“Go if you need to rest your feet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

We went to the adventure theater since it was included in the discovery pass. It was nice to get off our feet for awhile but that was really the only good thing. I expected a large movie screen but this was average if not smaller then a typical movie theater screen. It was a very old movie that honestly wasn't all that interesting. After about the first 15 minutes of it I was regretting taking the time out of our 1 day trip to the park to sit threw the movie. This place can really use a major upgrade.

Thank you for review and for purchasing the Niagara Falls USA Discovery Pass. I'm sorry to hear that we didn't met up to your expectations. We are indeed a large format film (45 ft screen) that reenacts 7 different historical stories about the legends of the Falls and those who went over the Falls. Hopefully you enjoyed the rest of your visit to the Park and found the Discovery Pass a great purchase.

“Go there if you have time to spare”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

You should keep this definitely as a last in the list and if you are doing one day just skip it. This is not interesting as it is neither informative nor interesting. The few interesting facts that you hear could be read in the falls information outside the theatre. I would prefer to spend the time in the scenic places outside rather sitting and watching this boring movie.

Thank you for your recent review. I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your overall experience with us. It is my hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in the Niagara Falls State Park and that maybe just maybe you remembered some of the historical facts you heard in our movie while viewing the Falls.

“Slightly interesting, but not very accurate”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I was looking for a film to give some history of the Falls, but this film was more legend and make-believe than anything else. It was full of evolutionary theory and we were disappointed to find out later that some of the most interesting details weren't even accurate. Good thing we bought a book about the Maid of the Mist! That had more accurate information. This is a good place to take a rest, but the content isn't worth the price, in my opinion.

Thank you for your recent review. I'm so sorry that you didn't find what you were hoping for in our film. Our film is indeed about the legends and daredevils that challenged the might Falls. That being said, we do have a mix of legends and true historical events that took place over the years at the Falls. Again, I am truly sorry that you didn't enjoy your time with us but hope that the rest of your time in the Niagara Falls USA State Park was a memorable one.

“Needs better restoration”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

This was part of a package deal that came with the stuff we really wanted to do. Good, informative film, but lots of flecks in the footage. Needs some restoration.

Thank you for your recent review. We are happy to hear that you found the film information and that you enjoyed the Discovery Pass that you purchased in park. It's a great way to see all of the major attraction in the Niagara Falls NY State park at such a discounted price. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Niagara Falls NY.

“Great! Do not miss this!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

See this 40 minute film first before going on into the Park and the other attractions. This movie gives such great insight and new stories you may have never heard about Niagara. After having watched it, I felt a stronger appreciation for the Falls, its history, and the Park. This film adds depth and context to your visiting experience...it is well worth the time and the money. It was part of our $30 pass and we loved it!
