Journey Behind the Falls
Niagara Falls is an incredible sight from land and by boat, but at Journey Behind the Falls visitors who wish to truly experience its massive power can get up close and personal—and wet. Standing on an observation deck behind the falls, where more than one million bathtubs of water thunder over the edge every second, is a truly unforgettable experience of Niagara.

The Basics
At Journey Behind the Falls, visitors descend by elevator to a series of tunnels bored into the rock behind Niagara Falls. The two tunnels, which extend approximately 150 feet (46 meters) behind Horseshoe Falls, lead to views of water cascades right in front of the open cave entrances. The best part is stepping out on the observation deck for a truly different and incredible perspective—you will get very wet, but it’s worth it!

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Journey Behind the Falls consists of an observation platform and series of tunnels near the bottom of Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian shore. 
  • Be prepared for long lines, especially during the popular summer months. The best time to avoid the lines is early in the day.
  • Plastic ponchos are provided and are fine for keeping dry in summer. But during cooler months, be sure to bring a raincoat and warm layers.

How to Get There
Journey Behind the Falls is located off Niagara Parkway, directly across from Horseshoe Falls. Enter the tunnels through the Table Rock House, which has visitor information.

When to Get There
Journey Behind the Falls is open year-round. The best time to visit is early in the day. During the summer, there’s also a nighttime fireworks show several times weekly. 

Three in One
Niagara Falls is actually composed of three sets of falls: American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls (also known as Canadian Falls). Horseshoe Falls is the cascade behind which Journey Behind the Falls travels. It’s an incredibly popular attraction, whether you’re planning your falls visit from the Ontario (Canada) side or the New York (US) side. 
Address: 6650 Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls L2E 2L5, Canada

Disappointed!

, Nov 2019
First the tickets didn’t arrive so I had to chase them at midnight before. The tickets are for Hardrock coffee in NY whilst the journey behind the falls is in Canada. We followed instructions to get the meeting point then been advised that we had to go to NY to have lunch at Hardrock Cafe!!! So disappointed ☹️. Don’t buy this tour !!!

The Journey Behind the falls was a good experience BUT it was impossible to use the Hard Rock Cafe vouchers. It was clearly stated that it was for the NY HRC but that location is at the opposite end of the falls and there was no good way to get there. It would have involved 2 border crossings and several hours of our time just to get there and back. We requested a refund for that portion and was denied..Buyer Beware!!

Journey Behind the Falls Ticket and Hard Rock Cafe Meal Attraction Tickets

Journey Behind the Falls Ticket and Hard Rock Cafe Meal

star-1.5
Your Niagara Falls journey begins behind the Falls in Niagara Falls Canada. To stand at the heart of Niagara, you’ll first need to descend 150 feet and explore 130-year-old tunnels through the bedrock, but you’ll feel the thunderous vibration of the Horseshoe Falls long before you see them. The observation deck at the foot of this 13-story-tall wonder will leave you breathless (and maybe a little bit wet), but don’t forget the viewing portals cut straight through the rock, offering a once-in-a-lifetime view of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down in front of you. Make your way to the USA side of the Falls for your meal at Hard Rock Café Niagara Falls USA.
