entire park was a beautiful place.... More

People kept telling us to go and experience the falls this way. Kind of skeptical plus we read the wait can be looooong. We went at 7:30 on a Sunday night. Perfect! They give you these silly looking sandals to wear be glad to have them because your own shoes would be soaked. They also give you a poncho to... More

Cave of the Winds-- especially the Hurricane Deck-- was by far our absolute favorite part of our short visit in Niagara! We liked it even more than Maid of the Mist! Sure we came out of there drenched despite the ponchos, but that's probably our faults considering we wanted to leave our hoods down on the hurricane deck! (Do it!... More

We really enjoyed this adventure! They give you sandals and a pancho and there's a lot of walking. Enjoy every minute, but DO NOT TAKE A TOUR! Go on your own. Pay the $10 parking. We were rushed from this by our tour guide and I would've loved to have taken my time here.

This attraction allows you to get up-close and personal with the falls. Be prepared to get wet!!! The proximity to the water brings out the giddy little kid in everyone. Just go enjoy it! The line was long, but it only took about 30 minutes to get down to the bottom via the elevator. You will need to be able... More

Absolutely LOVE it!!!!!!! Best feature of the falls!! Walking up to the Hurricane Deck and feeling the force of the water is a once in a lifetime type of experience, one that everyone should experience.

Always very exciting, this is one of the to-do activities at Niagara Falls for children. Although we were there at the height of the tourist season, the wait was not too long and whole process handled quite efficiently

cave of the winds was a great experience for all of us the teens loved it along with us old folks, it would not be good for anyone having trouble with their legs as there are lots and lots of steps but if you are up for it, it is great
