Journey Behind the Falls: Take a journey below and behind the heart of Niagara and stand in the mist where the water of the mighty Horseshoe Falls tumbles from 13 storeys above. 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.
Observe the thrilling power of nature at close quarters with this year-round attraction that affords astonishing views of Niagara Falls from below and behind. Descend deep below ground in a lift and then walk along a tunnel to get access to two outdoor observation decks and two portals located directly behind the falls. During summer daylight hours more 2,800 cubic metres of water thunder over the brink every second, travelling at 65km/h. Nowhere can you get a more vivid sense of what this means than standing almost within touching distance as the heaving torrents come crashing down about your ears.
In winter, the falls present a radically different but equally spectacular picture – huge sheets of ice and stunning icicles make up a dramatic frozen landscape. Whatever time of year you visit you are guaranteed to get a perspective on Niagara Falls like no other. If you want to experience the untamed majesty of the falls in all their powerful glory at first hand, then this is the place for you.
Journey Behind the Falls enables you to get up close to Niagara and experience the sensation of the falls’ power in the most immediate way possible. An unforgettable, unmissable thrill.
