Overview

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!

Not only was this fun, it also gives you a view that you can not get elsewhere. The young man that run it was friendly and helpful

Don't blink, because the ride is over by the time your eyes are open! It's been a LONG time since I've been on the Aero Car, but I'm pretty sure that it slowed down a little (not stop) when going over the river. There was...More

102 Year old tram car, Suspended over a swirling Whirlpool, Not the ideal attaction for someone who doesn't like heights. But I really enjoyed it, stayed in the middle of the cart but the views were just as spectacular had I been on the edge.

Cool experience as you flloat over the rapids and whirlpool. What makes it neat was this was built 100 years ago. It only takes about 5 minutes to cross both ways and they rotate you around to get good views. It is not included on...More

Not a bad thing to check out. It is a bit expensive for the short trip across and back. However you can get some good views of the whirlpool and see the jet boats come down.

The trip over and back is less than 15 minutes; nice views of the whirlpool hole below the Falls; however, you can get the same views from the gorge rims, so the ride is of questionable value. With current $1.30 to $1.00 exchange rate, the...More

We added aero car to our package deal and were happy that we did! It’s a quick 10-15 min trip over the river. It feels very safe and has a great view. The whole family including adults and teenagers had fun. Highly recommended!

Well we were using a bus trip route, so didn’t really notice. But I’m sure that there is some parking facilities there. Enjoy 😊 sorry don’t recall parking prices.
