Awesome power as the they open the flood gates and the water gushers through. It takes amazingly long for the river bottom to fill downstream but boy when it comes it comes with a roaring power. It is cool to see the river bed (bed rock and boulders) fully exposed and then being filled violently with water, huge rapids and... More

The dam is very big and impressive, unfortunately during winter the water doesn't flow through and this is not real waterfall. The other side of the dam is still dry. Seems the waterfalls are open only during summer time at 6PM every day when they release the water

Just great, everybody should see this one at least once in life time. The water show is running every day during summer time around six o'clock.

This waterfall is a must see!! Normally it provides about 4% of Finish energy, but in the summertime it opens at 6 p.m. to let out the huge amount of water to please tourists. The water runs into the Imatrankoski river - great!

It is like a miracle - you can feel the strength of nature. Although this is an artificial thing - you feel no human tracks there - only water and stone!

We've been to see the Imatra Waterfall a lot of time during this years, and it's always beautiful and a must see in Imatra, Finland. Lovely 20 minutes to pass with Family and listen to the nice music during the Waterfall.

We did not actually see the waterfall with the music, we knew that in advance. But it was a beautiful scenery nevertheless. Though we managed to see the dam doors being opened one side at a time (to release some pressure perhaps) so the only thing we actually missed was the music. I am sure it is much more magnificent...

We visited at the right time but the wrong season.. The riverbed in itself is pretty awesome but we were weeks too early to see the waterfall : ( Since I could not find the information on the internet -I made a picture of the poster advertising the event!

I was so ready for the music show and all the lights after reading all the reviews!!! But... when we got there the hotel informed us that there had been so much water this spring that the doors of the dam are open the whole time. The shows are not on until the very last weekend of May... yep, missed... More

Rocks are beautiful as everywhere in Karelia - but an action is only halfhour a day, so you need to plan carefully
