Fallsview Indoor Waterpark
For the ultimate Family Day experience in Niagara Falls, visit the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark for 3 acres of indoor water fun for the whole family.

Home to 16 waterslides, a 1,000 gallon tipping bucket, giant indoor pool, plunge bowl, adult-only Jacuzzis and so much more, people of all ages are guaranteed to have an amazing time.

Explore Niagara’s most iconic attractions and experiences under the umbrella of Niagara Parks. For a breath of the tropics visit Butterfly Conservatory and the more than 2,000 vibrantly coloured butterflies which flutter freely throughout the lush vegetation and trickling waterfalls. For a different perspective of our famous Falls visit Journey Behind The Falls and see the cascading curtain of water from behind the veil and experience the thunderous vibrations as one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashes down in front of you.
Niagara Falls Illumination
Experience the beauty of Niagara Falls bathed in a colourful display each night. While the Falls are spectacular at all times of the day, they are mesmerizing at night when lit in a brilliant rainbow of colour thanks to LED light. The Falls Illumination display begins each night at dusk and can be enjoyed from the comfort of a Fallsview Room or suite at one of the Fallsview Hotels or on an evening walk!
