Journey Behind the Falls is a unique attraction experience. The sound is like thunder; the sight is awe-inspiring! Take a Journey Behind the Falls deep below and behind the heart of Niagara, and stand in the mist where 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. During summer daylight hours, over 2,800 cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every second, traveling 65 kilometers per hour!
To stand at the heart of Niagara, you’ll first need to descend 150 feet and explore 130-year-old tunnels through the bedrock, but you’ll feel the thunderous vibration of the Horseshoe Falls long before you see them.
The observation deck at the foot of this 13-storey-tall wonder will leave you breathless (and maybe a little bit wet), but don’t forget the viewing portals cut straight through the rock, offering a once-in-a-lifetime view of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down in front of you.
LOWER OBSERVATION DECK
Up to 2,800 cubic metres of water thunders over the brink of the Horseshoe Falls every second, traveling 65 kilometres per hour. That might sound like a lot, but to really feel it you'll need to don your iconic yellow poncho, stand on the Lower Observation Deck and look up, way up! Just try to remember to take a breath every now and then.
Some of the original visitors to this attraction wore heavy rubber boots and rain coats before making their way through what was then called the "Scenic Tunnels". Today, the visitor-favourite yellow Journey Behind the Falls ponchos are fully biodegradable, but you'll probably want to take it home as a keepsake anyway.
