  • I came here 40 years ago and I was impressed at 8 years old. Now I came w my kids and I was totally blown away. Even better than I remember. U get to see the falls super close up.  more »

  • Amazing place to visit . Mind you I visited this place in mid February so its was still very cold and frozen over, but based on what I was able to see it was very spectacular and and excellent experience I can only imagine how nice it would be in the spring defrost stages or late summer when there are clear openings and you can really put a picture to the sounds of thousands of gallons of crushing water. Can't wait to go back !!
  • I wasn't expecting such an educational walk through. The falls were great don't get me wrong but it was a great price just for the education I received about the falls. Would recommend. The parking was a bit pricey though at 10 dollars.
