Cave of the Winds

Now, modified excerpts from their website:

Cave of the Winds begins with an elevator 175 feet into the Niagara Gorge. There are a series of wooden walkways to the "Hurricane Deck". However, everyone can experience the sights of Niagara Falls: a deck 150 feet from the base of the Falls was designed for persons requiring barrier-free access and adults with children in arms.

There are quite a few steps but you don't have to go to every deck.

Can anyone give me a comparison of Cave of the Winds versus Behind The Falls? I have been to Behind the Falls?

Are the lines typically shorter at one place on a summer Friday afternoon / evening? I am sure they are long at both places!
