Whirlpool at Niagara lets you take a thrilling adventure course next to the falls

Niagara Falls has loads of thrilling attractions to get a healthy dose of adrenaline, from their real-life Mario Kart racetrack to soaring above the river in a vintage cable car.

Next month, daredevils will be able to put their bravery and balance to the test by means of an exhilarating 40 ft tall obstacle course, with views of the powerful Niagara whitewater in the expansive gorge below.

WildPlay's Whirlpool Adventure Course opens for the season on May 6, 2023, allowing visitors to walk across tightropes, balance on wobbling bridges, climb up cargo nets, zipline, and more.

If you're up for it, you can try their "What's to Fear (WTF) Jump," where you climb up a rope ladder to a wooden platform suspended at 40 ft., then leap from the ledge while securely tethered. 

The course also offers night climbs after dark from 9 - 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, if you'd like to see how your heightened senses fare under the stars.

Tickets for the classic obstacle course start at $49.99 per person, or you can opt for the Extreme Course with more difficult obstacles for $39.99. They also have a kids' course ideal for children from 5 to 12 years old for $32.99 per person.

While their opening date is a few weeks away, it is recommended that you book your tickets online in advance, as dates can fill up quickly.
