I went to Niagara Falls just to ride the Maid of the Mist. It was a dream of mine to wear the poncho and get soaked with water from the power of the Falls - this is how you know you are ALIVE - and it was amazing!! I was smiling and laughing out loud the entire time while the boat rocked and the water came down. My poor daughter was miserable, hiding her face and buckling down. But she survived and we have a great story to tell!!

If you visit the Falls, there's no way you can miss out on Maid of The Mist!
You are given big plastic ponchos before boarding the boat, but it's still a wet, wet experience! You are taken right next to the horseshoe and falls, so close that you can feel all of it! Truly magical, breathtaking experience. A must do.

beautiful views, fun getting soaked. it's nice being able to get really close to the falls to really appreciate the sheer volume of water that falls every second.
(I visited in 2011 but there's no option for that)

As part of our road trip in the US. we had a brief visit to Niagara Falls, and you can't come here without going on the 'Maid of the Mist'. Although we stayed the Canadian side, we took the short walk over to the USA side (Novelty!!) and boarded from there. As you go through the basic security for boarding you are handed with a 'Maid of the Mist' kagol. I honestly thought these were just a great advertising ploy/gimmick - But no, As we approached the falls, in a world of our own taking pictures etc, We started hearing cheers (Americans!! - Gotta love 'em) and low and behold - we got absolutely soaked! It was absolutely brilliant! I didn't think we would get that close tbh. Luckily it was really sunny our hair and anything below the knees dried within ten minutes or so! I'm glad I followed everyone else in putting it on though, otherwise I'd have been soaked through!

As someone else said - This is the only way to really appreciate the Falls - this is a must do trip..
