Lockport Cave and Niagara Zipper
Just 30 minutes from iconic Niagara Falls (via Route 31 East) in Lockport, New York, you will find popular landmark attraction Lockport Cave & Underground Boat Ride. This attraction allows adventurous groups on Niagara Falls and Buffalo getaways an interactive and informative 70-minute guided tour through America’s industrial history via an underground cave tour and boat ride. Not only that, but you can also zip up to the Niagara Zipper while here, providing a high flying thrill ride over the Erie Canal itself! Talk about an adventure!
During your underground tour, your group will explore the renowned Flight of Five Locks, visit ghostly ruins from an earlier industrial age, and wander through an awesome 1600 foot tunnel blasted out of solid rock in the 1800s. America’s longest underground boat ride ferries you through a dimly lit portion of the raceway that once supplied water to power three industries; investigate interesting geological formations at all stages of development and marvel at fascinating artifacts left behind by men of iron constitution who labored – and even gave their lives - to build the magnificent passageway in the early days of the iconic Erie Canal.
After your tour, prepare to soar over the Erie Canal Basin Gorge, above the historic waters of the Erie Canal, as you race your friends going 40 mph across the way. The lines (2 over and 2 back) range from 600 feet to 800 feet and will give you an unforgettable experience filled with views you simply won't experience anywhere else.
The breathtaking view has been called spectacular by visitors and is one of the most photographed sites in the world.
