    From Niagara This Week:

    The natural wonder that is Niagara Falls has been viewed from about just about every angle and every way, but a B.C. company has found one more way to experience the falls.

    “The common denominators is that it’s exhilarating,” said WildPlay Niagara general manager Rich Merlino.

    The MistRider Zipline to the Falls held a media launch Wednesday, July 20, inviting media from across the globe, politicians and dignitaries to try out the 670-metre-long zipline that takes riders through the Niagara Gorge towards the famous Horseshoe Falls. The zipline gives people another way to view both the Canadian and American falls.

    Speaking at the launch MP Wayne Gates called the zipline just one more reason to people will want to come to Niagara Falls and the entire Niagara region.

    “Come for the falls, stay for the hospitality,” he said.

    Nik Wallenda’s motto in life is never quit.

    So when asked Wednesday about remaining opposition to his plan to walk a wire across the Canadian Falls, he said he’s approaching the whole effort as if failure isn’t an option.

    “My dream actually is to walk right into the middle of that mist and disappear and walk out the other end,” said Wallenda who joined local officials during a press conference at the Top of the Falls Restaurant overlooking the spot on Goat Island where he said he would like to take his first step on his wirewalking journey.
