“A true thrilling rude on up to. Class 5 rapids.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

We went on a beautifully sunshiny day. Even with all the gear provided, don't plan on getting off dry. If you like the water you'll love this experience. My only complaint, and not sure how this could have remedied, was that in the back of the boat , and at the speed we were going, we missed much of the narrative of our guide. Would advise to try to sit up in the first few rows. However, plan on get the wettest here as well.

“Most excellent, and yes even in the back you will get!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

This was our family 1st time to Niagara Falls; we saw this advertised online and and said let's try it.
It was most awesome. The 5 of us were in the back row and we all got soaked; they took us round and round. And round and round again in the rapids ; even sped around; I was so impressed; male tour guide was hilarious and definitely was his calling; we are coming back next year;my 9 year old was like wow; definitely worth the money and most highly recommend it to everyone going to Niagara Falls; they make a video,but unless your up front or looking at the rear camera not worth buying ( only negative part) ; enjoy; free locker to store your stuff; but your free parking is right next to facility

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

After the instructor is done telling you the safety rules I suggest trying to get first in line to get your life jacket because then you get front row seats on the boat which is the only way to get a good video of your experience !!!!! First you go to the aero car and than a buss will take you to the whirlpool jet which is included in your package. The ride was amazing I was smiling the hole time I had a blast. It really depends on the driver of the boat how fast your ride is. Either way it will be a fun and bump ride with waves that come right over you ! Overall this was one of my favorite experiences in Niagara falls and my other favorite experience was Greg Frewin's magic show I HIGHY suggest you get tickets for both these events when visiting !

“Absolute Riot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is an absolute must...as long as you don't have any young children under six or so - they cannot go. You will be SOAKED but it is worth every penny!! It a great time and would do it again! Bring dry clothes so you can change afterward and you will have a blast.

“Great activity with your teenagers...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

1st - you're going to get wet. Soaked (they have an enclosed boat, but why bother...).
Definitely a great thing to do on a hot day. You need a change of clothes.
2nd - this is like a derailed, untethered amusement park ride. There are some cool rapids on the downside of Niagara Falls, some huge, and the jet boat has 2 loaded engines to power upstream through waters that you'd normally be pretty concerned about negotiating.
Plus, the boat captains are quite skilled and execute some 360 maneuvers in addition to working through the rough water.
Definitely fun, great activity for in-between kids that maybe aren't interested in long sight-seeing tours.
