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.

Journey Behind the Falls reviews
I have done the Cave of the Wind’s on the American side (which was not a cave, but rather a balcony) and it had a lot more to offer in terms of bang for your buck. The Journey Behind the Falls is a... more »
Went December 2020 on a Friday, the place was empty and it was really cool to have a tourist destination all to ourselves. I think we only saw one other group in the tunnels behind the falls. The... more »
I first did this as a kid and never forgot it. Went back decades later and it's still as impressive. Being behind the falls is something unique and ending up beside them felt like a spiritual... more »
Definitely a good experience. They try to sell their poorly photoshoped picture of yours which they click in front of a green screen. Apart from that, the view of falls is great and staff is friendly. Remember to wear waterproof shoes if you plan to go here!
So cool to walk behind the falls in the damp tunnels with the water roaring. This is the third time I've been to the falls, but first time behind them. Totally different and amazing perspective everyone should get to see. It wasn't too busy when we went and we were able to stay on the view point for quite a while. Hope you don't mind getting wet!
Beautiful and Exhilarating Views! First off this is self guided, which is nice because you can take your time and read and truly take in the falls! The two spots under the falls aren't that great, it really just shows you how powerful the falls are, it's mostly just water and mist being pushed through. The balcony is where it's amazing! Be prepared to get wet! It is slippery so do be careful! The top balcony is awesome so close to the falls and an amazing view, but the below deck is even better! so close, great pictures, amazing view and you get wet that's for sure! It was so worth it! Go, bring a camera, don't straighten or care about your hair, prepare to get wet, relax and take in the sound of the falls and snap some amazing memories!
The trip down is interesting and well priced. It's not worth it if you are on a tight budget but for the price, we found it interesting. The noise while under the falls is incredible.
After many visits to Niagara Falls this is my first visit to Journey Behind the Falls. It was entirely self guided and the narrow halls make it hard to stop and read the historical placards. The views of the falls are amazing, but the platforms are crammed. It’s worth going to once, but I’ll probably never visit again.
