Overview

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!

We were apprehensive about riding on the aero car but was very surprised how stable and enjoyable the experience. Even though it was a windy day we felt safe. Beautiful way to view the waters below and area around...

My guest took the rife across the gorge, it was $15 bucks for over and back. Oh hum. The gift shop has better prices for better souveniers that the city area, and the areas is relaxing really.

A nice open air view of the whirlpool and the river and watching the jet boat messing about. It is only a 10 min. experience but one we fell is worth doing. As you turn around on the far side without touching down the guide...More

I'll be upfront and say we did not do the Aerocar, we just stopped for a look at the Whirlpool. Since they control the river level, there is not a lot of "whirl" in their pool. But it is a pretty big area and you...More

This is a must if you visit the falls, you get to see the rapids from up above & from a different view point away from the main falls- it's fantastic & doesn't cost that must either.......loved it.

The view on the Aero Car is stunning. It is not of the falls so you can basically ride an aero car anywhere in the world where there is a decent body of water. However, I still think it was well worth it. I have...More

Unfortunately, no. The space is limited on the cart. Also passengers need to rotate to the other side halfway through.

Well we were using a bus trip route, so didn’t really notice. But I’m sure that there is some parking facilities there. Enjoy 😊 sorry don’t recall parking prices.
