What an amazing experience! To be able to get up close to the falls and see and feel the power of the water is something I won't forget. I would say this is a 'must do' for anyone going to Niagra falls!

Nothing like standing up on the Hurricane Deck! Wonderful. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get up and personal with the falls. My husband couldn't make it to the top because of bad leg, but I took video so he could enjoy it, too.

It is not a cave, so don't be fooled by the name! I recommend doing this right off if it is going to be a hot day, you will get nice and wet! You basically walk along part of the bottom edge of the falls, and what a perspective! Take a lot of pictures, wear the shoes and poncho they... More

This is so much fun! You go underneath the waterfall on the Hurricane Deck. You can get amazing views and pictures from here. This is the closest way to see the falls and the whole family can do it! Unique experience! Water rushing down over the falls creating a once in a life time experience! This is the second time... More

...but not until we wanted to. You can purchase this ticket individually or as part of the Discovery Pass. I really like the Discovery Pass package to do the complete tour of the American side, it's a great value. You get free flip flops (they most assuredly do not want them back) to begin your tour. You'll take an elevator... More

Up close to the power of the falls. This and Maid of the Mist is a MUST do. The US side is the best side, see and experience everything.

If you don't mind a little noise, water and stairs, this was a blast for the kids and parents. You were able to walk right up to the base of the falls (on a wooden platform), and really experience it.

Have done this attraction three times. Think the cost and time spent is worth it. Amazing to stand at the base of the falls.
