    Niagara Falls thunders into your heart

    No Comments

    From The Daily Journal (Kankakee, IL):

    Visitors hear the falls long before they see them. Each second, 74,000 gallons of water rush at 40 mph toward the brink and thunder over Niagara Falls.

    The water of the Niagara is not only noisy, it is beautiful. On a sunny day, the current roils to reveal forces of crystal, Caribbean-blue water. On a cloudy day, the palette darkens to a deeper blue, similar to a summer sky at magic hour. It’s the limestone that keeps the water clear; the limestone escarpment that follows the Niagara starts way back along the central section of the Mississippi River. We see it above ground in the bluffs and caves that line Midwestern waterways. Reportedly it goes underground to rise again out east. Or so I have been told. There’s plenty of folklore and facts about the great falls found on the border between Ontario, Canada, and New York State.

    From the UK Daily Mail (including pictures):

    There’s something perversely hilarious about watching others have the pants scared off them, which is precisely what happens in the Nightmares Fear Factory.

    The haunted house in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, uses actors, noises and spooky lighting – though it’s almost always pitch black – in the experience that takes between 10 and 15 minutes.

    While it’s more subtle in its approach to inducing fear, with more of a what you don’t know could hurt you-style thriller scare than blood and gore, the reactions are still priceless.
