One of the coolest things we've done in the Niagara Falls area which has been in operation since 1916. We rode an antique cable car, high above the racing Niagara River. Below, the torrent of water abruptly changes direction and creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomena – the Niagara Whirlpool.
The cable car is suspended from six sturdy cables and offers a wonderful view of the Whirlpool which is formed at the end of the rapids where the gorge turns abruptly counterclockwise, and turns clockwise when the water level drops below 20 feet. The ride is sometimes frightening and always unforgettable!
