  • I love the falls come back every other year always walk main street and must get the maple fudge. My last trip I did the zip line, Had a blast! Fireworks were so fantastic. The Hilton had an amazing view of the falls. Canadians are very lovely people.
  • Well worth the price of admission. It provides a great view of the falls and surrounding area. Line up moved quickly and efficiently, ride lasted about 20 minutes. Allows you lots of time for photos or just to take in the view. The cabin is spacious and heated. So if you have a group of 4 to 6 people you can ride together.
