Create an itinerary including White Water Walk
Marvel at the trillions of gallons of water powering their way along one of the widest stretches of white water in the world at White Water Walk. Travel down 70 m (229 ft) in an elevator, to a short tunnel leading to the water's edge. A 305 m (1/4 mi) boardwalk arm's length away from the natural phenomenon takes you to two observation points, both with views of the Class 6 whirlpool rapids, which rage ferociously at 48 km/h (30 mph). From here you will learn first-hand how the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge were slowly forged thanks to the sheer force of the water. Make White Water Walk a centerpiece of your Niagara Falls vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Niagara Falls road trip planning website.

  • Best value at the falls we thought! Well worth the walk and not a hard walk at all. Even disabled friendly! Highly recommended!

  • Walk right next to this powerful river ! It’s very cool ! Enjoyed it. Get tickets on line to avoid lines there. Spaced out for Covid on elevators.

  • This has got to be one of the best Niagara experiences.... It is a great up-close experience of the Niagara white water rapids, that is very truly a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the world up-close to some of the world's fastest water rapids. This is a MUST SEE!!! It is one of the best attractions in Niagara Falls, though it's not a Falls attraction but a Class A White Water Rapids attraction. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!
  • It is so beautiful if you like water. You come face to face with the Niagara water here. You can feel the rapids, they are in front of you. I mean you come down 23 floors with the help of a fast elevator to come down to the water level. Over there, they have built a safe wooden path along with the river so that people can enjoy the water from a distance.
  • Fantastic walk to view the raging currents of the falls. The water is supposedly 35ft deep here and moving at almost 40km/h! Some of the historical signs mentioned people swimming through the rapids!
  • Was great to be down by the rapids but not worth the price!!! It is so short the you blink and you are done. I was shocked!! I'm like this is it! I understand they need to charge for the upkeep but half of what they charge would be more like it.
  • If you get the Niagara Falls Pass you can park for free! It’s one thing to see the falls, but I’ve never seen the rapids this close! What an awesome experience!! The lookouts are so close to the river the waves are over your head!! The sound is almost deafening and you can feel the power of the river in your chest. Totally awesome!!
