Owner description: Soar the Great Gorge, high above the racing Niagara River. You'll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool. Sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!

It is just a large basket hanging on cables that takes you across a narrow gorge at a place over the Niagra River. When it gets to the other side, everyone walks half way around to get a different view for the trip back. The whirlpools below are unique. From the basket, people on the ground look only a little larger than ants. It was included in the Red bus tour, otherwise probably would not have found it.

We visited in October and the fall color and brisk weather were great. We did the Whirlpool Aero Car as part of the double-decker bus tour, which I also recommend.

Somewhat (3 miles) away from all the major attractions. It was educational as the car operator explained the cause of the whirlpool and such. The view was nice and the ride was fun.

I really enjoyed the ride. We rode it just last week and there was so much fall color surrounding the whirlpool. The view of the river and the whirlpool are spectacular. It feels very safe. You change sides half way so everyone gets all of the view. I took this ride 2 times, 2 days in a row. The first time I spent too much time taking photos and the second time I didn't take the camera; I just soaked in the view and the experience. I highly recommend this ride. If you get an Adventure Pass there is a coupon for a discount. There are also magazines on the street that have a coupon will a smaller discount than the Adventure Pass. Without a discount, it's worth the cost!!!!

I'm not good with heights, but this was worth the nerves. An amazing but short ride with great views of the white water rapids.
