Niagara Falls Incline Railway

The Falls Incline Railway, for instance-- a 50-metre funicular railway that takes travellers up and down a small section of the slope leading to the Niagara riverbank. While it offers breathtaking views, the ride is short. But it saves pedestrians at least twenty minutes’ walking time in getting from the Table Rock Welcome Centre – and is associated attractions, including the Journey Behind the Falls – to the Fallsview Tourist Area and back. It’s the best way to travel from the heart of the town to the rim of the Horseshoe Falls with ease.
