One of Niagara’s treasures, the White Water Walk is a boardwalk situated on the very edge of Niagara’s whitewater.
The Whirlpool was estimated to have been formed approximately 4,200 years ago by the upstream erosion of the Niagara Escarpment by the Niagara River. Trillions of gallons of water pours through the narrow gorge and creates a fury of ferocious Class 6 Whirlpool Rapids. The water that travels through the rapids here clock in at 48 kilometres per hour!
The White Water Walk takes you down in an elevator 70 metres, through a tunnel, and then out onto the boardwalk. The boardwalk runs for 1000 feet and contains stairs and two areas to witness the rapids at full speed at the very edge of the river.
This attraction is wheelchair accessible.
