The movie was ok. A little bit dated but the story was ok. If you were short on time and had to cross something off your "To Do List", chose this and the Aquarium of Niagara.

Thank you so much for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't find our film as exciting as you would have hoped. We really do recommend seeing our film prior to experiencing the Falls as it give you some insight to the history of the Falls and those who went over the Falls. It is my hope that you enjoyed the rest of your visit to the Niagara Falls Sate Park.

We saw this film after spending the day seeing all the sights on the Canadian side and stopped at the Visitor Center after crossing the Rainbow Bridge to the American side. The movie is a bit old, but still gives you a good understanding of the daredevils who have gone over the falls--though not why they would put their lives at stake. We were tremendously impressed by the reenactment of the two children thrown into the river upstream in a boating accident. The 17 year old girl was rescued 20 yards before the Falls (not clear, but presumably the Horseshoe Falls) and the 7 year old actually went over the Falls and survived, being picked up by one of the Maid of the Mist boats. Since we had done the Maid of the Mist and seen the power of the Falls from the Canadian side, this reenactment had a big impact on us. We then walked to Goat and Luna islands to view the 3 falls.

Probably less entertaining if you do this first. Wait till you've seen the power of the falls.

Ohhh...the family did indeed go over the Canadian Falls.

The movie itself was very well done. Large screen, kept 8 year old occupied and was educational without them realizing. Reenactments with actors well done and great soundtrack. My biggest complaint was that it was way too short for the cost. (Make sure you use a coupon found on the rack cards at hotels and visitors centers for this attraction.)

Movie takes you from early formation, discovery, pivotal role in British/French/Native American politics right up to daredevils and infamous rescues.

If it had been less expensive or longer I would have given a higher rating.

Tip: visit early in the morning for no lines or in the afternoon when you want a break from the heat

This 40 minute movie about the history of the falls was interesting and somewhat informative. There is a suicide at the beginning of the movie, though it is downplayed a bit as this is the "Maid of the Mist". Our children were less interested since this was basically the first attraction we visited.
