We found the movie to be an interesting history of the Falls since their discovery and recreation of some of their colorful stories very entertaining. It's worth the cost and time to learn more about this natural wonder, as well as to spend time reading the visual displays in the Visitor's Center, before striking off to experience the Falls themselves....

To sit and watch a movie, It's interesting and informative about some of the history. It's also a chance to get cool in the air conditioning on a hot day. Probably reason number 2 for going. Reason number 1 is it's inclusion in the package deal with Cave of the Winds and Maid of the Mist.

Its located at the visitors center and this would be your first place where you also need to collect your shuttle bands Its a movie show where you can see what all people have done in order to conquer the falls from walking to cycling to rolling in a drum on a zip line across the falls

Some people in our group loved it. More information about niagara falls from a first person perspective and some shots from back in they day and what people used to do to conquer the falls. I like it and so did my son. My siblings and some of the older folk heard a lot of these or read them elsewhere... More

My husband and I would have given the film 3 stars, except that our 6yo son was entertained and really enjoyed it. Poor definition and cheesy acting. Don't prioritize this experience.

We have been to Niagara Falls twice and both times it was very crowded and we were unable to take the boat rides. Seems to be a lot of confusion in the visitor center with lots of people trying to figure things out. Wait for women's restroom was terrible. So with all this in mind yesterday we decided to see...

Interesting movie. Worth the time to go see it if you get the Discovery Pass. It's a 30 minute film that is shown every 45 minutes. My children kept talking about various parts of the movie afterwards throughout our weeklong visit to the area. Large screen, and comfortable seats. My daughter said that she wishes we'd seen it first (to... More

Educational movie about niagara falls. Took about 30 minutes and is included in the adventure pass. Good to see first to get a background on the falls before the falls experience

Enjoyed this 30-minute movie. Well put together with interesting information. Will say they avoided details of any unsuccessful over-the-falls events/ tragedies. Worth the viewing if you purchase the Discovery Pass.
