Reviewed February 24, 2012

Taking a tunnel a few miles underwater to get to and from Canada is definitely an amazing experience.

“Try to Avoid this Attraction...”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

....unless you like the smell of fumes, love long lines of traffic and don't need a bathroom stop for a long time. There is nothing pretty about this experience.

“Fun and Scary at ther same time!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

The tunnel goes under the Detroit river to Windsor. It's fun to go through but then you think about where you are and it can be scary especially if you are backed up and stopped. You can tell where the US ends and Canada starts the tiles all the sudden become cleaner. LOL.
