The Whirlpool Aero Car (formerly called The Spanish Aero Car) travels safely between two different points of the Canadian shore of the Niagara River over the spectacular Whirlpool.
A round trip is about one kilometer (3,600 feet) and takes about 10 minutes to navigate.
The capacity of the car is 39 standing passengers.
A breathtaking view of the Niagara River's Whirlpool Rapids.
Built in 1913 by the Niagara Aero Car Company using Leonardo Torres Quevedos' patent.
Opened on August 8, 1916.
The Aero car was designed by a Spanish engineer, Leonardo Torres Quevedo and has been in operation since 1916. The cable car is suspended from six sturdy cables and offers a wonderful view of the Niagara Whirlpool which is formed at the end of the rapids where the gorge turns abruptly counterclockwise and the river escapes through the narrowest channel in the gorge.
