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!

Beautiful, but crowded

We went in the middle of the day-that was a mistake. There were quite a few people packed into the car, but the view was beautiful.

This was a nice view and we were able to see the whirlpool jet boats which we decided to go on after watching them from the aero car.

This wasn't the best attraction that we did in Niagara Falls but it was interesting. The whirlpool below is very active and it's neat to see it from the vantage point that the aero car provides.

As advertised, it is a hundred year old Niagara ride. Not worth the price, but despite that, it gives a good view of the whirlpool.

This came with our Adventure Pass, and I'm glad it did. This was really fun. It's basically a cable car over the water. Every spot in the car is a good seat. Everyone can see!! Then, mid-way through the ride,when you are going back, they had everyone switch sides so you could see what you missed on the way out.... More

Just watching from the balcony near to admission boarding was spectacular. You will be able to see what the jet boats do when they come into the whirlpool for an up close view. FYI, American side is the only Daredevils into the class six falls. The Canadian side plays it safe and does not enter the class six as it... More

For myself and my two girls (ages 5 and 8) this was a thrilling and beautiful ride over the river. The color of the river and the land around it is an amazing sight to see. We felt adventurous crossing the river like people have been doing for the past 100 years!

Went with my family, and we had to wait for the high winds to die down. Once we did get on, it was a really cool trip, with great pic opportunities.

This was a fun ride. It didn't take very long to go over and back. You get to see the whirlpool directly underneath you. This is a part of the Activity Pass. If we hadn't purchased the pass, we might have still taken this historic cable car.
