The extra cookie goes to quickreaver for investigating this mystery and getting an answer from Perry Battista:


That artwork is awesome. Hee...the place even has a hot tub!

What's the meaning do you think? I mean...there's gotta be a meaning right? Situations often have the boys over a barrel - so I suppose it could be a reference to that.

Woot! I am ridiculous happy about this. Fans rock. The crew of SPN rock!

Actually, the image used in the brochure is a picture of the American Falls (see the third photo down on the Wiki page), which is a part of the Falls that's only on the US side.

It's identifiable as the American Falls because of the Bridal Veil, that little skinny bit of waterfall separate from the rest of it.

There have been a number of daredevils over the years who have attempted to go over the Canadian side (the much larger and more dangerous waterfall) in wooden barrels. As galwithglasses says, that's where the term came from.

That's great info. Thanks! I've updated my motels post with this added info. I reckon it's spot on. :))

No problem! I was there on vacation back in 2002 with my mom. If anyone ever asks, stay on the Canadian side of the river instead of the US side. The Canadian side has tons of tourist attractions and a casino!

Thanks for the catch on the falls. Looking at it again, it doesn't have the curve of the Canadian falls. I've only ever been by the Horseshoe ones and didn't look too closely. I really can't believe anyone survived going over in a barrel or anything else. They're just so massive and there's so much water. The roar of the water is enormous.
