The lady at the front counter was extremely nice to us when we inquired about the trolley passes. My husband remembered about his liberty pass and then showed it to the lady. She quickly reimbursed him his $2 since the liberty pass gets the holder a free ride on the trolley. The views of the Falls from Goat Island were... More

Park is sloppy, dirty, trash EVERYWHERE. Staff are all very rude. When asked questions I got my eyes rolled at. Very crowded. Construction sites have been here for how long?!?!?!? Cave of the winds was fun, I suggest hiring some new staff that are people pleasers if they want to work at a place like this.

You can see everything from the park, you can walk or you can ride the tram. Need to buy tickets for the tram but they are good all day.

the park was under construction when we went, but you where still able to get around with out a problem. I would suggest taking the trolley. the park is HUGE, and during the summer months it gets a little hot. But they have refreshment stands through out the park and you can sit up on the grass in the shade... More

I was here in March for the NCAA tourney and was SO disappointed with a park full of mud, unmoved lawns and fence after fence of sloppy, disregarded construction areas. It was horrible but I dismissed it as a rehab project. Today I returned to find it virtually unchanged. The main park is an embarrassment to this New Yorker, and... More

The park is a nice place to explore. Lots of things to see and do. I do recommend Maid of the Mist to really see the falls from the river. On the observation deck you can see both Niagara Falls and the Canadian Falls. They do have fireworks on Fridays and Sundays on the Canadian side.

Trails are under construction at this time so you can not get close to the river in many spots. This should be great once it is completed.

There is a 5 attraction ticket. The Maid of the Mist and the Cave of the Winds are very worth while. The film is OK. So, those 3 are worth the price of the ticket. I wish I had bypassed the others. The Discovery Center is a joke. The aquarium is very small but has a closeup enclosure for penguins.... More

My Son and I recently walked across the boarder to the US from Canada in Niagara Falls. The US side is predominately State Parks, and provides a different view of the falls. If you want an easy way to visit the parks and see the various vantage points, take the trolley. It was $2 each and allowed you to hop... More
