Nothing says spring like flowers in full bloom and our boats returning to the water! After a long and bitterly cold winter, Hornblower Niagara Cruises officially opened for its 6th operating season on Wednesday, May 15th. This year, the official Canadian boat tour operator in Niagara Falls, Ontario hasn’t just opened with their two 700-passenger boats, but with a few new and exciting boat tours.
New Event = Drumroll, please!
This year, guests looking to experience the thundering Falls in a whole new light can do so with the brand new VIP Brews & Cruise Event launching on Friday, May 24th. This event series is Niagara Falls’ ultimate nighttime entertainment. It’s a new way to pre-party before embarking on a 40-minute Falls Fireworks Cruise. The 19+ event will include access on the 50-passenger state-of-the-art funicular cars, digital photo keepsake by Digital Attractions, 2 alcoholic drink tickets, live DJ entertainment, party appetizers, access to VIP Event Tent with private bar, and VIP pre-boarding for the Falls Fireworks Cruise.
This year, we are also excited to share that Niagara Falls’s famous fireworks show will ignite-the night for 82 consecutive nights over the Niagara Gorge. What does this mean for you? It means there are more chances to get outside and enjoy a night of fun, food, and laughter under the stars aboard Niagara’s most popular nighttime boat cruise. Tickets are limited and will sell out fast. Purchase tickets online ( LINK HERE) in advance. See the VIP Brews & Cruise 2019 Events Schedule & Times.
After 30 Years…They Are Back!
Nearly 30 years since the original cars stopped running along the Niagara Gorge walls, Hornblower Niagara Cruises is bringing back the incline railway cars with our brand new Hornblower Niagara Funicular. Two 50-passenger cars will transport passengers up and down the 18,000-year-old rock wall. These glass-enclosed, climate-controlled cars feature audio commentary, courtesy seating, and offer incredible panoramic views of the Bridal Veil and American Falls.
There is nothing quite like a keepsake photo souvenir to remember your visit to our attraction. Make the memories and hold onto the moments with a Digital Attractions photo of you and your group. Be sure to stop and smile as they snap your photo before boarding our boats. Don’t forget to pick up your photo at the Digital Attractions booth located in the Grandview Marketplace.
