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!

Excellent experience for adults and kids. This inexpensive attraction is a must do. It does not take long but it is very picturesque. A great opportunity for pictures of Niagara River and the gorge.

Quick but fun ride across the river. You get a chance to see up the river at a bend. Pretty interesting ride up that high.

The view wasn't so impressive, honestly. Looking at the actual falls is way better, and doesn't cost money to do so. This thing costs 15 dollars. Really Niagara Parks? At least you don't get some sort of stomach/headache while using this vehicle, it moves at...More

This was Included on our Niagara Falls pass, we didn't do it, as it looks a bit scary, but it would be a great view from The Areo Car.

It is an amazing view of the river bend and whirlpool. Very scenic. It is a short ride and not very exciting, but worth it if you don't have to wait in line. For those who are not fond of heights there is a middle...More

Hey, you can purchase them there but I would recommend you either get there early (near opening time) or later in the afternoon as you will have to queue especially in peak season. Make sure the aero car is operation online... More
