Experience the Journey of Power

The beginning

Step back in time. Witness the Niagara River flow down from the walls and onto the floor around you before freezing as the Ice Age takes hold. As the earth warms again, feel the lush landscape fill once more with rivers and trees, along with a stunning new geological wonder… Niagara Falls!

Harness the power

The world’s most powerful waterfall inspired engineers and inventors hoping to harness its energy to power the industrialization of this region. This very station is the largest and most ambitious of these projects. Watch above and below you as its massive machinery lights up and comes to life for the first time, powered by the currents of the river. Then, overtaken by new technology, it goes dormant…


While the Power Station sleeps, the Niagara River continues to flow around you. Explore and use your movement to create currents in the water that join together to build momentum and flow back into the station. As you do, electricity begins to pulse from the generator, flowing up the walls and onto the ceiling. Your presence has reawakened the building... the transformation is complete!

The Full Power Station And Tunnel Experience

Experience the full Niagara Falls power story with the Niagara Parks Power Pass! This Pass includes day time admission and the all new night time experience. Gain access to the station's exhibits and travel 180 feet below in a glass-lined elevator before exploring the 2,200-foot-long tunnel leading to the river's edge. Then, return to the Power Station at Night for Currents, the sound and light show that transforms the heart of the station into an interactive event that outlines the impressive history of this cathedral of power. During the evening the Tunnel remains open allowing access to see the falls illuminated in a way that has never been seen before.
