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.

I think that the key is to get to these activities earlier in the day. We were fortunate that there was only a short line when we arrived and we only had to wait about 20 minutes before boarding the car. It was definitely unique and exciting!

A 100-year-old tourist attraction, the Aero Car moves on cables suspended high above the Niagara Gorge. Not an exciting experience but interesting to see the whirlpool and structure of the gorge and its woodlands, and was included in our Adventure Pass Plus.

Very awesome ride! We did this in the fall. I would definitely go back in the summer and ride it again! It's a shorter ride than I anticipated but still very nice with good views.

Ok to start with I don't like heights so the thought of going on a really old cable car over a whirlpool river was slightly scary for me. Going in October we got the falls colours and it was breath taking. I would go back on it over and over again if I could. Fantastic picture opportunities plus a bit... More
