Experience the Journey of Power
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, as the years pass, the glory of the power station fades. 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!
