The Roaring Sound of Niagara Falls: How Loud is it?

Niagara Falls is famous for its thunderous roar, a symphony of sound that can be truly awe-inspiring. The volume near the falls can reach an impressive 90 decibels or more, comparable to the rumble of a lawnmower or the purr of a motorcycle.


This magnificent cacophony is born from the sheer force of the water's flow and the tremendous amount of water cascading down the falls. The resounding noise is an integral part of the falls' identity, enhancing the already breathtaking experience of beholding this extraordinary natural wonder.
