Super villians and Niagara Falls

Would you believe there a series of GIANT sized tunnels and control rooms behind the wall of water at Niagara falls? I wouldn’t have until I saw these photos. It does makes sense in that Ontario Hydro has been developing the site and area heavily for 100 years. Three guys decided to sneak in past the inept henchmen, rappel down into the dark unknown depths and save the world …

“Behind the raging horseshoe falls of Niagara there lurks a dormant monster, a century old tunnel painstakingly laid brick by brick. There is no recorded tally of its human cost but in 1906 it would be the biggest tunnel of its type in the world. Like the secret hideout of a supervillain it defies belief and comprehension, a secret stronghold behind the crashing waterfall. A rappel through the treacherous bowels of a decrepit powerstation is the single entrance.”
