We know our boat tours to the Falls offer a magical experience but this past Thursday visitors on board our ‘Voyage to the Falls Boat Tour’ witnessed the magic as illusionist and magician Greg Frewin, performed a special performance for the filming of the ‘Greg Frewin Magic Show’ that performs nightly in Niagara Falls, Canada.

‘International Grand Champion of Magic’, Greg Frewin earned his title by winning first place in all the World’s top magic competitions. Greg has appeared on the world’s top stages such as the Flamingo Hilton, Caesar’s Palace, The Tropicana in Las Vegas, and has been featured in over 35 TV shows worldwide. This past week, Greg along with his film crew chose two lucky Hornblower Niagara Cruises employees, Chad and Joanna to be part of the filmed spectacle that drew guests’ attention to the act that took place on the upper deck of the ‘Niagara Thunder.’  As the boat travelled past the American and Bridal Veil Falls film crew rolled their cameras as Greg incorporated water for his act to symbolize the abundance of water from the falls. Greg chose Hornblower Niagara Cruises not only for the sunning views of Falls aboard the boats but to also show the relation between the waterfalls and his onstage water illusion performance.
