It only takes a minute to zoom down this 2,200-foot long zip line, but that 60 seconds offers a jaw-dropping view of the falls. Located 220 feet above the Niagara Gorge, the WildPlay MistRider Zipline to the falls floats riders past the American and Bridal Veil Falls, and down towards the Canadian Horseshoe Falls at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. With four side-by-side ziplines, families can fly together. If a daytime ride isn’t exhilarating enough, book a nighttime spot when the Horseshoe Falls are illuminated in a cascade of color. Score a flight at 10 pm on summer nights and watch fireworks light up the sky.
