This was very nice. The poncho and flip flops are provided because you will get soaked. Up close and personal with the Falls loved it. more »
Get up close and personnel to the pounding water of the American Falls. Raincoat provided to try and keep you dry. Great opportunity to experience the roar of the water. more »
Amazing place to visit . Mind you I visited this place in mid February so its was still very cold and frozen over, but based on what I was able to see it was very spectacular and and excellent experience I can only imagine how nice it would be in the spring defrost stages or late summer when there are clear openings and you can really put a picture to the sounds of thousands of gallons of crushing water. Can't wait to go back !!
I wasn't expecting such an educational walk through. The falls were great don't get me wrong but it was a great price just for the education I received about the falls. Would recommend. The parking was a bit pricey though at 10 dollars.
