Not interested in either golf or an obstacle course? How about gorgeous scenery? The Whirlpool facilities are perched on Thompson’s Point. The overlook provides a stunning panoramic view of the Niagara Whirlpool and Gorge. Consider riding on the aerial tramway. The Whirlpool Aero Car travels a distance of 1,770 feet at an elevation of 250 feet. If you want a thrill ride along one of the world’s fastest river currents, then opt for a 45 to 60 minute jet boat adventure. Your smile will get soaking wet.
