“An Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We spent a little time on the observation deck first to take some pictures and take in the sights. Then we put on our blue plastic ponchos and headed out into the amazing mist of the falls. It was so cool to be that close to the falls. It was slightly cool still, but it didn't matter too much. We would love to do this again with our kids!

“U will get very wet”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

awesome experience, would have been better if not for the rude people from India and other third world nations. And they have the nerve to call us ugly Americans.

“It was an experience”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

My wife and I went on this tour and it was just like you see on tv with the water and the jackets. We actually did this and other attractions and saw the other sights as well. This attraction was an experience because it was a bit chilly and rainy, but it didn't make a difference because we were on a boat wearing jackets going toward a big waterfall. We have some great pictures from this experience and it will be something I will not forget. But just make sure your camera is covered because everything gets wet when you go. You do get up close and personal with the horseshoe falls.

“This is a must do!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

What an unbelieveable experience to be so close to the falls. Poncho kept us from getting too wet. Seemed like the captain kept the boat in the horseshoe falls for at least 10 minutes. Price is not bad either as it was less than $60 for all for of us. Considered doing the "Cave of the Winds" attraction, but so glad we chose Maid of the Mist.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Get up close and personal with the falls. We had no wait time. What a great experience riding past the American Falls and then getting drenched by the Horseshoe Falls. If you only have time for one attraction at the falls, do Maid of the Mist. I recommend wearing a shower cap. You won't regret this experience!
