Daredevil Exhibit in Niagara Falls, ON offers free admission with purchase of a Niagara IMAX theatre ticket until July 5, 2011.

June 30, 2011, Niagara Falls, ON IMAX Niagara is celebrating 2 daredevil anniversaries this holiday weekend. On July 2, 1984, Karel Soucek, self-proclaimed "last of the Niagara Daredevils" went over the falls in his red and white barrel. The IMAX Niagara Theatre is also commemorating the feat of George Starharkis, who plunged over the Falls on July 5, 1930. Soucek's attempt was successful, whereas the result was only favourable for Starhakis' 125 year old turtle as George died from his attempt.

The Daredevil Exhibit at the IMAX Niagara Theatre is home to both of these daredevil's barrels. Inside the gallery, people can hear the stories, touch the vessels and then imagine the courage (or the insanity) that is must have taken to climb into a barrel and throw yourself over the edge. The exhibit contains multiple barrels and artifacts along with the fascinating stories of the Niagara and of the Daredevils themselves. Of all the things to do in Niagara Falls, this truly is a hair-raising experience.

The IMAX Niagara Theatre, is offering Free Admission to the Daredevil Exhibit with purchase of an IMAX ticket until July 5th. In honour of Soucek and Starharkis, the anniversary of their stunts over Niagara Falls, people can see the Niagara Falls IMAX film then visit the gallery and touch a piece of history.
