Create an itinerary including White Water Walk
Marvel at the trillions of gallons of water powering their way along one of the widest stretches of white water in the world at White Water Walk. Travel down 70 m (229 ft) in an elevator, to a short tunnel leading to the water's edge. A 305 m (1/4 mi) boardwalk arm's length away from the natural phenomenon takes you to two observation points, both with views of the Class 6 whirlpool rapids, which rage ferociously at 48 km/h (30 mph). From here you will learn first-hand how the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge were slowly forged thanks to the sheer force of the water. Make White Water Walk a centerpiece of your Niagara Falls vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Niagara Falls road trip planning website.

  • A really great place to visit if you are in Niagara falls. I was a bit hesitant as the entrance fee is around 17$ for an adult but the previous reviews convinced me to give it a try and they were right! It is incredible and you really feel the power of the water! Plus it is way less crowded than the falls and can be a great way to end your day there!
  • Lovely place to visit- especially if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the falls but still enjoy natures beauty and power. My son and I quite enjoyed all the pictures and reading the facts/history posted there about the area. I am definitely glad that we made it one of our stops while we were in the area.
