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 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...
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.
The only part that really is in a cave is the ride down on the elevator, but this trip was definately worth it. You get to go to the bottom of the falls and see how much power there is to this water. Beautiful walk to the bottom of the falls.
You will get wet on this tour, but it is worth it.
Even though the cave was closed decades ago, this is still a worthwhile endeavor.
Be prepared to get wet. The provided slickers don't help much, but I would go even without any protection.
You get to experience the bridal veil portion up close and personal. You can reach out and touch the falls and if you feel brave, the Hurricane Deck is a *must do*.
The sandals are worth the price of admission alone!
This was the best way to get up close to the falls, and practically stand underneath. This was by far one of my favorite tours of the trip. Make sure to wear clothes that can get a little wet, as even with the poncho you WILL get wet (especially if you go on the hurricane deck, which is a must do).
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.
