Sensational Saturdays: Transmitting Fun!
This free family fun event will highlight the Niagara Power Vista’s new Transmission Grid Table at the New York Power Authority’s newly renovated visitor center, 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston, N.Y. Use custom-made hydro-plant, community, industry and renewable source pieces on a one-of-a-kind MultiTaction touch and play table to create your own transmission system. Connect wrong and you could cause a virtual explosion or blackout. Don’t worry, you can always reconnect until you get it right! Guests are also encouraged to explore all the new state-of-the-art exhibits. Visitors can take a seat in a 4-D theatre virtual roller coaster ride, create a transmission distribution system on a one-of-a-kind transmission grid table, build a dam or simulate the coordination of power across the state during bad weather. Parking and admission are free at the Power Vista. Guests can also board the Discover Niagara Shuttle stopping at attractions located between Niagara Falls and Youngstown. The Niagara Power Vista is featured on the Niagara Falls USA Discovery Pass. Turn in your Discovery Pass coupon for a Power Vista gift.
