With all of the publicity this week for the Niagara Speedway, a new banner/sign has been put on the fence that says they are opening in Spring 2018.
From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:
Get ready for a multi-level go-karting experience in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
HOCO Entertainment and Resorts tells 7EWN that construction on the new “Niagara Speedway” is nearing completion. The spiraling track is being built on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls and is inspired by “Heavy Metal High Rise” which is a go-kart track in Branson, Missouri.
From Niagara This Week:
While it looks like a new go-kart coaster attraction at the top of Clifton Hill is nearing completion, Mother Nature has played havoc with getting site race ready.
The base of the track, including its ascending corkscrew, have been in place for weeks, but wet weather has delayed the pouring of concrete to finish the job, HOCO director of marketing Joel Noden said.
“There’s been many days where it’s rained or there’s been the threat of rain. There are a lot of slope and curves to the track, so we’ve put off pour days.”
While it was initially thought the attraction, officially named Niagara Speedway, would open this year, Noden said that probably won’t happen.
“Realistically, we’re looking at next spring for a launch date.”

From the Niagara Falls Review:
Some bad manners at a Niagara Falls restaurant led to a good deed that will help a local charity.
On Monday, Kelsey’s on Clifton Hill received a hand-written letter from a boy apologizing for the way he acted at the establishment.
The unknown customer did not leave a return address, but included two $10 bills.
“Dear Kelsey’s, I have made $20 doing chores around my house to pay for the bad manners I had while at your restaurant. Sorry, Colin,” read the letter.
The Clifton Hill – Niagara Falls Fun Facebook page shared a picture of the letter and the money.
“Awesome parenting from an unknown customer with no return address,” said the Facebook post.

Squeezed in between the back of Funnel Cakes and the back of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium, there is a new area with a sign that reads “Photo Studio”. There are a couple of photo booths under it where you can get your photo taken and put on a Niagara Falls related background.
