  • This seems like one of those attractions that you have to go on when you visit Niagara falls. You're able to see the area surrounding Niagara falls way up high on this ride. I purchased this ride in a combo package alongside with other attractions such as mini golf, haunted ride etc. It was worth it and my family had lots of fun. So if you are in the area I would recommend buying a combo package along with this ride and save some money.
  • Friendly staff and helpful too. Nice clean comfortable ride. Amazing views of the whole area, especially the falls. At night you can see the falls lit up with various colors. Also in the night time, you have the option of having the light on or off inside your seating area. Another cool feature in the night is the volcano on the dinosaur mini golf erupts with huge balls of fire that are awesome to see from the air.
