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 went on this with my 11 year old son. I was a little concerned but off we went. There was a coupon for a couple dollars off with our Niagara Falls park pass. The bus transportation with the pass took up here too. You go over the border on the tram and my son gotta kick out of that.... More

If you like a THRILL, you MUST ride the AERO Car over the waters between the American Falls and Canadian Falls

I didn't venture out onto the cable car, just stayed on the viewing area. The views of the whirlpool and the whole area are very beautiful and peaceful. A trip on the cable car is definitely on the list.

It was a very unique way to get a view of the natural whirlpool. Short and sweet but well worth it. The only thing I would say was the tour guide was a little abrasive when asking us all to move around the car. Halfway done the trip without warning she screamed "keep moving!". It would have been nice if... More

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! You are way up there suspended from cables over a gigantic whirlpool! There... More
