Though you can see Niagara Falls from dry land, nothing quite compares with experiencing the falls from the water. Niagara City Cruises boat tours—departing from the Canadian side—offer front-row views of the mighty falls, putting passengers well within the splash zone. Here’s what you can expect.
Fallsview Indoor Waterpark
5685 Falls Avenue, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
This massive Ontario waterpark is designed for kids of all ages, from toddlers who are just getting a feel for the water up to thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies. While there is something for everyone, not all slides are appropriate for everyone. For example, the Extreme slides are strictly for thrill-seekers and have specific height requirements. The Beach House slides have various options for smaller folks, as well as tipping buckets and a fortress play area complete with water cannons. Younger guests and their chaperones will also want to check out the dry Jungle House Playland.
Things to Know Before Your Go
Families love Fallsview Indoor Waterpark. If you’re visiting Niagara Falls with kids, you won’t want to skip it.
You may exit and reenter the park on the day of admission.
The admission fee includes the use of towels, mats, and tubes. Parking and locker rentals are an additional cost.
Many areas of the park are accessible to wheelchairs. Check the website or call ahead for details.
How to Get There
Fallsview Indoor Waterpark is in the Falls Avenue Resort, walking distance from the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. You can easily access the falls and the resort from Hamilton and Toronto by train, bus, or shuttle, or as part of a tour. If you are self-driving, take Queen Elizabeth Way to the Falls Avenue exit. Paid parking is available at the resort hotels.
When to Get There
Summer—particularly July and August—is peak season in Niagara Falls. The spring and autumn shoulder seasons are quieter, with the smallest crowds arriving in winter. Fallsview Indoor Waterpark is open all year, with reduced hours and days after Labor Day (first Monday of September) until around the third week of June; check the website for opening times.
Falls Avenue Resort
The Fallsview Indoor Waterpark is part of the Falls Avenue Resort, an entertainment and hotel destination directly across from Niagara Falls. The resort comprises Sheraton on the Falls, Crowne Plaza, and the Skyline Inn, and offers direct indoor access to the waterpark from those hotels via walkway. There are also several dining options to satisfy every traveler’s taste buds.
