If you're tired of the sunshine and the roar of the Falls, why not try walking in total darkness while scary monsters leap out at you? That's the gist of this haunted house, where you never know what will come at you next and what will send you screaming towards the exit. But don't worry, you simply yell out "screamers" and the ordeal is over; you'll simply join thousands of others on the Chicken List.

The 500 odd birds of 80 different species are all free flying and the rain forest of tall trees and waterfall complete the amazonian experience.

The Observation Deck in the Niagara Falls State Park is the perfect place to simultaneously view all three waterfalls - the American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls that together make up the Niagara falls. The Deck at a staggering height gives an unrestricted view of the thundering waters, and is also a good spot for some birdwatching. The Bald Eagle, falcons and gulls are some commonly spotted birds here. The Observation Deck has both an indoor and an outdoor area with numerous restaurants also lining the deck. A little known fact about the Observation deck is that the decks are rebuilt each year, and due to the ice - cold waters, each team of labor can work for only 20 minutes at a time!
