Niagara Falls To Welcome Electrifying New Attraction

The Niagara Parks Power Station has been a quiet pillar in Niagara Falls since 1905, but it is now the talk of the town as Niagara Falls’ newest and much anticipatedNiagara Parks Power Station attraction.

After a long career as one of Ontario’s most important electricity sources, the station was left behind when technology moved forward but recent modifications to the facility will allow it to open to the public. When it opens at this Summer, the station which is home to massive turbines that once powered the province by converting energy from the Horseshoe Falls into electric power, is expected to become one of the most popular attractions in Niagara Falls.

Dormant for the past 15 years, the power station has been re-imagined and will offer two exciting attraction experiences. The daytime experience is a tour of history through science, restored artifacts, exhibits and interpretive installations. The attraction will open to guests on July 30, 2021 for daily guided and self-guided tours through August 15th, and then will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for Niagara Parks Power Station Currentsthe remainder of August.

This attraction though will really shine at night, when the experience evolves to include a 3-D multimedia experience dubbed “Currents-Niagara’s Power Transformed”. The night time show features spectacular state-of the-art sound and projection mapping technology for a electrifying light show to the beat of an energized musical score. The show immerses guests in the hydroelectric process by following a droplet of water on its journey through the historic turbines to become electricity. Visitors will have to be patient to experience the evening show as it will launch September 3, 2021.

This summer’s opening is a first step in the new journey for the Niagara Falls attraction. Phase two of development which will be completed in 2022, will allow guests to explore the vast tunnels and rooms deep underground the station that connect the building to the Niagara River and a viewing portal at the base of Niagara Falls.

Reserve your Niagara Falls Hotel Stay and experience the Niagara Parks Power Station when it opens to guests in July.

Introducing The New Sheraton Fallsview – Niagara Falls Premier Luxury Hotel

One of Niagara Falls premier hotels is about to unveil the results of a $50 million dollar, multi-year transformation, and the experience begins with the introduction of a new name.  The Sheraton Fallsview Hotel will operate with the new name of Sheraton Fallsview Hotel beginning in June 2021.Sheraton Fallsview Hotel

Renovation projects have touched nearly all corners of the 22-storey, 669 guestroom hotel bringing new experiences for guests. A pillar of the Niagara Falls skyline, and situated in a premier location directly across from Niagara Falls, the hotel has been working on the extensive updates and upgrades over the past 18 months.

All guestrooms and suites – many which offer floor to ceiling windows for uninterrupted views of Niagara Falls, and the Best Fallsviews Guaranteed – have been redesigned with guests in mind. Rooms have been furnished to provide an experience that combines luxury and comfort. Guests will find new headboards, bedding, contemporary furniture, new workspace desks and chairs, upgraded lighting fixtures, refreshed carpet and wall coverings in the new rooms. In addition, bathrooms in the majority of the hotel’s guestrooms have been updated to include modern, spa-inspired, walk-in showers.  The new luxury fittings complement existing room amenities that only Sheraton Fallsview offers in Niagara Falls, which include the Juliette Balcony found in nearly all guestrooms, and step-out Balcony in the Fallsview Corner Suites.

Welcoming, elevated and purposeful were keys when redesigning the lobby, top rated amenities and meeting and function space at Sheraton Fallsview.  To facilitate movement within theSheraton Fallsview King Guestroom hotel, a new arrival experience introduced an additional bank of elevators, while comfortable seating areas, and built-in tablets where guests can book a reservation at the #1 Italian Restaurant in Niagara Falls; Massimo’s Italian Fallsview Restaurant were also added.  Updates extend to amenities as well, including Massimo’s which has been refreshed with a new dinner menu emphasizing seasonal ingredients, and additions to their extensive wine list.  Another amenity to welcome updates is Christienne Fallsview Spa. Rated the #1 Spa in Ontario on TripAdvisor, the Spa welcomed upgraded changeroom facilities and new fixtures.  The largest hotel conference space in Niagara was not left out of the renovation process, with meeting rooms and pre-function space energized with new decor.

One of the hotel’s most extraordinary new experiences will be unveiled just in time for Summer! Niagara’s only Fallsview Rooftop Pool & Bar will feature the only outdoor pool in Niagara to overlook Niagara Falls, a new fallsview bar, and private cabanas one with an infinity hot tub. The new amenity is expected to set the mark as the place to be for Summer.

“Our project is now complete. Team members have shown a great commitment to the hotel throughout the multi-year process and we look forward to welcoming guests to the new Sheraton Fallsview.”  Don Calaguiro, General Manager Sheraton Fallsview

Maid of the Mist Electric Boats Hit The Water

It is certainly fitting that the announcement of a launch date for Maid of the Mist’s new electric boats came on Earth Day 2021.Maid of the Mist Electric Boats

The iconic attraction, which has shuttled guests to the base of Niagara Falls since 1846 has launched their season with the two new boats.  Maid of the Mist docks are only accessible in Niagara Falls New York, but the vessel’s journey is best viewed from Niagara Falls Ontario.

The new boats, named “James V. Glynn” and “Nikola Tesla” are the first two new all-electric, zero-emission passenger vessels in the United States. Maid of the Mist states the new boats provide a smoother, greener, and quieter ride in the waters of the Niagara River. Without the rumble of engine noise, guests will be able to fully embrace the roar of the Falls, while enjoying spectacular close up views of Niagara Falls.

Maid of the Mist collaborated with New York State Parks, New York Power Authority and ABB; a pioneering technology leader to create clean, renewable hydropower to operate the vessels. Each boat has been outfitted with high-capacity battery packs, integrated power and propulsion systems and the docks have been fitted with onshore charging systems for maximum reliability.

Maid of the Mist is one of two boat tour companies that make the journey to the Falls.  Maid of the Mist operates in Niagara Falls New York, and Niagara City Tours (formerly Hornblower Niagara Cruises) departs from the Canadian side.  Canadian guests will have to wait a bit longer for a tour to the Falls, with boats expected to take to the water once Ontario’s Stay at Home Emergency Order is lifted.
