Fun Fact: Did you know a Superman movie was filmed in Niagara Falls?

Starring Christopher Reeves and Margot Kidder, Superman II was filmed in Niagara Falls back in 1979.


One of the most important scenes in the movie was a child falling into the water above the Horseshoe Falls and being saved by Superman. Fret not though, a real boy was not used for the stunt! Rather, a dummy doll was thrown over the railing to appear as though a boy was moving closer to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls and Niagara River below.
