Ever wondered what the Niagara Whirlpool looks like from above? The Whirlpool Aero Car gives visitors the experience of a lifetime to view Niagara Falls from over 200 feet in the air. Developed in 1916 by famous Spanish engineer, Leonardo Torres Quevedo, this ride provides each visitor with an unforgettable memory and view of one of North America’s most iconic sights.

Being one of the seven wonders of the world, Niagara Falls is already a must-see attraction in North America. The Niagara Whirlpool is naturally developed at the end of the river rapids. Shared by both New York state and Ontario, the ride allows visitors to cross the international border multiple times to reveal every portion of this natural beauty. This aerial ride gives sight-seers the opportunity to see Niagara Falls and the Whirlpool in all of its glory from every angle.

Carrying 35 passengers and lasting approximately 10 minutes, this one of a kind ride is one you truly can’t experience anywhere else. The trip spans an estimated distance of one kilometer.

Not only will you experience a scenic phenomenon of nature, but also an incredible technological feat.

Scared of heights? The Whirlpool Aero Car has been running for more than 100 years and is supported by six reliable steel cables. The ride is a consistently safe and enjoyable experience for all passengers. You’ll be so distracted by the intense beauty of the rushing water of the Niagara Whirlpool that you’ll easily forget you’re suspended 200 feet in the air.
