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!

Just a bit out of the way but still a nice time capsule at the falls. A pair of field glasses would be a nice touch as is a little far away to pick up details. And there is a chance to see the speed boats in the whirlpool.

This attractions lets you across the gorge and see where it all begins. It's neat experience but it sucks when it's cold out or windy out. It shows different sides of the Falls starts.

I went on this with my 11 year old son. I was a little concerned but off we went. There was a coupon for a couple dollars off with our Niagara Falls park pass. The bus transportation with the pass took up here too. You go over the border on the tram and my son gotta kick out of that.... More

If you like a THRILL, you MUST ride the AERO Car over the waters between the American Falls and Canadian Falls

I didn't venture out onto the cable car, just stayed on the viewing area. The views of the whirlpool and the whole area are very beautiful and peaceful. A trip on the cable car is definitely on the list.
