the activity itself is a must on the US side. You get pretty close to the falls and get ready to get wet. The walk to get there is however loooong and indications are missing (but that is outside the activity itself). With the entrance, you get a pair a sandals and a pancho! we went with kids of 2...

I have been to Niagara Falls many times but this made me feel as if I was really seeing it for the first time. My husband, son and myself felt this was the best thiing that we have ever done at Niagara. It is a must do!! You are so close. You go from the tiny trickles of waterfalls to... More

Got to experience the beauty and the power of the falls . You get wet despite your hooded poncho, but I did not mind at all. It was exhilarating.

This is a must do for anyone travelling to Niagara. This tour takes you closest to the falls. We spent a good hour or two at this place, got completely drenched in the falls and was absolutely the best part of our Niagara visit!!

Outstanding experience! Loved it! It has little to do with a cave, except that one passes through a tunnel between the elevator and the start of the steps and platforms. Lousy, misfitting sandals are provided and a sign says states that one must wear them. We found this not to be true and wore our athletic sneakers. Had we known... More

Cave of the Winds was the most fun and the best value of our two trips to Niagara Falls! We went when it opened at 9 am on a Sunday and the line was very small. For $12 per adult we got to spend as much time as we wanted on the decks of bridal veil falls! The hurricane deck... More

If you want to appreciate the falls, do Cave of the Winds. When I heard that we were going to be "several feet" from the falls, I thought that the attraction would be honestly kind of dumb. I was completely wrong. The water that ricochets off the rock above the hurricane deck is so intense that you will have to... More

Still a good value and a unique experience. We've been visiting Niagara Falls since the 1960's with family and friends. The visit to the Cave of the Winds this year was as good as my memories! The wait was reasonable and did not seem overly long, and there was no one urging us to hurry once we made it down... More
