We were here for a working tour and the place is so incredibly awesome!!! The music that constantly plays wherever you are on the site is so nostalgic and magical - feels like a Disney experience that recreates turn of the century charm and sense...MoreThank you so much for this review. It captures the magic we hope to bring to our visitors. Happy you had a good time.

Cave of the Winds

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.

Reviewed By Clearwell - Cheshire

This was unbelievable! The Canadian version is quite sedate and respectful. The American version is up close and personal, and actually in the Falls!! So much so that it hurts!!

A bit of a queue, maybe two hours (late morning), but so worth it.

You get absolutely soaked, like you've had a shower. Watch your footing.

It is unreal. Best thing we did at Niagara, on both sides. Do it

Martin's Fantasy Island

Reviewed By Kay G

Our family had seasons passes here for many years, and enjoyed frequent visits to the park. We visited the park for the first time since the new ownership this past week, and were impressed with the changes we could see in the park and operations. The park was much cleaner - especially the eating areas and food operations.

Niagara Falls

Three magnificent falls, two American and one Canadian, mark the point at which the Niagara River rumbles over the Niagara Escarpment.

Reviewed By GreeneLantern - Brunswick, Ohio

If you haven't been here you're missing out. A couple of hints though. Its 3.75 to cross into Canada and $20 to park near the falls. We stayed at comfort in which was a really close walk to the American side. Canada prices were way high so try to patronize the good old USA instead. It was really cold as the end is constant, so try to go when its above 45 degrees. Spectacular anytime though. The small museum on the American side is free and you can learn a lot. Traffic can get really backed up so keep watch and m as ke a break when the lines are short. It was 30 seconds coming back across, but they really grill you going into Canada.

Bridal Veil Falls

One of the American falls.

Reviewed By TheJawsman - New York

Bridal Veil Falls is like the little sister of the American Falls next to it, with its older cousin, Horseshoe Falls, straddling the American and Canadian borders, and forming probably one of the most beautiful natural borders in the world.

Still majestic, despite the commercialization that has cropped up around it.

Niagara Falls State Park

A huge expanse of natural beauty, this oldest state park in the U.S. offers biking, fishing and cross-country skiing, and contains plenty of hiking and walking trails, including the Niagara Gorge Trail System, which affords great views of both the falls and the gorge.

Reviewed By Ken Q - Denver, United States

I visited the Falls in March so it was a little wintry but it was still a great place to visit. Very scenic and nice areas to walk.
