From the Niagara Falls Review:

Outdoor skating near the brink of Niagara Falls could become an “iconic” winter attraction the way it has in New York City’s Central Park and Rockefeller Center, says Winter Festival of Lights manager Dino Fazio.

The festival is firming up arrangements for the Rink at the Brink, an outdoor skating rink near Table Rock House right next to the Horseshoe Falls.

“It’s for real. We’re still working on dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s. We just have a few things that have to be finalized,” Fazio said Wednesday.

His organization expects to formally announce the rink project in late September.

5 Comments on New winter tradition: Skate by the falls

  1. Adam says:

    This is a really great idea. I can’t believe it hasn’t been done before.

    That said, I wonder how the falls mist would effect the ice.

    We use to skate by the Falls when I was a kid. I’m guessing mid 70’s. Across from Table Rock in the area just to right of the power building ( where that US/ Canada flag light display is in the winter ) The mist is what made the ice surface right on top of the grass. I probably have 8mm home movies in a closet somewhere.

  3. Dan M. says:

    This is a much needed attraction. I really look forward to checking this out.

    I thought that the mist would be a good thing, removing the need for a zamboni. Guess not.

    I’ve been an ice skater my whole life!! I’m really excited for this!

    but…unfortuately…it’ll keep the table rock parking up around $20 all winter…but it is a great idea…
