Niagara Falls

We had breakfast in the room then walked back down to the falls to get our vouchers turned into tickets. Our first stop of four was at Niagara’s Fury, a 4D movie. You walk in and they give you these plastic raincoats. You walk into this room and there is this cartoon of a beaver explaining how the falls were created, then you walk into this room and it squirts water at you and fake snow, so you get a little wet. I didn’t expect to get wet. Then we went to go and had lunch in the sun, waiting for our next activity to start at 2. It was Journey Behind the Falls. They take you down stairs to where you can get a picture then these elevators bring you down to these tunnels, and again they give you a little yellow plastic raincoat this time. It wasn’t that exciting because it is mostly in the tunnels. There is an outside part which gives you a close up look at it, then 2 little observation holes and all you see is water. After that we had some time before our next schedules activity so we got in line for The Maid of the Mist. That line was long, but the boat took a lot of people so it went fast. There they also give you these little rain coats and you get wet! They get you to take pictures here as well then lead you to the boat. We were one of the first in line so we were at the top front of the boat. When it was done, my face and front of my hair was very wet, but I tied the strings so my clothes didn’t get wet. When it was don’t we went to the People Mover stop, to get to the White Water Walk. That was boring, it was just a boardwalk down by the rapids. After we just went and got on the People Mover to go to the end of the line then back to the Queen Victoria Place. We walked back up to the hotel to get a break and have a nap cause I was pooped. Then we went to AlMacs where it was another buffet but this time the ice water wasn’t free and the food wasn’t as interesting. We stopped at Macs for milk then walked back to the hotel, and I watched Seabiscuit again, but form the beginning this time. Then bed time.
