queue at maid of the mist?

Hi,

my wife and I are planning to visit the Niagara Falls at the

end of May. As far as I understand the cheapest option to get from

Buffalo Intl. Airport to the falls are the NFTA Metro busses.

Of course they are not very fast, so we would arrive at the falls

only around noon.

My question is: is it possible to get tickets for the Maid of the Mist

at noon for the _same_ day? Are there usually a lot of people waiting

for tickets (on the American side)?

thx,

andi

you can always get tickets for the same day. the us side always has a shorter wait, simply because more people are on the canadian side. the boats also launch from the us side 1/2 hr longer than the canadian side everyday.

The wait may be long if coming on a weekend, but tickets are readily available throughout the day. Also, the Maid stays open longer on weekends...
