A nice cool break on a sweltering day. There is a pavilion where one can stop and enjoy the sight and sounds of the Rapids, cooling off with the breeze. An easily walkable trail leads to a spot just beside the water, no entry to the water of course. Pleasant and a nice nature break easily accessible by the city's... More

My wife parents and I really enjoyed the river walk all by itself the rapids are impressive and it gives you an up close view of the water volume. On our way back to the elevator my father made conversation with employee Travis I cant say enough how amazing this interaction was. Travis gave us insider information about the falls... More

It is nice walk and gives you a great view of world class rapids. But it is not a "must do". The boat and behind the Falls are "musts"

A lovely walk right alongside the Niagara River just downstream from the actual falls. The strength of the water has to be seen to be believed - awesome. Interesting facts on boards along the walk. Easy boardwalk surface to walk on, with steps leading down closer to the river just off the boardwalk so you dont have to go down... More

this is a shortish walk along the rapids accessed by one lift from the top. What a shame we had to wait SOOOO long in the sunshine for this attraction. Leave enough time to queue for about 30 mins in busy times. No shade whilst waiting. Would be good to have a covered area to wait. Many people becoming fractious.... More

Wow. Really, if I had to submit a review in one word, that would be it. Looking at Niagara Falls from the top, you can see the rush of the water and think, ok, that's impressive. But when you see it ripping by you at eye level going at speeds of 40 mph and slamming into the rocks, sending spray... More

No where can you get so close to so much power and force In nature. All the water coming over the Niagara Falls is channeled through a surprisingly narrow gorge, at a remarkable speed. These are Class 6 rapids. Having been to Niagara Falls several times over the years, this was the first time we'd experienced the speed of the... More

This was a very beautiful walk right next to the rapids. Just amazing to see that rush of water. If you don't stop to take pictures every 5 minutes like we did it might take about 15 minutes to walk back and forth. I thought it was kind of expensive given that it is just about 1/4 mile trail. It... More

First, I wasn't sure why we needed a reservation since it's just a self-guided tour but you need to use elevator to go down and they need to control the number of people visiting there and also they want ticket sales.There is WEGO stop right near the entrance of the tour. There is a Asian temple nearby so some people... More
