“Wait until later in the year”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We just finished this attraction. It was ok and the people were friendly. But the walk are only have completed, yet they charge you the same price as the would later in the year when the walkway is fully installed. Doesn't seem right. So basically you are getting half of the experience and expected to pay the full price. Also this is the sea gulls mating grounds and this time of year they ARE EVERYWHERE. The staff makes it quite clear the ponchos are more so you don't get crapped on than wet.

“A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This is a must for all people visiting Niagara. Our family of four were wonder struck at being at the close proximity to the falls. The winds and spray of water is awesome. You will experience nature from close and in all it's splendor.

“The Most Fun You'll Have on a Set of Stairs”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

At the beginning of the Cave of the Winds, you have to choose your size of sandals, then take of your shoes and wear these very weird sandals. You then get your picture taken with the entire group you're with! This was a challenge since there were 25 of us! The elevators are small and kind of scary, then at the bottom, there's a huge staircase before you even get to the main stairs of the attraction. After you get your poncho, you can explore the staircase at the bottom of the falls. You get very wet, and very cold if it's not a warm day. I do not recommend this attraction for anyone who has joint problems, there are a LOT of stairs there!

“Well worth getting wet.”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is the best way to get wet and close to the falls all in one. On a hot summer day it cools you off, but at any time getting the close up feel, sight and sound of the falls is worth this attraction. It is a lot of steps but there are places to rest along the way and you can take as much time as you need. The cost is ~$15 USD per adult, but you do get a free rain poncho and a pair of sandals. Even if you are crossing over to Canada I would recommend Cave of the winds over Journey behind the falls.

“Cave of the winds Niagara Falls”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

If you visit Niagara Falls and you only have one thing to do - The Cave of the winds is it! The attraction is worth every penny and they will give you raincoats and sandles, lockers for your things. You will go under the falls and then out onto a deck where- yes- you will get wet depending on how close youwant to be. Awesome experiance!!!!!
