Table of Contents
Many hotels offer the possibility of renting a wheelchair or scooter, and to make sure that it will be available, it is good to book them when booking the room. Many attractions also offer this opportunity for free, but there the principle is that the first person in need receives a wheelchair, i.e. there is no advance reservation.
Table Rock Welcome Center, for example, has 8 chairs, Floral Showhouse and Butterfly Conservatory have one each. Marineland offers wheelchair rental for a fee, which can be found at the Aquarium Dome.
Many companies offer the possibility to rent mobility scooters and wheelchairs with the possibility to deliver them to a certain point in Niagara and then pick them up from another point at an agreed time.
Examples are eSkoot Niagara, RentMe Niagara Falls, Motion Specialties, Pharmashield Dispensary, and Queen Street Pharmacy. It is a good idea to book the necessary equipment in advance.
