Soggy weather delays completion of Niagara Falls go-kart coaster
From Niagara This Week:
While it looks like a new go-kart coaster attraction at the top of Clifton Hill is nearing completion, Mother Nature has played havoc with getting site race ready.
The base of the track, including its ascending corkscrew, have been in place for weeks, but wet weather has delayed the pouring of concrete to finish the job, HOCO director of marketing Joel Noden said.
“There’s been many days where it’s rained or there’s been the threat of rain. There are a lot of slope and curves to the track, so we’ve put off pour days.”
While it was initially thought the attraction, officially named Niagara Speedway, would open this year, Noden said that probably won’t happen.
“Realistically, we’re looking at next spring for a launch date.”
