We were lucky enough to visit after recent rains so the waterfalls were at their majestic best!! Loved seeing them sky high from the sky rail and then from the boat on the water

The strength of the falls are dependent upon how much recent rainfall there has been. My wife and I saw the falls as part of the Skyrail ride, includes a transfer point adjacent to the falls. On this day the falls likely had medium intensity,...More
