Something big is opening in Niagara, and it will let you experience the falls in a whole new way. After much anticipation, The Tunnel at the Niagara Parks Power Station is officially launching on July 1.

The massive attraction takes you deep underground where you can explore a historic tunnel that leads to breathtaking views of the falls.

Located 180 feet beneath the Niagara Parks Power Station, the tunnel once served as a way of emptying the water used in generating hydropower. Visitors will follow the exact path that the water did for over 100 years.

The experience begins with a glass elevator ride deep underground to the tunnel wheelpit. As you descend, you'll see the various station floors located below the earth's surface.

Once you get to the wheelpit, you'll embark on a 2,200-foot journey through the cavernous tunnel. Along the way, you'll discover interpretive installations and exhibits where you can learn about the tunnel's history.

The highlight of the attraction is the platform at the end, which offers a brand new perspective of the lower Niagara Gorge and never-before-seen panoramic views of Niagara Falls.

The platform offers views of both the Horseshoe and American Falls. As you gaze over the scenery, you'll feel the mist of the falls and see the cruise boasts pass right in front of you.

The Tunnel is the second phase of the Niagara Parks Power Station, which opened its immersive sound and light experience in July 2021.
