Niagara Parks – Journey Behind the Falls

Experience the power of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls from a different angle

Niagara Falls

You’ve seen them from a distance. Now experience the awesome power of the Falls from within as its mighty waters thunder overhead.
Located in Niagara Falls by the brink of Horseshoe Falls and inside the Table Rock Welcome Centre, the Journey Behind the Falls begins with an elevator ride 150 feet underground.

A network of tunnels leads you through bedrock to the Cataract Portal and the Great Falls Portal where two spectacular observation decks await you at the foot of the Falls.
As the water cascades and mist envelops you, you’ll hear the sounds of nature at its most ferocious. But don’t worry – biodegradable ponchos are provided.

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, traveling 65 kilometers per hour!

You’ll find Journey Behind the Falls at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, in the Table Rock Welcome Centre. Take an elevator down 45 metres (150 ft.) through bedrock to tunnels leading to the Cataract Portal and Great Falls Portal, one-third of the way behind the massive sheet of water.

I believe it is just hit or miss with the timing. Because we waited a long 45 -60 minutes to get to the end of the furthest tunnel under the falls. However, when we left no one was in line. So if...

My whole family loved the tunnels, as well as the view from the lookout areas. Great value for what you are able to see.
