Frequently Asked Questions
Question Does the water going over Niagara Falls just stop?
Answer  There have been many winters when the American and Bridal Veil Falls have been completely frozen over.
The Horseshoe Fall has never completely frozen over due to the much larger volume of water going over it.
However, it came close in 1848 when a huge ice dam build up in Lake Erie (which feeds into the Niagara River) caused the water to flow to a mere trickle until the dam burst.
