Cling tight to your hood as you walk carefully along the wooden walkway, enduring the howling wind and spraying mist of the majestic waterfall.

  • I was there for one day visit with my friends. You are given a yellow coloured raincoat and sleepers for going there. You get to see the falls from near. You have to pass through a cave to go there. B...  read more »
  • If you want to literally feel the falls up close, this is a must-see attraction. After a disappointing "Under the Falls" experience on the Canadian side, we were delighted to find this. It was 1,000x ...  read more »

  • It is a must-see attraction place when you visit the Niagara Falls from the US side, although it cost me an iPhone battery because of the unbelievable wetness :). It is once-in-a-life time opportunity so you should not miss it. It is an absolutely breath-taking amusement to get wet under the lovely mist and sometimes water of the Cave of the Winds part of the Falls. You feel the relaxing negative ions of the mist. It is just awesome, awesome, and awesome! PS: Do not forget to have ice cream, particularly strawberry and Niagara Falls, when you exit the Cave. It is just on your way, you cannot miss it. Some of the best ice creams I have ever had in the US.
  • Loved it! Prepare to be soaked if you don't tie your poncho wright! But then you get to dry while walking the beautiful Park! One unique experience! You really get to feels the power of the falls!!! Do bring an waterproof camera! Would've ruin my iphone if I would've used it for sure!!! (And it brings back the nostalgia of using a film camera! The anticipation of getting the pictures!!!). Not a long walk but you can take your time and stay as long as you want. Really great experience! Would recommend this to everyone!!!
  • It an amazing experience to be under the falls. The water droplets were like tiny projectiles hitting our ponchos. Its breath taking. PS: Dont forget to carry ziploc for mobile phones to take pictures.
  • An experience i will always keep dear to me, Cave of the winds beautiful felt the water on my back oh and the maid of the mist i had my phone and got really beautiful photos the exoerience was wonderful with family and friends who made the trip with me. Visited falls from 8th July to 7th.
  • I was at niagara on 6th and 7th of june 2016, visited cave of winds and immersed in the water but enjoyed the moment,boat ride is memorable. I am from karnataka, india where the famous JOG FALLS, located ,which is nearly 1000 feet depth, when compare to that niagara is less height but more water is flowing, I took Copter for aerial view of AMERICAN and CANADA side and enjoyed.
