New viewing platform to open at Niagara Falls

STORY: Niagara Falls has a

new viewing platform

Visitors will be able to

take in the roaring Falls

after walking through

this century-old tunnel

It opens to the public on July 1

DIRECTOR OF NIAGARA PARKS, KIM VINEY, SAYING:

“This is a 2,200 feet long tunnel, so the guest will take a glass-enclosed elevator down a 180 feet, down to the bottom into the wheel pit and then out the tunnel and into a brand-new viewing platform, which extends 65 feet out into the Niagara River and they are going to get spectacular new views of Niagara Falls.”

The tunnel starts at the

Niagara Parks Power Station

CEO OF NIAGARA PARKS, DAVID ADAMES, SAYING:

“Back in 1905, the first hydroelectric power plant opened on the Canadian site of the Niagara River, as a way of harnessing something new and creating something new called electricity or hydroelectricity. It led to the industrialization of South Ontario, western New York. And today, we have adapted it for use, this industrial heritage site, so the attraction of the generator hall floor. This weekend, July 1, I’m looking forward, we’ll open a tunnel which certainly completes the last piece of the puzzle that will tell you how the whole power station worked.”
