Spent two days visiting the park. It was disappointing to find that construction to upgrade the Horseshoe Falls blocked our access to the great views we'd anticipated, but the rest of the part was well laid out with lots of other good places to see the falls. The ride of Maid of the Mist was just breathtaking! Cold mist, powerful... More

So much to do. The Falls of course on Maid of the Mist or go behind the Falls too. Lots of places to walk or have a picnic. Food is CRAZY expensive so bring your own. The area around the park isn't too nice so I wouldn't plan a long visit. Fun walk from the park into Canada too.

Located just off of Downtown, the park offers ample parking and is situated right where the action starts. Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds, breath taking views of all the Falls, all at your finger tips. If your spending the day, get the wrist band to ride the Trolley between attractions.

There was so much to do in this park. We did Maid of the Mist, Goat Island, and the Gorge Trail and several visits to the falls--day and night. The illuminated falls were beautiful! The park staff was very friendly and helpful. Restroom facilities kept very clean.

I went on this trip with 3 9yr olds, 15yr old, and 5adults...The park is so beautiful and nature like. We did the touristy stuff like the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds. Definitely worth the wait in line for the Cave of the Winds. The trolley ride is only $3 for an all day wrist band.... More

Here, you have the Horseshoe and American Falls. Of course. Beside that, though, you also have the Maid of the Mist dock, remnants of the Honeymoon Bridge, the Rainbow Bridge, an unused (?) American dock, and a Canadian power company (the latter two being some pretty cool giant monstrosities). And in between all of that, there is a nice peaceful... More

Great experience for the whole family. A lot of walking, as it is a large park, but worth it. Rode the Maid of the Mist and also did the Cave of Winds and they were both great. Would recommend these to everyone. Only downside was expensive ballpark type snacks and dirty bathrooms. Also, take advantage and take your passport and... More

The Discovery Pass is definitely the way to see all the attractions for the best value ticket. Don't miss the IMAX Theater for a great film about the history of the Falls and the various daring stunts that have been performed. Aquarium is great and the sea lion show is very good indeed. Discovery Center is tired and rather boring... More
