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!

Waited for over an hour, and didnt feel it was worth it, a small distance out of town, with a very long wait, for a very quick ride...

Journey out over the falls in a cable car. This car doesn't go too far over the falls although not good if you are afraid of heights. The view is great over what you can see but you are not out there for too long.

We chose to do this because it looked cool. It's super short but you get to see the whirlpool you otherwise wouldn't see. You can also see the locals hanging out down by the bank. If you go up the road on your right is the entrance. It's a super long hike but WELL worth it.

This is an attraction you can easily drive past and it has two vantage points at the end of the cable car across the whirlpool. Both on the main road.
As with all the attractions on the Parkway route out of Niagara Falls it is car friendly and easy to access. You get to the viewing platform for free and yet again the scale of the Niagara River really is stunning.
We watched the Aero Car start off below us and make its way across the whirlpool/bay cut out by the river. The thought of dangling a few hundred feet above swirling waters did not float my boat so we decided to pass. I was really glad we stopped to take a few pics and enjoy the moment. I think it's only about $12 for a return and I would say it is great value for money for another great view of this magnificent river.
We tied in the visit on a day out from the Falls to Niagara on the Lake and it's on the main route.

So was it worth the money?....Of course!...you are on vacation after all!
A little scary to be dangling so high above the river.... Especially after our tour guide informed us that the Whirlpool is over 60 feet in depth !
All in all....A quick trip over the whirlpool with a beautiful view!
