Owner description: 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!

Great experience crossing the river and viewing the whirlpool section of the falls and river downstream. A must do.

Well worth a visti. The views from the Aero Car are amazing. The view of the water below gives you an idea of the amount of water flowing through the whirlpool. Some nice walks down to the river as well very close by.

This cable car goes out over a nearly right angle bend in the Niagara River. From this vantage point you can get a good look at the gorge, the rapids and the whirlpool formed by the bend in the river. The on board operator provided an excellent commentary on the river and the cable car.

We visited the Whirlpool Aero Car as part of a day trip to Niagara from Toronto. We bought the adventure pass in advance and you need to go to the info booth at the visitor centre by the falls to get your lanyard and pass. It’s a hell of a walk from the falls so make sure you drive or use the WEGO bus system (also included in the adventure pass). It’s an antique cable car that looks scarier than it is! If your lucky to be on either side of the car you get to see both sides of the rapids as you swap around half way. Not so good if your in the middle but I guess you get to see both sides but you can’t look down. We enjoyed it and you get a real sense of the power of the river. Very quiet when we went at the end of October but he warned its probably rammed in the main season. Take a trip and you’ll enjoy it!!

If you have paid for the inclusive adventure pass then it is worth taking the WEGO out to sail across the river to have spectacular views. Once you reach the other side you all shuffle round the gondola so that you get the alternate side on the trip back.

If you have not purchased the pass it seems a lot of money for a ride lasting only 10 mins or so.
