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 went to this attraction because it was included in our Niagara Parks Adventure Pass. When we heard it was a 100 year old cable car we assumed it would be creaky, shaky, and terrifying. It was just the opposite. The ride was very smooth,...More

Incredible experience, never done something like it. Might be interesting when windy. Lovely views of the whirlpool and gorge. Quite quick and smooth actually. Gift shop and parking, as well as drinks and snacks on site.

Definitely a must see if you are visiting. You can see the whirlpools, and people hiking or fishing. The wait might be longer than the actual ride for this one and you will want to have warm clothes to avoid the cold winds.

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...More

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....More

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...More
