AMAZING experience! Worth the price! Bring a complete change of clothes - you will need it! The video that you can purchase after your trip is worth it as well!

I've been to Niagara Falls about 6 times by now, and the most recent time was the first time we did the jet boat - it was a very fun experience. Bring a complete change of clothes, underwear too because you get absolutely soaked; and maybe leave it til the end of your day because you look like crap when you get out - makeup running, gross hair, etc... you get the idea. They do have another boat that's closed that doesn't get you wet. We got put through devil's hole rapid I want to say about 4 times... I don't know if they do that for everyone but we had birthdays and a bachelor party on our boat so we may have received the special treatment. Thank GOD it was warm that day because with that water hitting us every time I was absolutely shivering. So make sure the weather is halfway decent that day, and at least sunny because that will warm you up too. If you want to get EXTRA soaked, sit up front, but really there's no avoiding it....

Overall, a good experience and a must do in Niagara.

We did the covered boat since it was drizzling. What a fun time-you come right into the rapids after cruising down the river. Once at the rapids the boat spins in a 360 degree with the water surging over the boat. If you like fast rides this is one to take! I would go back again!

Pricey, but worth it! You pay at the Aerocar and get picked up by a bus and taken up river to the drop off point, about 20 minutes away along a scenic drive. There are a lot of rules.... under 100 lbs... you can;t sit in the front. Kids under 12 in the middle and toward the back and they had to where ponchos. No strapless shoes... you WILL lose them! You WILL GET WET .... Absoltely SOAKED. NO way around it. It lasts about 45 minutes of white water rafting on adenaline! Thru Devils Hole and up to the whirlpool. You get to see the power up close and personal. It is awesome! Be prepared to buy your pics and videos after the ride. Highly recommended for thrill seekers! We did 3 360 degrees spins on the water during our adventure! Mother natures rollercoaster!

This was one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done! The ride was so much fun. It takes you up the cool rapids between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The first two rows are the best in the house. As far as what to wear, I would recommend a swimsuit and a t-shirt, the best would be a Dri-Fit or something that will not absorb water. BRING A CHANGE OF CLOTHES! There are free lockers where you can place personal belongings, clothes, etc. It is a very fun ride that you will get soaked on. A poncho and sweater are provided, but for no apparent reason. If you sit up front, a wall of water doesn't even come close to describing the force of the waves coming in.
