If you’re looking for your latest Instagram post or selfie opportunity, you might want to look across the border.

Niagara Parks is unveiling its new Illumination LED light display Thursday evening – promising new, brighter, more energy-efficient Xenon lights with 1,800 color combinations on the Canadian side of the falls.

From North Country Public Radio:

Parks officials in New York are planning a project of historic significance: temporarily shutting off the American Falls. That will dramatically alter a natural wonder that attracts millions of tourists from around the world.

The Niagara Falls State Park project is designed to replace two pedestrian bridges that are over 100 years old. Those bridges connect the main section of the park to Goat Island, which splits the Niagara River into two falls, one in Canada and the other in the U.S.

Shutting off the flow of the river and the falls will give construction workers access to the bridge supports.

From the Niagara Falls Review:

After several delays, the Whirlpool Adventure Course will not open this year, and company officials are now pinning their hopes on next spring.

“There’s two outstanding variance issues with the (Technical Standards Safety Authority) that we are continuing to move forward with, pursuing the variances,” said Lindsay DiCosimo, marketing and communications manager for WildPlay.

“We are asking to have the exact same variances provided to the Whirlpool Adventure Course that they have granted to multiple parks in the past, including ones in Ontario, and ones out in British Columbia.”

From Forbes.com:

It’s a tall order to be one of America’s most iconic landmarks, especially in a country that boasts Yosemite Valley, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and dozens of other natural wonders that exist nowhere else on earth. But ask any American—or virtually anyone in the world who’s travelled to the U.S. for that matter—and it’s almost a sure bet that they’ve heard of Niagara Falls.

Note: The Review is a little slow on this one. I posted about this back at the beginning of June. Of course, they were able to get more details than I posted.

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Construction has begun on a $3-million circus-themed mirror and laser-maze attraction on Clifton Hill.

It will replace the former Brick City, which was a giant mini city of Legos.

That attraction was demolished last fall after a fire in the attic of the Haunted House next door in August 2014 caused water and smoke damage.

“It was a gift store that was built in 1960, and then it had a Cinema 180 movie theatre on top of it, which then became Brick City,” said Niagara Clifton Group president Charlie Burland…

He said construction on the 2,500-square-foot Big Top Amazing Mirror and Laser Maze attraction began right after Labour Day, and the aim is to open between April and June.

He said the Big Top Amazing Mirror and Laser Maze will cost around $3 million.
