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!

I couldn't make myself go on this antique Eero cable car. However I took great pictures of my kids and grandkids on the car. They said they had a great time and wasn't scary at all. OK!!

The Niagara Whirlpool Aero Car is the only way to see the Niagara River whirlpool from directly overhead.

We bought tickets for this on top of the package that we bought to visit the falls. This made it relatively expensive and was a bit of a let down. It is out of the way and a few stops on the bus plus you...More

A spectacular cab ride over the whitewater. You can see the swirls below, excellent possibilities to take a lots of good pictures about the river, and take in some fresh air.

Wish it were a longer ride, but definitely woth it. Wish we could've done it a few times!! A good distance from the falls themselves, but spectacular views.

This is an unique chance to ride on something from 1916. The Aero Car goes over the whirlpool at the bend in the river. It goes across this section on cables at about 250 feet up. It offers amazing views. When you reach the other...More

Hey, you can purchase them there but I would recommend you either get there early (near opening time) or later in the afternoon as you will have to queue especially in peak season. Make sure the aero car is operation online... More
