    Rooftop roller coaster latest addition to Clifton Hill

    No Comments

    From Niagara This Week:

    Clifton Hill has long been described as ‘carnival-like.’ Cotton candy. Ferris wheel. Go-karts. Pretty soon, you can add roller coaster.

    Owner Ian Paul calls it the world’s first rooftop coaster, located above the House of Frankenstein haunted house. With installation nearly complete, it now needs approval from the province’s Technical Standards and Safety Authority, which could be a lengthy process.

    While he’s hoping to have it operating by Thanksgiving, Paul says next March is more likely.

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    It seems forever that tourists have questioned why there’s so little to do here compared with all the action on the Canadian side.

    The answer is quite simple: Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ont., offers countless attractions, running the gamut from the 175-foot-high Niagara Sky Wheel to the rebuilt Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Other crowd pleasers include “Movieland: Wax Museum of the Stars “ and the Dinosaur Adventure Golf, including a 50-foot high “active” steam-erupting volcano that lets golfers play directly through an eerie, cavernous setting on the way to the 18th hole. The Wizards Golf: Glow in the Dark Mini Putt, is a challenging course too. And, of course, we can’t ignore the fact that from the Ontario side, visitors have the better view of the natural wonder.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    After 80 days on strike, the workers at Rainforest Café on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls and the restaurant’s owners have been ordered to enter into a first contract.

    The order came from Ontario Labour Relations Board vice-chair Patrick Kelly, who issued the decision late in the afternoon Wednesday stating he knew it was a difficult process.

    The workers, represented by Workers United Local 2347, walked off the job April 7 after they had been unable to reach a collective agreement with management a year after workers voted to unionize.

    From NewYorkUpstate.com:

    There is no question that a visit to Niagara Falls can be an expensive one. Especially if you have a large family and especially if you want to visit the Canadian side with its honky-tonkish arcade-filled Clifton Hill and the lure of a large casino and several pricey attractions. But Mr. Cheapskate says leave your passport home and carve out a fun and relatively inexpensive day visiting the sites, history and majesty of the American side of Niagara Falls.

    The Niagara Falls: Enjoying the Attractions and the Poker

    from The Niagara Reporter:

    Niagara Falls is a tourist hotspot — there’s no denying it — and why wouldn’t it be? The falls are absolutely staggering in their beauty, despite some of the past controversy around them. People continue to flock to them and get the most out of the experience, whether that’s a cruise tour up to the foot of the Horseshoe Falls or viewing the Falls from a helicopter.

    Even so, there’s a whole lot more to see and do in Niagara than just come for the views. That could be a walk along Clifton Hill, where you’ll find the Movieland Wax Museum and the Nightmares Fear Factory haunted house; a venture out further afield on a day trip to the beautiful wine region of Twenty Valley; or a day on the soft sands of one of Lake Eerie’s several fine beaches in Niagara’s South Coast.

    However you choose to spend your days in Niagara, be it at the Falls themselves or exploring the region’s other attractions, you can wind down and enjoy a little excitement at the same time with a visit to the Casino Niagara.
