Paradise Found In The Mist
After exploring the lively sites and sounds of Toronto such as the CN Tower Edgewalk, Dundas Square, The Toronto Waterfront, St. Lawrence Market and Art Gallery of Ontario the film crew and host took a short 1.5 hour drive from the hustle and bustle of the city and arrived in Niagara Falls, Ontario. With less than 48 hours to spend in Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, the team made a visit to the Hornblower Ticket Plaza at Hornblower Niagara Cruises where they were anxious to get on the boats and into the mist and who wouldn’t blame them. With high 80 degree temperatures the team was championing the heat on land while they interviewed Hornblower Niagara Cruises General Manager, Mory DiMaurizio about the #inthemist experience. Shortly after the interview the team found themselves on the famous boat experiencing a world wide natural wonder and surrounding geological wonders. With hands clutching tightly onto ponchos the team was overjoyed when they experienced the power and thrill of the mighty Canadian Horseshoe Falls. With dripping wet faces and gigantic grins it was evident that the film crew had a ton of fun while capturing the footage of the famous waterfalls.
