Zipline experience at Niagara Falls

While visitors can get great views of Niagara Falls from both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the border, there's a third option that offers the most thrilling view of this natural wonder.

Wild Play Element Parks has installed four exhilarating zip lines across Niagara Falls, so you can get a view of the falls from 220 feet up — while going about 40 miles per hour across 2,200 feet.

At cruising speed, the ride only takes about half a minute, but it’s a half minute that you’ll remember forever.

The ride begins at Niagara Parks Grand View Marketplace and zips across to finally land at the Ontario Power Company building at the base of Horseshoe Falls. And if you’re not an experienced zipliner, don’t worry. The experience is fully guided by an expert.

Of course, anyone who has been to Niagara knows that the warm, sunny weather doesn’t last forever. And you definitely don’t want to get stuck up there in the winter time when the whole area is frozen over.

The zip lines will be available this summer until October and a flight is about $50 per person. (The price can vary a bit because of the Canadian dollar exchange rate.)
