Fun and wet, but they provide you with a rain poncho and rubber flip flops. You get to walk up stairs and stand in a vortex of wind and water, but this is optional. Look for rainbows...they appear and disappear fast.

If you go, make sure to visit the Cave of the Winds - what a flight! To be so close to the Falls was just so amazing, words are not enough to describe this experience. You will get soaking wet so make sure to bring your water proof camera and no make up for the ladies :) For those of... More

This is about as close to the falls that you will get without falling in. Be prepared for wind and water. Must do to complete a visit to Niagara Falls.

This is a must. You should experience this once in your life. It was a free massage since the waterfall hits your body. The park gives you slippers and a raincoat (it's really thin so it's better to bring your own) to keep and wear.

I traveled to Niagara Falls again this June. Last summer I went to the Journey Behind the Falls which was disappointing for the price. The Cave of the Winds is much better! We stayed on the Ontario side (better hotels) but it was worth the time to drive across Rainbow Bridge. The "Cave" is not a cave but several decks... More

This was a fantastic opportunity to stand beneath a part of Niagra Falls safely. We were given a poncho and were able to walk to a platform at the base of Bridal Veil falls. It was fun, exciting, and wet. You could also opt to walk to a platform further from the falls and stay dry.

Beautiful! Take an extra pair of pants; you're likely to get soaked, even with the poncho. Also, a cover for your camera if possible.

We decided to make this our first stop on our visit to the falls. After buying tickets we were directed to a counter where we were given some inexpensive sandals and a plastic sack to place our shoes and socks. This was the first warning. From there we went to the elevator to be taken down to a tunnel which... More
