TRUTH !!
The reversing Falls of St. John, New Brunswick are located on a gorge that leads into the Bay of Fundy. At low tide the water comes cascading down on its way to the bay. At high tide, however, which in this part of the world is excessive, the bay's water level rises to a height five feet higher than the top of the falls. This causes a "Bore" or rushing tide, to flow back into the river, and thus it pushes the water back up the falls.
