Niagara Parks’ new and improved attractions make it a must-see
Whether you’re experiencing the thrill of Niagara Parks’ beloved attractions for the first time or getting to know its natural wonders intimately, you won’t be disappointed with the new additions.
The new must-see attraction in Niagara Falls is the Niagara Parks Powerhouse and Tunnel. Tour the beautifully restored generator floor of the century-old power plant, then travel in a glass-enclosed elevator 180 feet underground to explore the tunnel, which leads to an all-new observation deck with never-before-seen views of America and Canadian Horseshoe Falls. The Niagara Parks Powerhouse joins an exciting lineup of Niagara Parks attractions and experiences, including the iconic Table Rock Centre, the flagship tourist facility at the edge of the falls.
Since Niagara Falls is a global tourist destination, Table Rock has been an integral part of every visitor’s experience. The newly renovated Observation Center and Complex is also home to Niagara Parks’ flagship restaurant, Table Rock House Restaurant, and other culinary delights at Table Rock Market, as well as a completely renovated retail store, Table Rock Shop. Guests visiting the Table Rock Center will also be able to enjoy a renewed look at the flagship experience, Journey Behind the Falls, which offers stunning views from the base of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.
After touring the new interpretive exhibits that detail the falls’ geological formation, Indigenous connections and tourism origins, visitors will descend 125 feet into bedrock, emerging through 130-year-old tunnels that have been carved into the bedrock. As guests make their way to the lower viewing deck, they’ll feel the thundering vibration of Horseshoe Falls long before they’re breathless in the sheer magnificence of this 13-story wonder. After admiring the view from the observation deck, visitors can observe the power of water up close from the open portals located directly behind Horseshoe Falls.
This must-see attraction is the newest addition to Niagara Parks! The first major power station of its kind on the Canadian side, the Niagara Parks Power Station features immersive exhibits and restored artifacts that offer a first-hand look at how this hydroelectric pioneer harnessed the power of water to produce electricity for 100 years.
Complete the story by taking the glass-enclosed elevator 180 feet below the generator floor to the 2,200-foot-long tunnel that was dug using only lanterns, crude dynamite, pickaxes, and shovels during the construction of the building in 1905. For the first time ever, guests can now explore the fascinating subterranean infrastructure, leading to an all-new viewing platform, offering a never-before-seen vantage point of the American Falls, Bridal Veil and Canadian Horseshoe.
And at night, feel the power station come to life with Currents, a sound and light show that offers an unforgettable experience. As guests walk through the towering turbines, projected images and light around the generator floor respond to your movement and tell the story of Niagara’s hydroelectric power.
