Admire Niagara Falls from a different vantage point with a visit to Journey Behind the Falls. Hidden behind the powerful waterfall, the tunnel offers several viewing platforms that give visitors a fresh perspective on the thunderous cascade. Be sure to wear a poncho or waterproof jacket on your visit, as you'll almost certainly get doused by heavy sprays of water. Reserve your tickets in advance, as the popular attraction can sell out.

  • This was a disappointment. Opening were very small so you couldn’t grasp the scale. Outside at lower level was ok and the facts they had on the walls was interesting

  • View of the falls from below ground and prepare to get a little wet. Ponchos provided. You are so close to the falls. It was awesome.

  • Yes definitely a “must see” when you are here Go see the tunnels first,, and hear the roar of the waterfall, there’s not much to see here because it’s a blanket of water in front of you. Then go do the observation deck, where you can “see” the falls in all their glory. Pretty incredible experience to be so close to the falls. Great excursion to do on a hot, humid summer day!
  • Would totally recommend for everyone to do this at least once in their life! The experience is so amazing and allows you to appreciate the falls to a higher extent. Great opportunity for very nice pictures. Can be cold but still worth it if you are dressed warmly.
  • So close...so real
  • Journey Behind The Falls is easily a must see attraction when visiting the area. It is a historical attraction and is truly one of a kind. I have loved going here all my life and never get tired of it. If you come to the area and only have time for one attraction, this should be the one you see. A great experience, fun for everyone, and well worth the wait in line.
  • Totally worth it! Not crowded in April and a good way to see the falls up close and personal. I loved to hear the rushing water and the occasional blast of the water hitting me as I looked out of the key hole. The look out point is spectacular, a big area with a covered top and open bottom. You are right next to the falls. And you get wet! I loved it.
