The 2,200-foot long tunnel is built under Niagara Falls cathedral of power and served as an exit point for water used in generating hydropower for over a century, Niagara Parks noted on their website.
A glass-enclosed elevator takes visitors to the tunnel, where they can walk through the space below the power station that takes them to a viewing area to see the beautiful views at Niagara Falls.
The power station, built in 1905 on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, has hidden decks and gives visitors a deep dive into the history of how workers kept it running for over a century". ~ Fox7austin.com.
