This attraction is away from the main falls (maybe 10mins north by bus) & is a 45 min ride on a powerful jet boat through the rapids.
Many ppl loved it - you get soaked so swimwear is recommended.
As previous reviews said, you ride around 1 main rough rapid & do a couple of 360s. It's interesting if you don't ride in boats often/ever. All ages were on our trip. Coast was approx $70 per person but it is a once in a while experience. 3.5 to 4 out of 5 stars imo.

This was a cool thing to try, but we wouldn't say that it was worth the money. The boat takes about 50 people per trip. We were expecting to take a ride through different parts of the class 5 rapids and experience some different parts of the river. Basically, they took us to one part of the rapids and circled around about 5 times to take us through the same part again and again. We got wet and the boat did a couple of cool spins, but other than the one area they kept circling back to, the ride was just like riding a speed boat across a calm lake. They showed us the class 6 rapids, but we did not go into them. There was some interesting history they shared and the tour guide got some laughs out of all of us throughout the trip. All in all, if we go back to the area, this would not be something we would take the time to do again.

This was the last thing on our to do list and what a way to end our trip. We had so much fun on this. You get completely soaked. If you are afraid of water at all don't do this. If you can do the last trip of the day, they seem to give you a longer time. I would definitely do this again.

This was the highlight of our trip to Niagara. Was it wet? Oh yes, soaked to the skin, change of warm clothes is a must. Was it wild? Oh yes, a real adrenaline rush as well as a great way to see the river and rapids. This rates as one of the must-dos on your bucket list!

A fun afternoon on the river, though would have preferred to be closer to the front of the boat - can't have it all!
