⚡"Black Adam" (4DX)‼️

Needs a location

🗣️📣 This is 4DX experience where your seat MAY move a LOT, water is sprayed, flashing lights, scents and fog may be released, etc.🗣️📣

Here's a 3 minute YouTube link so you're well-prepared ahead of time 😁:

"In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed, and Black Adam has gone from man to myth to legend. Now free, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern-day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone."

Castellani Art Museum visit (Free Admission)

Needs a location

Let's get our art on and visit the Castellani Art Museum in Niagara Falls.

From the website:

The collection has grown to include over 5,000 works of art including paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and photographs: dating from the 1850s to the present. The collection illustrates the development of modern art, focused primarily on art from the 1970s to the present. As the largest resource for the visual arts in Niagara County, situated at the heart of a dynamic world-class liberal arts university, our changing exhibitions are diverse and thought-provoking.

The musuem is located on the Niagara University campus. We can get free visitor parking passes inside the musuem.
