Niagara Freefall & Interactive Centre

The main attraction at the place is freefall in a vertical tunnel in which strong air currents lift you in the air. The participants wear special clothes that puff up when hit with the air currents coming from the ground. At first you go through training and explanations which take 25 minutes, then you start flying. A fun experience for the whole family. The Interactive centre has more attractions for people who enjoy action: Riding a mechanical bull, laser tag, a climbing wall, a simulator, and a video game arcade.
