    "One of the seven natural wonders of the world. Experience the better views from the Canadian side. Horn Blower is a must do! Wet but fun. Not only can you ride the horn blower, you can also enjoy the journey behind the falls and the grade 6 rapids at the bottom - the most dangerous in the world."

    "Experience the Falls in more than one way. Firstly through Journey behind the Falls, which gives the history about the Falls and then on the Hornblower cruise which is the closest way to experience the Falls. Lastly the Zipline that runs parallel to the Falls which is something that is new to the area."
