Journey Behind the Falls / Regular Season


Highlights / General details

At Journey Behind the Falls, you'll experience the awesome spectacle of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down to the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 2,800 cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every second, travelling 65 kilometers per hour!

Elevators descend 150 feet through bedrock to tunnels that lead and to the Cataract Portal and the Great Falls Portal which is one third of the way behind the massive sheet of water. Then you walk on to the Upper and Lower Observation Decks at the very foot of the Falls. In the spring and summer months, you'll receive a free souvenir biodegradable rain poncho as protection from the mist of the Falls.


Admission; Biodegradable souvenier poncho.
