“Take a walk like no other”
Attn: Hours vary Take a walk like no other, along a boardwalk at the very edge of one of the world's wildest stretches of whitewater! Marvel at the relentless power and beauty of nature, and see how the deep and narrow Great Gorge was created. Trillions of gallons of water are forced into this accelerating trough--the sight will take your breath away! First, you'll ride an elevator down 70 metres, then walk along a 73 metre tunnel to the boardwalk--305 metres (1,000 feet or ¼ mile) with stairs that lead to two observation areas at the edge of the river. As the water travels through the Whirlpool Rapids at White Water Walk, it is traveling at about 48 km/hr or 30 mph, creating the Class 6 Whirlpool Rapids.
Awesome view of the rapids! Long wait for elevator. Long musty tunnel to walk through before getting to the walkway. Wasn't bad until we got stuck in the tunnel on the way out when a tour guide was making their spiel. She was irritated when I tried to push through because I was having trouble breathing the musty air. Otherwise it was worth it.
This walk is absolutely breathtaking. The power of the rapids is something you must experience seeing it up close. Its an easy walk on a wooden board walk thats about a half mile long and its at your own pace so theres plenty of time to take photos
Every kid who grew up in the Toronto goes here at least once on a school trip. When you're 12 it's a pretty badass place to go and see all the white caps and the waves, but as an adult I can imagine it might be a little lack luster. However if you've got kids they'll love it.
