Cave of the Winds is an extremely popular tourist attraction on the American side of Niagara Falls. The original natural cave behind Bridal Veil Falls was destroyed in a rockslide in 1954. Now the area behind Bridal Veil Falls is covered in redwood boardwalks and viewing platforms, ready to receive the tourists who descend 175 feet in a specially built elevator.
Ponchos and slippers are provided for each visitor, but it should be noted that you will probably get very wet anyway, as the power and might of the falls is like a tropical storm and soaks everything in the immediate area. The wooden platforms are removed every year in the late fall to prevent ice damage and are replaced in the spring; special tours are offered in the spring to visitors interested in watching park workers put the boardwalks back into place.
