Daredevil Exhibit at Niagara Falls IMAX
When your adult group is in Niagara Falls, you should check out the Niagara Falls IMAX Theatre. It is located in the heart of the Niagara Falls tourist and entertainment district. At the location, group members will have the opportunity to see a film which is known as Niagara: Miracles, Myths, and Magic. You can also see the amazing Niagara Falls Daredevil Exhibit. It is the best source of daredevil and Niagara Falls history. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the experience.
The Daredevil Exhibit is the world’s largest Niagara Daredevil Exhibit. In the course of the visit, you and your group mates will hear the stories, feel the fear, and touch the actual daredevil barrels. The barrels are the true artifacts that survived the plunge. There have been 16 daredevils who have challenged the falls. This gallery is the only collection of the original daredevil barrels. You will see and touch the barrels, spheres, and chambers of death that carried the daredevils over the falls in Ontario, Canada. The team will also relive the stories of those who dared to take the plunge.
Annie Taylor was the first person to conquer the falls in a barrel. On October 24, 1901, she climbed inside her airtight wooden barrel. Annie was bruised and battered but made it through the journey. On July 25, 1911, the infamous Bobby Leach plunged over the falls in a steel barrel. He broke both kneecaps and his jaw in the course of his daring event. There have been others who have not survived the plunge such as Englishman Charles G. Stephens.
