After exiting the Theater, you will enter the Hoover Dam Powerplant. From here, a 70-second elevator ride brings you 530 feet down through the rock wall of Black Canyon to begin a 30-minute guided tour. You'll exit the elevator into a tunnel that was drilled in the 1930s during the construction of the Dam, and take a short walk to the Penstock Viewing Platform.
Penstock Viewing: This location is on the top of one of the four the huge 30-foot-diameter pipes that can transport nearly 90,000 gallons of water per second from Lake Mead to the dam's hydroelectric generators. An animated display shows the description of the complexities of the construction of the dam, and how it currently operates.
Powerplant Generators: A quick elevator ride up to the Nevada powerplant balcony takes you to a panoramic view of the 650-foot-long Nevada wing of the power plant and eight of the dam's 17 huge generators. Also, don't miss the beautiful and intricate terrazzo floor designs under your feet. A great spot for pictures!
After exiting the interior portion of the tour, you will have some free time to explore on your own to see the Hoover Dam and all of its magnitude.
