The New York Power Authority’s Niagara Power Vista provides an exciting, hands-on interactive adventure, designed for all ages.

Watch the “war of the currents” between Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. Hold on tight as you take a virtual ride in our 4D theatre, by dropping into the river on your hydropower journey. Want a hair-raising experience? Touch the Van de Graaff machine to get some jolts without the volts.
