Go slow. Stop and absorb the powerful feeling of the "Mighty Niagara". Descend with tact and "earn the burn" upon your return. My daughter and I have done it / loved it. A fabulous return of your investment... take it in.

This experience was very special, a must try every time you go to the Niagara. We could just stand and watch the rapids for a whole day for their raw ferocity and power.

Class 6 rapids up close. Fairly peaceful. In the off season, as a local, I love just going down for a walk on the board walk and watching the water.

This is well worth the money. When you walk out of the walkway onto the boardwalk you will be amazing at the power of the water. Everyone can see the falls which are impressive. However to see the water so close its breathtaking. Definitely check...More

We had a great time on this walk. There are several sections with stairs and the walk is similar to a boardwalk. Not great for those with strollers or for those with difficulty ambulating. I would suggest planning to enjoy the views from the first...More
