    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    An incident that occurred during the long weekend at an attraction on Clifton Hill is just another example of how important the Niagara Regional Police’s casino patrol unit is to the Niagara Falls tourism core, says Niagara Clifton Group president Charlie Burland.

    Burland, whose family has owned property on the north side of Clifton Hill for about 90 years, said fire alarms at his haunted house attraction went off around 1:40 a.m. Saturday.

    Burland said he has hundreds of security cameras throughout his properties and footage showed one male in a group of young men grabbed a fire extinguisher in the middle of the haunted house and shot it off.

    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.

    You ask… We answer.

    Q: In Niagara Falls on Clifton Hill once stood the Adventure Dome. I was wondering what was going to be built there? It’s been vacant for a few months now since the demolition. I have lived in Niagara Falls for 31 years and it was a childhood memory going to the Adventure Dome.

    A: There will be new adventures with mirrors and lasers in the dome’s former spot on Niagara Falls’ popular hill.

    Niagara Clifton Group president Charlie Burland, whose family has owned property on the hill for 90 years, said the Adventure Dome…
