It was the most amazing thing ever. The water from the falls rains down on you like a shower and you leave drenched, but it was so worth it. DO NOT TAKE CAMERAS, PHONES, OR ANYTHING ELSE ELECTRONIC!!!! But this is the best view of the falls next to the Maid of the Mist. A must do in Niagara!!!!

I liked the blue rain coats and borrowed slippers but they don't keep you dry! The cost was less than twenty bucks so it was definitely worth it. Keep in mind it isn't a cave, it is a boardwalk down to the base of the falls. Definitely worth the time to take it all in!

Might as well take a visit as it's in the tourist ticket pass price. The line seems to always be long. Hey, at least you get a nice pair of cheesy disposable shoes!

It wouldn't be niagara without vision the caves. You get to see the falls in a different light, get to stand under the falls and learn about the history of the falls. It's well worth it.

There are several must see things when visiting the Falls. The tour behind the falls is definitely one of them. There isn't too much down there, but the pictures and memories alone are with the price of admission.

This attraction is better than the more famous Maid of the Mist boat ride. That take you in an elevator down below the falls and you get to stand nearly at the base almost under the falls themselves. You can stand dry at a distance or walk into the mists and feel the rush of the winds and heavy spray.

We live in this area. We love to take visitors on this adventure. The people who run the tour do a great job of maintaining the venue. It is exhilarating to stand on the wooden steps directly in front of the bridal vail falls. You can't get any closer. Nature at its most magnificent. And it is on the American... More

This is a good site to visit and a must do when in the New York location. It was rather crowded and a long line to get down. But once down by the bridal falls it is a magnificent site. You will get wet when walking around and in the falls. But the chance to feel the power of the... More

Loved it, loved it, loved it. You will get wet (but you are given a mack and sandals so we managed to keep our clothing dry) best to during warm summer months. do not go to Niagara without experiencing this.

This place is one of the two things that you can do in the American side,( besides the little boat) The other one is the observatory , but they all three are closed during winter Be prepare to get Wet, they give you a Rain poncho and sandals, so is a big hit that you are going to get wet!!!!!...
