The theatre was great! It offered a movie that explained some of the history behind people trying to challenge the power of the falls. You will learn about the first woman to go over the falls in a barrel and also the many that have walked a tight rope over it! IF you like history and fun facts then you... More

Saw the movie, it's about some historical facts about the fall. It also focuses on a woman who requested to be put in a barrel and jumped off the fall. However, she died a few days later. Nothing special about the movie. If you need to kill time and have extra money, see it, otherwise spend time around the park... More

This is included with the discovery pass, and it is worth the time. The movie gives an interesting history of the adventure seekers at the falls over the years. It was also nice to take a break from all the walking with a comfy chair and air conditioning.

There was a small line for Adventure theater housed within the Visitor center but the wait was not longer. The Movie on Niagara was informative to some extent explaining the folk lore related to Maid of the Mist and the various adventures that people endured on the Falls. However, it could be made more informative on how Niagara was formed... More

The movie is a very well made history of the falls. We learned a lot. The theater is quite large so even on Labor Day weekend, we got in to the show without a terribly long wait.

I had a great experience at the Niagara Adventure Theater. The staff was extremely nice and outgoing. I would suggest this be the first thing you do when arriving to the area. The movie gives you a lot of information that is useful when you are near the falls. It's also right next to the Maid of the Mist; the... More
