On the Journey Behind the Falls, you'll be able to stand directly behind the roaring sheet of water and get a literal behind-the-scenes peek at this magnificent natural attraction. The tour begins with an elevator ride to an observation deck where you can take in the view of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and the Niagara River. From there, follow the caverns and enjoy the roaring curtain of the falls from a different perspective. However, be prepared for crowds – Journey Behind the Falls is one of the most popular ways to see the falls, so you may find that the tunnels are rather cramped.
Recent visitors highly recommended the Journey Behind the Falls, even if you've already gone on a Maid of the Mist tour, as this attraction offers yet another interesting perspective of the falls. To avoid crowds and enjoy the view in peace, reviewers suggest getting to the attraction when it opens at 9 a.m.
Cave of the Winds
* Sightseeing Type, 1 to 2 hours Time to Spend.
Many recent visitors called the Cave of the Winds a "must-do." After taking an elevator 175 feet down into the Niagara Gorge, you'll be able to roam a series of wooden walkways that put you within feet of the Bridal Veil Falls. It's called the "Hurricane Deck," thanks to the tropical storm-like conditions. Even with the souvenir poncho and shoes, you'll likely get wet.
Recent travelers didn't seem to mind the soggy outcome from a visit to the Cave of the Winds. Visitors were amazed at how close they could get to the falls and loved being able to witness the powerful rush of water up close.
You'll find this attraction on the New York side of the falls on Goat Island. The attraction is open year-round, though you can only access the walkways from April to October (the walkways and decks are removed every winter to be protected from ice buildup).
From May to September, tickets for Cave of the Winds cost $17 for adults and $14 for kids ages 6 to 12. If you visit in the winter, you can still access parts of the attraction, including the elevator ride down to the gorge. Tickets cost $7 for adults and $5 for children. From November to April, the attraction welcomes visitors from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
