#2 of 22 in Parks in Niagara Falls
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.

  • In itself for quick and ready. But it's the experience what is beautiful. You stand next to the waterfall and feel the ground vibrate and you become a little wet. the walk behind the waterfall with 2 quarried points was moderately to see. Generally, rather nice.

  • It is a beautiful experience. It allows to see the falls from a different angle and very closely. I preferred this experience to the maid of the mist.

  • To see the other side of Niagara Falls attractions. Travel of the waterfall, but really is not what's there. In the experience.

  • There are a ton of attractions at Niagara Falls but this is could be my favorite one. The most impressive part was the first viewing gallery just by the side of the falls. It was an amazing view. We went in March. Not all parts were open but there was no line up at all. I would definitely recommend.
  • This is an awesome experience. You take a elevator down in to the Earth and then walk through a bunch of old man made hall ways and end up on a platform right behind the falls. The water pours down and the mist is intense. They give you a poncho to wear on your journey.
  • During the winter season, the lower level with the display boards are closed off. Not much to do in the tunnels. To break the monotony, they have set up some fun facts to read as you travel down to each portal. Definitely not a great place if you're claustrophobic. View from the bottom is amazing.
  • It was fun to go behind the falls. Then go out on to the lookout for a different perspective. This is definitely one of the things you should do while in Niagara Falls.
  • Our family loved this experience! The line is long, but the staff is very efficient and the line moves quickly. You are given a disposable poncho and take an elevator down to a set of OLD tunnels that run behind the falls. The tunnels open up at several places and allow onlookers to get a very close up look behind the raging falls. If you walk out onto the observation area you are definitely getting wet. This experience was definitely worth it!!
