Table Rock Welcome Centre, Niagara Falls, ON

The Basics

Located on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, Table Rock’s viewing platforms offer arguably the best views of the thundering Horseshoe Falls, other than being in a boat beside them. In the center of the entertainment and retail complex is Niagara’s Fury—a multisensory 4-D experience that re-creates the creation of the falls. The entry to Journey Behind the Falls, which takes you underground and literally behind the falls, is here as well.

Most Niagara Falls tours, whether half-day trips from Niagara Falls itself or full-day excursions from Toronto, stop at Table Rock.

When to Get There

Businesses at Table Rock are open year-round except for Christmas Day. Peak season at Niagara Falls is summer, particularly July and August, when the falls are at their fullest and the weather is typically lovely—yet the attractions are quite crowded. Consider a visit after 5pm, or in spring or autumn when the throngs are thinner; winter is generally quiet and lovely, though very cold.

The Origins of the Table Rock Name

The original Table Rock was a large, flat rock that jutted out over Horseshoe Falls and was used as a viewing platform until the early 1900s. A series of rock slides chipped away at the rock; the biggest of these saw a man and his carriage swept over the falls in 1850—and he lived to tell about it! In 1935 the remainder of the rock shelf was destroyed over safety concerns.
