Cave of the Winds reviews
A-Mazing! We loved this so much! Once in a lifetime experience! We got SOAKED and loved every single second of it! We are still laughing about it! And who does not love the stylish sandals? Haa.... more »
One of the most beautiful things I have ever experienced in my lifetime!!! It was so awesome getting so close to the waterfalls and I hope to do it again more »
I mean... it’s completely indescribable. We came planning to do Maid of the Mist (which was also totally exceptional), but had never heard of Cave of the Winds. We got it in an attraction package. Honestly, it made the trip. To get THAT up close and personal with the Falls... I mean there’s no way to describe what that’s like. If anyone goes to Niagara, I will instantly recommend Cave of the Winds.
Most amazing experience ever! Warning...you will get soaked even with the poncho on. It was so beautiful with rainbows and wildflowers everywhere. The power of the water rushing down next to you is indescribable! If you have to choose between this one and the one on the Canadian side do this one. The other one is nice too, but you don't get right under the Falls. Just depends on what picture is more important to you and how wet you want to get. Love that they give out the water shoes with your ticket and you can keep them!
