As was mentioned previously (here and here), Regis and Kelly will be coming to Niagara Falls.

Below is the entire press release as found on the Yahoo! Finance web site:

“Live with Regis and Kelly” Originates From the Beautiful Oakes Garden Theatre May 22 and 23, 2006

NEW YORK, NY–(MARKET WIRE)–Mar 9, 2006 — Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will head north to visit their neighbors just across the border, when “Live with Regis and Kelly” travels to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, for two shows airing May 22 and 23, 2006.

The visit marks a return trip for “Live with Regis and Kelly.” “Live” first ventured to Niagara Falls in 1996, shooting two shows at the gorgeous Oakes Garden Theatre. “Live” will return to the venue again this year. With its breathtaking backdrop of the American and Horseshoe Falls, Oakes Garden again will provide a stunning setting for the popular morning show.

“We’re always on the lookout for intriguing and picturesque destinations to which we can travel the show, and Niagara Falls is a perfect fit,” said Michael Gelman, executive producer of “Live.” “We had a great time when we last visited — the people are terrific and the venue is beautiful — and we can’t wait to make a return trip.”

“On behalf of the City of Niagara Falls and all of our partners — Niagara Fallsview Casino and Resort, Niagara Parks Commission, Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership, Canadian Tourism Commission and our local tourism stakeholders — we’re extremely pleased and honoured to welcome back ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’ to our community,” said Niagara Falls Mayor Ted Salci. “Having such high calibre entertainment come to our city truly illustrates what a great place Niagara Falls is and it helps us to showcase the many wonders that our city has to offer.”

“With Niagara as its backdrop, viewers from around the globe will experience the majesty of Niagara, all while being entertained by one of TV’s best-loved morning shows,” noted Jim Williams, Chair, Niagara Parks Commission. “Having Regis and Kelly join us in the Niagara Parks, home of the world’s most famous falls, is a great promotion for our community. Two great icons coming together: Niagara Falls and ‘Live.'”

Introducing the Niagara SkyWheel

No Comments

The March issue of the Clifton Hill Resorts Update newsletter was sent out yesterday and as promised, they have reveiled the name of the new Ferris wheel. It will be called the Niagara Skywheel:

Quality Inn / Giant Wheel Development Update

Please note: the above illustration is a representation.

We are proud to announce the “name” of our future observation ride, which will be known officially as the
“Niagara SkyWheel.” Our giant wheel will feature climate controlled gondolas providing year round sight-seeing comfort as you soar 175 feet above the Falls area. The mild winter has helped keep the SkyWheel construction on schedule, with a grand opening planned for the end of May.

As a part of the construction, the original Quality Inn driveway will be transformed into the official entrance of the SkyWheel. Quality Inn guests can enter the adjacent Comfort Inn driveway and check in at its respective lobby. This will be our common lobby for both the Quality Inn and Comfort Inn. A newly designed map of the complex and updated signs will help direct guests to their hotel wing and local amenities.

Also during the expansion phase, Quality Inn guests will be able to take advantage of the free deluxe continental breakfast, served overlooking the tropical indoor pool of the Comfort Inn.

Keep track of all the exciting developments in the coming newsletters.

As always, you can subscribe to the Clifton Hill Resorts Update newsletter by visiting the Clifton Hill Newsletter page.
