    Rita’s Italian Ice to open on Oneida Lane

    No Comments

    I haven’t seen this announced anywhere, but the other day when I was walking down Oneida Lane I noticed that the former Brick City location will re-open as a Rita’s Italian Ice.

    The work is coming along nicely on the new Big Top Amazing Mirror & Laser Maze. I haven’t heard when they are hoping/planning on opening.

    I took these photos on Saturday morning.

    Mirror maze attraction coming to Clifton Hill

    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.

    Back in June I posted about the new attraction that is going in where Brick City was located. As you may recall, that building was torn down and it is an empty lot right now. The lot is fenced off and there are signs up showing the name of the attraction and that it is opening soon. Well, here we are at the end of the summer, and nothing has been done yet.

    I was surprised to see that they’ve even had leaflets available talking about the new attraction. I would assume it will be open for next year, but only time will tell.

    Brick City is back?!

    You may recall that Brick City used to be on Clifton Hill (in the old Adventure Dome). It was operated by Niagara Clifton Group. However, after a fire in 2014, it was closed, and eventually the building was demolished. I hadn’t heard anything about the Brick City attraction, so I assumed that it was gone forever. However, the other day I was walking up Oneida Lane (off of Clifton Hill… the same street where Mystery Maze is) and there was a building beside the Upside Down House called Brick City. What?!

    They don’t seem to have a real web page, but they do have a page on Facebook. It looks like the re-opened in April. I’m surprised I never heard about this.

    New attraction coming to Clifton Hill in place of Brick City

    1 Comment

    A couple of days ago I noticed some new banners/signs along the fencing where Brick City used to be. You may recall that there was a fire almost two years ago in the Haunted House attraction (see here, here or here) and Brick City ended up with a lot of water damage. The ended up tearing the place down and it has been empty for a year or so. Now it appears they are finally going to move ahead with a new development… The Big Top Amazing Mirror & Laser Maze.

    Attractions closed after Clifton Hill blaze

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    A small electrical blaze on Sunday led to the closure of nearly an entire block of attractions on Clifton Hill Monday.

    Brick City, The Haunted House, Bronto’s Playland and The Fun House, along with a gift shop, were all closed from water damage after firefighters put out a minor fire Sunday around 12:30 p.m.

    The blaze started in the attic of The Haunted House and was quickly put out, but water from the hoses forced the attractions to close. Guests at the nearby Travelodge at the Falls also had to be relocated to other hotels when the power went out Sunday.

    Several weeks ago I received the latest newsletter from the Niagara Clifton Group (the Travelodge, Fun House, Brick City, etc). Just in case you were wondering, I did not post the wrong newsletter… it did say March Break on it.
