The Tunnel: New attraction offers fresh views of Niagara Falls

This summer, visitors in southern Ontario have a new way to see the spectacular Niagara Falls.

Niagara Parks Power Station has opened its new attraction, The Tunnel. 

Guests can ride a glass-panelled elevator 180 feet (54 metres) below the main generating hall and walk the 2,200-foot (670 metres) long tunnel that winds through the former hydro-electric station to an outdoor viewing platform where a breathtaking scene awaits. 

Take a look at the views of both the American Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls that Reuters’s Carlos Osorio documented earlier this week.
