I'm planning to make a trip there with my friends this weekend. However we are not able to figure out if all the rides will be available or not. Does anyone here know how to find out ?

thanks for your help.

I highly suggest you try the ride where you get into a barrel and go over without any sort of protection...







...please?

I thought niagra falls was always open?:confused: I went once and had a great time, make sure you see it from the Canadian side, it is a much nicer view.

Of course you should want to see it from the Canadian side. Canada is much better than the US can ever be!

... and they do get a better view in Canada...

Well at least your title suits you, buddy.


I watched this documentary on those people that go over in those barrels. Bunch of crazies.... Anyway - you should take that boat trip where they take you behind the falls. That's awesome.

I rode a boat that takes you near the falls, water sprays on you its pretty dam cool if that's what you mean. Also there are tunnels you can walk through that take you behind the actual waterfall, really amazing stuff. So amazing that you really can't put it into words, I thought it was gonna suck going but after being there...man you just gotta see it:cool:

It's also a great place to take a woman, the "perfect" place.

I've been there, and it is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I think the boat that takes you clos to the fall is called "Made of the mist" or something. I also remember the great gorge. you could walk down almost at water level (after the falls) and you could see the water running very fast and wild. There was also cable thing, that took high over the river. And the view at the falls itself was awsom. I remember think what it would be like if I jumpe over the rails (I'm not suicidal ;) )

>>Of course you should want to see it from the Canadian side.
totaly right the canedian site is much better :D

>>man you just gotta see it :cool:
Couldn't agree more

Yeah, Niagara Falls is awesome!!!! And yeah, the Canadian side is great.

If you go on the Made of the Mist, you will get drenched.

Did you know that approximately 2500 cubic meters of water goes over the falls every second, that's a LOT of water.

On a side note, being an Brit, I thought it would be cool to set foot in America and get my passport stamped. The customs guy or policeman, whatever he was, wanted me to pay for the privilege. pfft. I only wanted a stamp. So he gave me this other stamp that said 'Buffalo' which isn't the proper one apparently but it sufficed. Now there you go, wasn't that interesting?

Well, of course he wanted you to pay. We want all your money! [diabolical laughter] Now, hand it over please. Contact me for the address.

hehe, everyone knows that....

but anyway, if you go to the falls, go through the passage type tour where you come out behind the falls about half way down. its soooo cool
