Cave of the Winds
Short of going over the falls in a barrel, there are fewer places closer to the action than this series of walkways beneath Bridal Veil Falls. Located on Goat Island, this was once a cave but water erosion has made it too dangerous to explore. An elevator takes visitors to the base of the American Falls where wooden stairs and pathways bring them within 25 feet of the falls. You're advised to wear the raincoat and foot coverings as splashes from the falls are frequent. There is also a walk called the Gorge Trip with an incredible view.
This place was great. They gave souvenir sandals and raincoats to all the visitors. Anyone who visits this attraction will get wet if not soaked. The hurricane tower is great as well. I suggest you take photos at a safe distance because your camera will get wet as well. My only complaint is the line into the attraction can be a bit long. We waited in line for 30-40 minutes.
My wife had never been here but I had a long time ago. The tour was ok, but nothing spectacular. We wouldn't go back. $18 is $8 to much. Print out a coupon online for $2 off each adult. Good for a one time visit.
This was one of the best attractions at Niagara Falls... definitely a must do. You will definitely get wet, even with the poncho's on, so consider that when deciding what to wear. We had a warm day so we dried off pretty quickly. You get very close to the Bridal Veil Falls, and can feel the water splashing on you. Be sure to bring a waterproof camera. The Hurricane Deck was very thrilling. I was afraid of it at first, but it is definitely a must do. The force of the wind and the water was crazy...
By far the best attraction at Niagara Falls on the U.S. side!! Be prepared to get soaked and that is the word of the day when visiting Cave of the Winds. We stayed in Canada and walked across the bridge to the site. The hike was worth while with plenty of awesome scenery. Don't feel bad about keeping the sandals, we did. Take a waterproof camera if you want pictures.
LOVED IT! Its the closest and AWESOME view of the falls. I will never forget the power of the falls as I stood on hurricane deck. Was able to stick my feet into the falls as I climbed the stairs. And at the deck the falls rained down on me AWESOME! My hubby and I celebrated 25yrs of wedded bliss going to Niagara Falls. LOVED IT! My only advice is to stay on the Canada side hotels-- as there is alot of stuff to do there and not much at all on the American side.
thiswas an awsome attraction you walk on these walkways and steps and it gets you very up close to the falls. you can actually touch the rocks laying beside the walkways. and you will get wet they give you a raincoat but you will still get wet. but overall it was an experience you will never forget
is Actually so amazing, everybody in the staff are actually friendly, is a person in the elevator telling you the story, but don't blink or you miss it, you get so close to the falls, you can touch them, there is a point where you are actually under it and you get wet. is really an experience worth to do it again
The most amazing site for me was the Cave of the Winds tour and the Hurricane deck. Traveling 175 feet through the rock we emerged at the bottom of the gorge and walked over an intricate set of stairs and decking that is removed every November and rebuilt in the Spring. We were as close as 20 feet from the Bridal Veil Falls and felt the tropical storm-like winds buffeting us around. The more adventurous in our party, not me, you get get soaked from the falling water that hit a rock first and then doused the brave. And as a bonus you receive complimentary raincoat and sandels. At the end of the tour there is an opportunity to donate the sandels for people in need. So everyone wins. We will definitely go back!
