Niagara Falls is undoubtedly a popular tourist destination, with visitors coming from all over the world to take in the breathtaking views. Niagara Falls has found a cheerleader in every traveller, from regular tourists to international celebrities.

According to reports, a 2198-foot tunnel was built on the Canadian side more than a century ago and has now been opened to reveal the incredible scale of the engineering marvels.

According to reports, the power station, which operated from 1905 to 2006, helped divert water from the mighty Niagara River to power giant generators that electrified regional industry and helped Buffalo, a nearby Great Lakes port, become known as the City of Light.

According to reports, a glass-enclosed elevator transports visitors to the tunnel, where they can walk through the space beneath the power station to a viewing area with breathtaking views of Niagara Falls.
The power station, built in 1905 on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, also has hidden decks and allows visitors to delve into the history of how workers kept it running for over a century, according to the report.
