Challenging Niagara 1 x 60'
175 foot high, running at 50mph, dumping 2m litres of water a second – Niagara Falls is an awe-inspiring sight. But since the 19th Century, some have come not to see it, but to go over the edge in a barrel! Why? We meet a cast of the daring, the adventurous, and the plain crazy in Challenging Niagara.

In October 1829, Sam Patch, The Yankee Leaper, jumped over the Horseshoe Falls and became the first known person to survive. In 1901, 63-year-old Annie Edson Taylor was the first person to go over in a barrel, and survived unharmed. Legendary Niagara stuntman John David Munday has completed four successful attempts!

Since 1901 over a dozen people have intentionally gone over the Falls, some have survived unharmed, but others have drowned or been severely injured. Challenging Niagara brings together these stuntmen to provide an inside look at the world’s most famous daredevil challenge. Find out what it took to survive and learn what can go wrong from the stories of those who have failed.
