Niagara Parks Power Station Review

New Niagara Falls Attraction

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.

One is during the day when the generator floor will be open for exploration. The other is at night with a show called Currents: Niagara's Power Transformed, an immersive multimedia experience.

Two ways to see the Niagara Parks Power Station

Daytime power station experience

In the daytime, the Niagara Parks Power Station is open for visitors to come and walk the entirety of the ground generator floor. In this landmark attraction, history comes to life.

Nighttime Currents immersive light show

If you're looking to do any sort of hiking trail in Iceland, you absolutely need an app for Iceland that not only has incredibly detailed trail routes, but is also one that works offline.

Tickets for the Niagara Parks Power Station

There are distinctly two different ways to see the Niagara Parks Power Station but there are actually quite a number of types of tickets that can be purchased that's worth breaking down.

Ground generator floor review

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.

Currents: Niagara's Power Transformed review

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.
