Travelers can take a walk on the wet—and wild—side on a visit to Niagara Fall’s White Water Walk. Since 1876 this top tourist attraction has been drawing visitors in search of an up close look at the Class VI rapids and swirling whirlpools that surround the stunning Niagara Falls. Additional construction brought high-speed elevators to transport guests to the lower gorge in the mid 1900s.
After settling in for a ride on the high-speed elevator, travelers exit a 73-meter tunnel to embark on a scenic stroll along the epic Niagara River. A well-kept boardwalk winds along the raging rapids and two unique viewing areas offer up some of the best natural sight-seeing in the area.
Travelers can venture to the White Water Walk on their own, after a stop at the thundering falls, or head to this top attraction as part of a tour of the sights and highlights related to one of the world’s Natural Wonders.
White Water Walk is located at 4330 River Road in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Hours change depending on the season and White Water Walk is open only between April and September. Admission is $12.25 for travelers 13 and older, and $8 for children ages 6 to 12. Those under five are free.
