Located on the Hilton Property in Niagara Falls , The OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino is an exciting and important new entertainment venue for Niagara Falls that recently opened in October 2022 with the taping of the second season of Canada ’ s Got Talent and the first entertainment performance which featured veteran rockers LIVE . With a 5,000 total soft-seating capacity and no seat more than 150 feet away from the stage , the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino promises an exceptional experience for its attendees .

While walking among the rows of seats in the fan-shaped seating layout , which allows guests the best vantage points to enjoy a show from anywhere in the theatre , or standing on the over 6400 foot stage ( which is the largest in the area and is flanked by two large 30 ’ wide by 18 ’ high HD image magnification screens ) it ’ s hard not to be impressed by the spacious intimacy of the venue and the care that has been taken to accommodate the audience , entertainer and crew . For the latter , the venue allows for easy load in and load out and the flexibility for everyone to do their jobs with special components such as the consoles that can be raised or lowered for whatever is needed for the show .
