The time spent in the Horseshoe Falls area was outstanding, as up close and personal as you can get! Get as close to the front up top as you can (which will depend heavily on where you are in line as most people go there first). The entire process, from buying tickets to boarding, was done very efficiently. Also, take time to walk up to the Crow's Nest after. It's a bit crowded so be patient. Lastly, make sure to spend some time at the Observatory before or after as well.

Saw this attraction twice in 6weeks. Thrilling both times. It is a must see if you’re in the park. It really gives a different perspective of the falls

Of all the attractions at the falls this was one of the better values. $25pp kids under 5 free and everyone will love it. Takes you about 20-30 minutes and gets you up close to both American and Canadian falls. You will get wet but it will be fun!
