Definately would do again. Next time at night with lights. The trolley that runs through the park was appreciated.

Best " Water ride" you will ever be on. Rainy day added to the experience and no lines due to it. Bring a towel.

The boat ride was a great experience. The lines were very long once tickets were purchased but moved in an orderly fashion. Boat was crowd d. We were lucky to stand by a railing. The falls are breathtaking!

it was $18.35 for the ticket at a booth at the park. they had a package for 45ish dollars for a more comprehensive ticket package. you might find a deal on that somewhere on line.
