This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.

It was a great and certainly interesting experience to be standing right under the majestic falls. It is just under. Can feel the mist from the falls. Definitely a must do.

Is a very powerful water fall, is amazing the power of the nature and from the cave of the winds, you can experience and live this atmosphere and even get wet! It's a MUST do it when in Niagara Falls park.

The "Hurricane Deck" is the best spot where you can feel the full force of the falls as it crashes down. It will give you an adrenaline rush!

The line to get under the falls was long but it moved fast. You were given a special pair of shoes, which you get to keep and rain ponco. Once near the falls you were free to roam about. It was up to you to how wet you wanted to get. The wind was rushing past you as the falls... More

People normally take a look at the Niagara Falls from the Canada side. However, I strongly recommend you to experience The Cave of Winds. This is the closest place you can take a look at the falls and feel how strong and powerful the falls are. Even though you may get wet, it definitely worth visit.

This is a classic tourist destination, and certainly worth a visit. But know that -- even with the free plastic poncho -- you're going to get wet. Very wet. You're walking under Bridal Veil Falls and the edge of American Falls, and the spray from the water hitting the rocks at the bottom of the falls is intense. It is... More

My wife and I just spontaneously started laughing on the hurricane deck beneath Bridal Veil. What fun! Aside from just the natural incredible beauty of all the falls during our stay this was the most memorable attraction there. They give you sandals and a poncho but you WILL get wet. A must do at Niagara Falls but not for the... More

While staying in Niagara Falls for a week (a party of 7 people ranging from 40-75 years of age); we decided that this was an attraction we just had to do. I can strongly recommend that if it is open; that you do it as this was our third visit to Niagara Falls and so far, this was the first... More

This was the most fun experience! While we were able to almost "walk" in the falls, it was very safe. We were given shoes, and even an extra pair in case one didn't fit my younger son. We got a little wet, great photos, and had a thrilling experience.
