More Information on Niagara Falls
As the helicopter gently lifts off from its base location, the awe-inspiring views of the Niagara Region begin to appear below. Cameras should be ready to go right from the start! Beginning with the Sir Adam Beck Generating plant and the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture, the tour follows the Niagara River from the Whirlpool area (look for the Spanish Aero Car crossing the gorge), over the Whirlpool Rapids and the Rainbow Bridge.
The green grass and floral beauty of Queen Victoria Park stretches below as the helicopter passes by the American Falls and the Skylon Tower. Just when it looks as if you may reach the Minolta Tower, the helicopter begins to change direction as if following the curve of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls! Rainbows appear and disappear from all directions. The helicopter begins to level off and continues along the route back to base. The heliport is centrally located along the Niagara Parkway, just minutes from the Falls.
