Introduction: A guide to the Great Gorge Adventure Pass and all the thrills, spills and attractions the pass encompasses.

Content:

If you plan on covering all the Niagara Falls attractions it is worth considering buying a Niagara Falls Adventure Pass which will give you savings of between 30%-48% verses if you were to pay for each attraction separately. For 2017 the pass is valid all season long up to November 5.
As well as two days on the WEGO transportation service which is a hop on, hop off service connecting the Niagara Parks attractions with your hotel, here is what else the pass will give you access to:

Hornblower Niagara Cruises

The Hornblower cruise also known as the “Voyage to the Falls Boat Tour” is the top highlight to any visitor visiting the Falls. This 20 minute cruise encompasses the full mist experience taking you right up into the very heart of the Falls to view the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and the mighty Canadian Horseshoe Falls right up close in personal detail!

You can also catch the same boat in the evening for a totally different experience where you will see the Falls come to life in full technicolour during the Illuminations.

Whilst it’s advised you will get very wet on both tours due to the spray from the Falls if you head outside, the cruise is without a doubt the best way to experience the Falls as this is the closest way to access them.

Journey Behind the Falls

If you wish to access a unique view of the Falls from below and behind, then Journey Behind the Falls is one attraction you don’t want to miss.

Prepare to descend 150ft via an elevator which will take you to a short tunnel that will give you access to two outdoor observation decks and two portals that are directly located behind the Falls.

Watch in awe and amazement as you experience one fifth of the worlds fresh water supply crashing down into the basin below you. Did you know that during Summer, over 2,800 cubic meters of water passes over the brink every second? There are many more facts to discover in real time during the tours which will take up to around 45 minutes.

You’ll be provided with a free poncho and it is advisable to bring a waterproof camera!

Niagara’s Fury

One for all the family to enjoy starring Chip Beaver and the rest of his pals, Niagara’s Fury will take you on a journey of discovery to uncover the true story of Niagara Falls.

Be prepared for the temperature to drop and the water to spray and bubble as snow begins to fall. You will be surrounded by captivating visuals as the platform beneath your feet begins to move. You will experience a recreation of the environment of the Falls with all the sights and sounds to accompany your thrilling journey.
White Water Walk

You can also experience Niagara Falls via a boardwalk which runs along the edge of the water which arguably gives some of the best Instagram shots of the Falls, as you are literally surrounded by nature in tranquil surroundings.

To access the boardwalk there is an elevator which will take you down 70 meters, where you will then walk another 73 meters through a tunnel to gain access to the boardwalk. There are then stairs to take you up to two observation areas which sit at the edge of the river.

If you are brave enough you can also try the Whirlpool Aero Car which is a giant cable car that has been in operation since 1916. You will be whisked between two different points over the Canadian shore.
