Whirlpool Aero Car (Niagara Falls)

Hi,

Maybe a stupid question: does the Whirlpool Aero Car turn around at the other end or do you need to exit and walk back?

Thanks,

Sam

It will return back to the Canadian side, otherwise you will be in the US.

Hi sam;

The car runs out and back...it does not "turn around" and there is nowhere to "exit". Also, it does not dock on the American side.

You can get a better idea by watching this short YouTube video.

If only people that have no idea what they are talking about would not post incorrect information.

The Aerocar runs across the Niagara River Whirlpool, with both ends being in Canada. There are seats on both sides of the car and standing in the middle. At the opposite end, the seated people change sides for the trip back.

Well fallsdude you have put me in my place and thanks for correcting me. Having been on the Aero car and passing it many times since I always thought US was on the other side. You learn something every day.

It is common to think to goes towards the US. I won a bet with my Dad a long time ago regarding this question. In fact there is a nice park just of the Niagara Parkway to stop and see the view at the point where the area car changes direction.

Although the Whirlpool Aero Car travels between two points on the Canadian shore, riders of this historic cable car actually cross the international border line between Canada and the United States a total of four times each trip due to the way the river elbows.

This is right from the Niagra Parks website. I guess you don't know it all.
