Journey Behind the Falls

You might have donned the souvenir protective poncho handed out at this attraction that descends 38 metres via elevator. But now, thanks to a venue refresh, there are state-of-the-art interactive displays for guests of all ages that dive into the history of Niagara Falls. The newly renovated Journey Behind the Falls

provides an extended experience of this world-class attraction that begins as soon as you arrive. Fun tidbits include a timeline that showcases the geographical formation of Niagara Falls as well as detailing fascinating historic revelations of the Niagara Parks’ nightly lights spectacle of rainbow hues that shines on the frothing falls, famously known as the Falls Illumination.

Don’t worry, the reno has left the elevator experience intact. Prepare yourself to be marvelled as you make the descent, which is equivalent to the height of Niagara Falls. Once the elevator door opens, the thundering roar of the Horseshoe Falls blasts loudly throughout this underground tunnel system. Walk to one of the lookout points for unbelievably close-up views of the rushing water and step out onto the observation deck at the foot of this 13-storey-tall wonder. You will be left breathless at the mythic size (and a wee bit wet).

Table Rock Centre Originally built in 1827, this landmark is famously known as the closest building to the Falls. The iconic site hosts nearly 10 million visitors every year!
