One of my travel books said the Reversing Falls would win the award for the lamest attraction in Canada, but we didn't think it was quite that bad. Personally, we'd put Magnetic Hill in the category of worst attraction ever (not the park, just the...More

Finally we were able to watch reversing falls . You need to check the time on Internet so you can actually enjoy it. It is an attraction that we want to do it, but only one time.

Although the time to get from low tide to high tide is long, during the day you see the dramatic effect the tides have in the Bay of Fundy at Reversing Falls. My favorite time is during slack tide, when the water is unsure of...More

I thought Hopewell rocks was the better of the two. Reversing falls is cool, but to see it at its best you have to time it completely correct. Hopewell rocks are similar with having to look at the time, but it has a lot... More
