From a Seat-Gripping Virtual Reality Ride to Hands-On Experiments to the Power of Nature, Discover the Energy of New York at the Niagara Power Vista Center

The geology of Niagara. The argument between two electricity titans. The chance to design your own dam, to operate a power grid during a storm, and to walk through a turbine. A high-tech virtual ride that takes you plummeting from the sky and into the Niagara River; shooting through the penstocks and swirling around a spinning turbine; then zipping at high speeds along high-tension power lines across the landscapes of New York State. The experience at the Niagara Power Vista Center is on the don’t-miss list for the Niagara area. And it’s free to all. No wonder more than 7 million visitors have come to see it.
