Journey Behind the Falls and feel the thunder of this impressive world wonder. The sound is like thunder, the sight awe-inspiring. Take a journey deep below and behind the heart of Niagara and stand right in the mist and spray. You'll be amazed by the mighty Horseshoe Falls crashing down from 13 stories above you! You'll find Journey Behind the Falls at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, in the Table Rock Welcome Centre. Take an elevator down 45 metres (150 ft.) through bedrock to tunnels leading to the Cataract Portal and Great Falls Portal, one-third of the way behind the massive sheet of water. Walk on to the Upper and Lower Observation Decks at the very foot of the Falls.
