So here’s the thing – we’ve seen the Falls from the Canadian side and the American side – but there’s another option that might just be the best 30 seconds you’ve had in a long time! The question is: Do you have the stomach for it?

The MistRider Zipline to the Falls at Grand View Marketplace takes you on a breathtaking ride into the gorge, towards the base of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls – complete with incredible views and mist in your face!

There are four exhilarating zip lines across Niagara Falls, so you can get a view of the falls from 220 feet up — while going about 40 miles per hour across 2,200 feet.

If you’ve never zipped, no worries, the experience is fully guided by an expert.

The MistRider Zipline to the Falls launched back in 2016, and is not an attraction for the faint of heart, as you’ll be cruising at about 40 miles per hour across 2,200 feet from 220 feet up in the air. The zip line takes all of 30 seconds from start to finish. Yes, half a minute.

If you think you can handle this thrill ride, the zip lines are open through October, and a ride will set you back about $50. Kids must be at least 7 years old to participate, and those 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
