For us, the best part of the Journey behind the falls wasn't actually being behind the falls. That's kinda cool, for sure, but looking out from behind the falls is like, well, looking into a big bunch of whitewater. Not so much else to say. On the other hand the view from the observation decks is spectacular! Worth the price for me, but not if there is an hour-plus wait. We got right on the elevators so I'll give it a 'Very Good'. It would be well worth it to ask what the wait is like before deciding to get in line.

This was interesting, but I think only one visit was all that was needed. It was cool seeing the falls from a different view though.

The observation deck was the best. Behind the falls all you can see is water rushing over the cave exit. While amazing that a cave could be built under the falls, still just a wall of water. Don't miss the history boards for a interesting history understanding of how people tempt this amazing wonder of the world.

It is true they take you behind the falls, however you are gated off 20 feet from the falls and can just look at the water pouring down. The only plus is they have an oberservation deck literally 10 feet from the falls which is great for photos.

Brilliant idea, you don't get to go far along behind the falls and there are only two small viewpoints but you get to outside right next to the edge of the falls. Great for photo shots.
