My wife and I did this on a whim three years ago when we were in Niagara on the Lake, and could not wait to take our adult (24/26) there on this latest trip to the Falls. This ride is a blast! Fast, fun and scenic. Not for the feint at heart, you get splashed and soaked and if you are not careful to keep your mouth closed, you will take home a bit of the river in your stomach. The August water was warm, but we enjoyed it equally in mid-June last trip. If it's at all cool, wear the slicker they provide. The wind on the trip back and a wet tee--shirt can be a cool combination. Anywhere in boat looks fun, but we sat up front. Lot's of fun there, but further back you have a little more time to anticipate the big wave that's about to wash over you. No one escapes being soaked, though. Younger kids had to ride in the back, but were several on our trip all of whom loved the ride.
Note, new Niagara Falls location by the Aerocar does involve a bus ride, which left about 35-40 minutes prior to booked ride time. Make sure you arrive on time (45 minutes early) or you will miss bus. Definitely more convenient that the N-O-T-L location i you are staying at the falls. Can take People Mover if needed, for one thing, plus less of a ride back and forth in the boat (which can be cool as described). There are lockers at the facilities to store your valuables and a changing area. Make sure to watch your video.
Definitely experience the Niagara River class-5 up close and personal
