The Zipline Niagara Falls is a unique attraction. You hang in a harness and fly with a spectacular view towards the Niagara waterfalls. Guaranteed a great sight.
You will receive a special harness, helmet, and instructions beforehand. For starts, you can not hold anything with your hands. In fact, you can stick them out to have more of a flying feel. You are advised to enjoy the ride instead of busy filming it . It’s a safe attraction, so don’t be afraid. Although that is easier said than done for some of us.
The Zipline Niagara Falls consists of four different cables next to each other. Which means that you fly with three people at the same time. These can be friends, but also strangers. If you ask, you can sit with your boyfriend or girlfriend next to each other.
The left side has the best-unobstructed view. But if you fly all the way to the right you will see the other people and the falls. Which is perfect for photos and videos, for example. Keep in mind that someone can be faster or slower. This depends on the weight and the friction someone has with the wind.
You fly towards the falls. This gives you a good view of all of Niagara Falls. Especially on the American Fall and Bridal Veil Falls. After which you fly to Horshoe Falls for landing.
