The falls are just incredible. What more is there to say? The park is well maintained (although a lot of construction going on at the moment), the trolley service is great, the park rangers very friendly.

Great venue, Falls views are spectacular. If you get a trolley ticket for a few bucks, you can spend the day hopping on and off the bus all day to visit things like the Bridal Falls, the Three Sisters etc. Maid of the Mists was awesome, so happy we did this.

Very vast area. One day is not enough if you really want to enjoy. The hop on hop off service is a boon. Take your time and enjoy.

View is not very good from this side, but you can get really close to the falls and feel the roar & mist. Best part is the Moon island - you are basically standing between two falls.

Not bad park, but Canadian Niagara park is amazing place. Better go there to see the Real Niagara Falls

If you're planning to check out the falls from both the American and Canadian sides, DEFINITELY do this side first! The American side is basically...on top of the falls, so you can only really get a sort-of sideways look at them; on the Canadian side, you get a full-on "oh my GOD" view. Do this side first; that way, you... More

Canadian side of the fall are much more spectacular than the USA side. There is good value on the multi pass ticket. The bus service could have been better, but we were visiting slightly out of season.

It was unbelievable how close you get to the falls! The park was beautiful even on a cloudy day. The walking trails were well kept.
