Watch nature’s tug-of-war at the Reversing Rapids

The amazing phenomenon of the Reversing Rapids is a sight to behold. If you time it just right, you can watch the Bay of Fundy’s monstrously high tide reverse the flow of the mighty St. John River, even as it pushes through a gorge formed by the collision of continents millions of years ago. Get a bird’s eye view on the waves and whirlpools that result from nature’s tug-of-war, at Fallsview and Wolastoq parks.

More detailed information on this incredible natural phenomenon can be found on the Reversing Rapids Rack Card.
