Discover the Energy of New York at the Niagara Power Vista

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. From seat-gripping virtual reality to hands-on experiments to the power of nature, the Power Player experience at the Niagara Power Vista is free and a must-see for all in the Niagara area!
