Owner description: This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

Great way to see the Falls up close and personal. My kids loved it! Be prepared to get wet. Don't worry, they give you ponchos to wear.

Wear the shoes they give you... You'll need them. And only bring gear that can withstand a lot (!) of water.

The walkway was amazing and took you right next to the Falls! Don't miss this but bring dry clothes. It's almost impossible to stay dry.

The water runs right under your feet! Standing just a few feet from the falls on the Hurricane Deck is pretty amazing. You can hear and feel the power of the water. We went down after sunset when the falls were lit up. Be prepared to get wet!

The whole experience was fun. They give you sandals and ponchos you can take home. You take an elevator down and back up. It is a short walk up to the falls. The Hurricane Deck is awesome! Wanted to keep going back. I had a water proof camera that let me take action photos and videos. I did have some papers in a tied plastic bag under my rain poncho and they still got wet. It was well worth it. They do have some food right next door at the Top Of The Falls Restaurant that was great. If you go on Luna Island you can look right down at the hurricane deck and see other people going through the adventure.
