Whirlpool Aero Car Review

In operation since 1916, this antique cable car crosses the Whirlpool Basin in the Niagara Gorge. This trip is not for the fainthearted, but there's no better way to get an aerial view of the gorge, the whirlpool, the rapids, and the hydroelectric plants.

    Understated and Unparalleled

    A slow, meandering ride above the gorge--beautiful. Not for people with any fear of heights.
