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!

We had been to the falls before but had never tried this attraction. It was well organized and run. The guide even offered to take pictures for us. You travel over the whirlpool of the gorge. We enjoyed the view and the ride.

The line wasn't that long on a Friday afternoon, and the weather was perfect for mid October. The view is breathtaking and every safety precaution is taken. Well worth the admission price, especially for families with kids.

Took the aero car because one of us needs a knee replacement and couldn't do the wet walk over the rapids or behind the falls. Easy ride in the cable car over the whirlpool beyond the falls. Short ride but great view.

The Whirlpool Aero Car was a short drive away from the town centre. As we did not have a car that day, we were able to take the People Mover. The attraction was a bit pricey and not included in the Adventure Pass. I understand...More
