“Maid of the Mist” Boat Tours To Continue [VIDEO]
A trip to Niagara Falls would not be complete without a ride on “The Maid of the Most”. It has been thrilling generations of visitors with its up close look at the majestic falls and the tradition will, thankfully, continue.
According to his official website Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced an agreement with the Maid of the Mist corporation that will allow the company to continue to operate in the Niagara Gorge for the foreseeable future.
The agreement provides for the Maid of the Mist to continue to operate in the Niagara Gorge and for it to produce increased revenues for Niagara Falls State Park. The family-run Maid of the Mist Corp., based in Niagara Falls, N.Y., plans to invest $32 million in the former Schoellkopf Power Station site to make it suitable for the winter storage and maintenance of its tour boats, and to provide amenities for public use and recreational activities. Upon completion, New York State Parks will own the improved facilities.
Never taken the ride? Well, there’s nothing like experiencing it first hand but here’s a short video to give you an idea of what to expect.
