The World Changed Here Pavilion at the Cave of the Winds Tour

Check out the World Changed Here Pavilion to learn about the falls before making your descent to the Niagara Gorge. The pavilion is home to tons of information about Nikola Tesla, the man who utilized the power of the falls to create an electric current! See what the area was like before it was turned into a park and what has made Niagara Falls such a popular attraction for centuries. The World Changed Here Pavilion is open year-round, so make sure to still enjoy the pavilion if you come during the winter.

The Niagara Gorge at the Cave of the Winds Tour

You will be given sandals and ponchos and head down 175 feet in an elevator to the Niagara Gorge. Once you emerge from the elevator, you will be on wooden paths that lead you to the Hurricane Deck. This puts you in close proximity of the Bridal Veil Falls with “tropical storm like conditions” coming from the water and roughness of the falls. The unique sounds, sights, and sprays of water rushing down the falls is something that only the Niagara Gorge can offer. The view is from the bottom and is dreamlike to experience. You just may get lucky and catch a rainbow across the falls from the view! The Niagara Gorge is open from April to November. Take advantage of this once in a lifetime experience and see the falls in ways you have never seen them before.

“We did this on our trip to the falls and it was amazing! Hurricane Deck is so much fun! If you just have time for one thing when you visit, make this the one!”
