    You can’t miss President Joe Biden at the top of Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, but some Americans do.

    Something about a bureaucratic ArriveCan app, to be filled out ahead of time, asking for vaccine status, has slowed tourism down.

    “The tourism industry accounts for $105 billion in Canada, and 40,000 jobs are directly related to tourism here in Niagara,” Niagara Mayor Jim Diodati said Wednesday from Ottawa when he and other border-town mayors went to Parliament Hill to try to talk some sense in to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    Ripley’s Selfie Studios, which opened at noon Thursday, offers 23 themed installations visitors can interact with. From a disco to a retro diner to a Niagara Falls tightrope, it’s meant to embrace the kitsch and get social media clicks.

    “We wanted something new, different and fresh,” said Peter Doyle, regional manager of Ripley Entertainment for Canada.

    “This really captures something very creative. It targets teenagers and young adults and they’ve been very successful elsewhere. You’re only restricted by your own creativity here.”

    At the time, officials said the 18,000-square-metre building, which will be connected to Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort by an enclosed pedestrian walkway, was expected to open in June 2019.
