Big tip! You can purchase your ticket early in the day and come back in the afternoon. Just show the ticket and line monitors and you go to the head of the line. Afternoons have long lines but they move quickly. You will get wet!...More

At $11 per adult it is totally worth it! The boat takes you right up to horseshoe falls. You receive a free poncho and you get really wet. Only disappointment is that the ride isn't longer

I recommend doing this and The Cave of The Winds. No way to get closer to the awesome power of Niagara, unless you wanna try the barrel.

It was actually refreshing. We were on the top deck and got a little wetter than my parents on the bottom, but it actually felt good. Just some sprays here and there. It wasn't like a drenching. You will love it!!

I'm not sure, but I would take the tour on the Canada side, or walk across and like the previous post, eat on the Canadian side. The food is terrible at the Top of the Falls Restaurant!
