Niagara Parks Adventure PassJuly 23, 2017

Howard Johnson Hotel by the Falls offers a Niagara Falls Adventure Pass package.  The pass is hands down the most popular grouping of attractions.  This is everything you wanted to know about the Niagara Falls Adventure Pass and answers to the most frequently asked questions.      

There are 4 main attractions with the Niagara Parks Adventure Pass Classic.  It’s called the ‘Classic’ because this pass has been virtually unchanged since it’s inception.   We say virtually because in the past few years the biggest change for Adventure Pass was the boat tour that was previously run by the Maid of the Mist and is now currently run by Hornblower Niagara Cruises, but we’ll get to that later.

Adventure Pass Attractions Include:

Hornblower Niagara Cruises

Hornblower Niagara Cruises at the basin of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls

Tour down the Niagara River past the American and Bridal Veil Falls and onwards towards the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.  You’ll be on board either the boat Niagara Wonder or Niagara Thunder, built especially for the level 6 rapids and the power of the Falls that mesh to become the Niagara gorge.  The scenery is spectacular and If you’re not sure if you want to get wet, there is a glassed-in area on board that is sure to keep you dry.  Photo credit:  Christine Hess Photography located in Niagara Falls Canada.

Journey Behind the Falls

Journey Behind the Falls

Located at the Table Rock Welcome centre the Journey Behind the Falls is an elevator ride down to the bedrock of the Cataract tunnels.  Located one third behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls you’ll witness the falls from lower and upper observation decks. Watch while water comes thundering over the brink of the Falls, be sure to wear the provided poncho, you will get wet!

White Water Walk

White Water Walk Niagara Parks

Easier than hiking down the Niagara Glen to the level 6 rapids is the attraction White Water Walk.  A serious of wooden decks and walkways that take you along the Niagara River.  The White Water walk is Niagara’s own boardwalk along a geographical marvel of how the river has carved out the mighty gorge that was carved out 12,000 years ago.

Niagara’s Fury

Niagara's Fury Niagara Parks

An experiential experience of how the Falls was formed.  You’ll watch the entire show within one 3D room with parabolic screens, which create that immersive feeling.  It will snow, rain and rumble beneath your feet.  Children absolutely love it.

How the Adventure Pass Works

Here’s how the pass works if you bought the ticket with Howard Johnson’s we provide you with your Adventure Pass Tickets upon check-in.  Each pass includes a one-time admission to each one of the attractions listed above plus a two consecutive day pass to the Niagara Falls people mover system called the WEGO.  The two days pass to the WEGO system starts the moment you take your first ride.  The WEGO system offers a conveniently located stop directly in front of the Howard Johnson Hotel by the Falls.

You will need to activate your Niagara Parks Adventure Pass at any welcome Centre or attraction they run, however, we often recommend activating at the Table Rock Welcome Centre located beside the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, and also conveniently located by the Journey Behind the Falls and Niagara’s Fury.

Upon activation, the staff will help you book times for your attractions.  Bypass the line up for Hornblower tickets because all Niagara Parks Adventure pass holders go through the express check-in line.

Don’t Forget the Coupons

You’ll save approximately $19.00 per adult ticket and $11.00 per child ticket when you purchase the pass rather than buying each attraction individually.  You’ll also receive additional discounts off of other Niagara Parks Attractions such as The Butterfly Conservatory, Whirlpool Aero Car and the Floral Showhouse.  There’s approximately $100.00 worth of coupons included with your Adventure Pass, it’s no wonder this it the top attraction pass in Niagara Falls.

Howard Johnson Hotel by the Falls offers the Niagara Falls Adventure Pass package.  Save more if you book early and stay longer.
