Niagara: Miracles, Myths and Magic

Niagara: Miracles, Myths and Magic is a 1986 IMAX film directed and produced by filmmaker Kieth Merrill. The film, currently shown hourly at Niagara Falls State Park's Adventure Theater, shows the history of the Niagara Falls, dating back to the earliest legends.

The film also shows the creation and history of the Maid of the Mist boats.[1]

Part of the film's focus is people that braved the Niagara Falls, such as tight-rope walkers, barrel riders, and those unfortunate enough to accidentally plunge over the Falls. Actors portraying Annie Edson Taylor, Roger Woodward and Blondin played by Philippe Petit appear in the film.
