“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

All of the posters make this movie sound so interesting and it really is not that great. You do learn some history on the falls and some of the dare devils (idiots) but that is about it. Unless you have the Discovery Pass I would not spend the money.

Thank you so much for your comments and review! I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy our film and found the posters misleading. Our film is called Niagara; Legend of Adventure and in the film we reenact 7 different historical stories related to the Falls and those people who challenged the mighty Niagara Falls. We feel that our film is a great way to start of a tour in Niagara and I am truly sorry that you didn't feel the same way. It is my hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in the Niagara Falls State Park.

“Fun to Watch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

It is a nice introduction to facts about Niagara Falls and not too long. If you want to use your time for other attractions, you can buy a video in the gift shop.

“Loved the history of the falls!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Our family all enjoyed the film, including our 3 year old son and 11 year old daughter. The movie sells out quickly during the summer time, so don't wait until the last minute to go buy your tickets. Also, you can not take food or drink into the theater. The film is a little dated but still very good. The history of the falls was very entertaining. We seen this film first prior to experiencing the falls and riding the Maid of the Mist. We're glad we seen the film first as we were astonished to view the falls from the Maid of the Mist and know that a young boy survived going over the falls. The theater was in great condition and very clean! We loved the film and highly recommend it for all ages.

We really do recommend seeing our film first because as you stated it gives an overall background and history of the Falls and those who went over the Falls. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you and your family back to the Niagara Falls State Park sometime in the near future. All the best!!

“Decent Introduction to Niagara Falls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Niagara Falls Adventure Theater provides a decent introduction and details some of the history of Niagara Falls. I think it does a good job of reenacting historic events around the falls. Yes, the film is a little dated, but I think it serves its purpose well. Be sure to check out the exhibits in the visitor center around the theater area.

The Adventure Theater is a good way to start a visit to Niagara Falls, and it can also be a good way to get out of the heat.
