Niagara Falls has a brand new attraction. Where once, this was something you could only catch a glimpse of during the once-a-year Doors Open, the Niagara Parks Power Station is now finally open to the public where you'll be able to delve into the history, engineering, and science, while marvelling and the thrilling revival.
As an engineer-by-education, I appreciated how they were able to take complex concepts and make them easily digestible through their series of displays and in particular the Follow the Flow model that shows where the water comes in and out.
When they say that the station comes to life, it's no joke. From the freezing of the Ice Age, lush landscapes painted on the walls and floors, the swirling of lights around the giant alternators, a TRON-like moment, and animated characters peeking out the windows, it all felt so real.
