    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…

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    When planners for a competition of 2,000 cheerleaders asked Niagara Convention Civic Centre president Kerry Painter if her staff could have 20,000 orders of french fries at the ready, there’s only one answer she could give.

    “Absolutely. I sure can,” Painter said, laughing about some of the unforeseen requirements the convention centre is going to have to meet when it opens its doors a little more than a year from now.

    “I guess you burn a lot of energy cheerleading,” said Painter, originally from Windsor, but who was managing a convention centre in Slidell, La., when she was hired two years ago to head up the Niagara Falls centre.

    The cheerleading convention is booked for May 2011, making it one of the first events to be held at the $105-million facility. Convention centre sales staff have filled April and most of May with events.
