We looked into this prior to our 25th anniversary vacation and since we are in our mid to late 40's thought it might not be for us. Once in Niagara Falls, we decided to do it. We were able to book just the day before. We are both in good shape and adventurous, however I broke my neck 8 years ago, so I was a bit nervous. This was the highlight of our trip! We felt safe with our Captain Paul, and our boat leader Sam was amazing! We have been whitewater rafting in Maine several times on Class 5 rapids, and this was a whole other level! We were incredibly impressed by the power of the boat. My neck felt great and I felt completely safe the entire time. The trip is so reasonable for the 45 minute thrill & excitement. Even the owner, John, was there to wish us off on our trip. We bought the video and photos to show our daughters and they were so envious, as well as proud of their adventurous parents! On our next trip out, this will be our first reservation. Thank you!

This is my 2nd time experiencing this.. 8 years ago.. just as a remember.. was so much fun! The staff, the tour guide, captain were great! Will do it again soon especially since I don't have a thrilling boat to go through rapids. Lol. Only thing is we had a large group that took up the first 3/4 rows which I wanted myself and daughter upfront ( we were there first to sign in) but grouped together in line after we sat waiting for our tour guide to explain safety regulations. Disappointed they didn't spilt the group up so some ppl can get the opportunity to get closer.. other then that... you will still love it and get wet!
