Walking Tour of new food outlets and attractions on Clifton Hill

1 Comment

On Saturday I walked along Victoria Avenue and then into the new Clifton Hill Courtyard to show the work that has been done. As I mention in the video, it is hard to believe there used to be a hotel there!
Anyway, if you haven’t had a chance to come down to the Falls yet, then check out the video. You can see some of the work that is going on around the Niagara Speedway go-kart track, see the Kelsey’s patio, the new Zombie Attack attraction, the new games building and more.

From the Buffalo News:

A smartphone app called “The Official Niagara Falls State Park Tour” is now available, according to Delaware North, which operates concessions in the park.

The app, available in the Apple App and Google Play stores, can be used as a tour guide while walking in the park, or a way to check out the attractions anywhere. It includes photos and stories about 17 sites in the state park, as well as an interactive map, videos and links to the gift shop.

Some of the new operations on Clifton Hill are open

On Friday many of the new operations on Clifton Hill opened for the first time. It looks like the only thing that is NOT open is the go-kart track.

Right behind Kelsey’s is the new Zombie Attack attraction. It is a motion simulator (similar to the one in the Great Canadian Midway) that also has a great interactive shooting feature. You shoot zombies. I’ve had a chance to go on it once, and it was a lot of fun. I was very impressed.

Beside Zombie Attack and right behind Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium are a couple of new food outlets. They have the look of carnival/fair food trucks. They sell pizza, hot dogs, French fries, milk shakes, pop, funnel cakes, ice cream cones, Dippin’ Dots and more. I’ve had a funnel cake, and it was delicious. I’ve also tried the pizza and it was decent.

Across from Zombie Attack, Funnel Cakes and Hot Dogs & Pizza is the new Speedway Game Zone. This is essentially an extension of the Great Canadian Midway. There are a bunch of games, a redemption counter along with some washrooms.

Here are some pictures of the new operations…

Carnival vibe enhances Hard Rock series

From the Buffalo News:

Perhaps more than any other free, outdoor concert series in Western New York, Hard Rock Rocks Old Falls Street is presented as a community event more than just a big concert with basic concessions.

Saturday night, the two blocks of Old Falls Street were filled with puppeteers, in-your-face mimes, vendors and even Hard Rock’s in-house Bulgarian breakdancing twins. There also was a crew from Niagara Arts and Cultural Center working the crowd to raffle a guitar donated by Generations Music and autographed by the headlining performers – veteran Canadian rockers Sloan. And, true to form of a tourism community, the guitar was won by a Californian.

What the streets lacked, however, was a huge crowd. The third installment of the six-week series saw a significant dip in attendance since classic rock retreads The Guess Who opened.
