Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You'll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool. Sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!

Over the Water

We didn't ride this, but saw it. Looked really nice riding over the water. Saw the whirlpool, was pretty cool.

You see the same thing from the rims just a different view. A little pricey for a 10 minute ride, A little history of the ride would have added to the trip.

Great photo opportunity, halfway through everyone swaps side so you get an all-round view. It is also a reasonable walk to the white water walk, so these can easily be combined

We visited the Whirlpool Aero Car attraction as part of a tour. We did not have the option to take a trip on the Aero Car on the tour but once my wife and son saw it I knew we would be back the next day! Let me state that I am very leery of heights and was not thrilled... More

An opportunity to take an open cable car over the river, turning round and coming back. Is lovely opportunity to view & photo the river and the whirlpools below quite tame & calm.

This is a relatively quick ride over a section of the river where whirlpools can be seen. The views from the Aero car are beautiful as you ride from one side of the mountain to the other and back.
