From a Seat-Gripping Virtual Reality Ride to Hands-On Experiments to the Power of Nature, Discover the Energy of New York at the Niagara Power Vista

More than 7 million visitors have come to NYPA’s Niagara Power Vista, named a "10 Best in Niagara" by USA Today: 10 surprising reasons you'll fall for Niagara

The geology of Niagara. The argument between two electricity titans. The chance to design your own dam, to operate a power grid during a storm, and to walk through a turbine. A high-tech virtual ride that takes you plummeting from the sky and into the Niagara River; shooting through the penstocks and swirling around a spinning turbine; then zipping at high speeds along high-tension power lines across the landscapes of New York State. The experience at the Niagara Power Vista Center is on the don’t-miss list for the Niagara area and is free to all.
