    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.

    Jamie Kennedy cooking up something different

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    As iconic Canadian chef Jamie Kennedy speaks, a gigantic ferris wheel rotates outside the window behind him.

    Down the street is a bonanza of pretzels and candy apples.

    Keep walking, and there’s a huge Frankenstein bursting through the roof of Burger King munching on a Whopper.

    Is this really the place for fine cuisine? As far as Kennedy is concerned, it’s overdue.

    “The key thing is to connect Niagara Falls to the region, gastronomically,” says Kennedy, in town Monday to announce a new restaurant in the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel.

    The renowned chef, awarded the Order of Canada last year, will open Jamie Kennedy on the Falls on the hotel’s 14th floor in late November. There will be some surprises, he hints, but anyone who has been to either of his two Toronto restaurants will know what to expect: Local cuisine paired with local wines, served in unconventional ways.

    All quiet on the Hill

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The theme-park kitsch of tourist mecca Clifton Hill seems tailor-made for late singing and dancing great Michael Jackson.

    It’s easy to picture the 50-year-old svelte superstar – who did, after all, live in a virtual amusement park called Neverland – slithering down the incline of the money-sucking street in a moonwalk.

    He’d likely soak in the oversized Frankenstein and relish the Thriller-like screams from one of many haunted housethemed attractions on the strip.

    But as millions around the world watched the internationally loved King of Pop’s star-studded memorial service live from Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon, this busy global tourist hub seemed largely indifferent.
