From the Chatham Daily News:
Niagara Falls is not only the honeymoon capital of the world but also a very popular fun capital for young and old alike.
And contributing in a large way to the fun events is HOCO Fun By the Falls, a company that owns and operates a number of rides and venues in Clifton Hill. Among them is the hugely popular Niagara SkyWheel, Zombie Attack, Wild West Coaster, Movieland Wax Museum, Ghost Blasters Dark Ride, Dinosaur Adventure Golf and Wizard’s Golf as well as a go-cart track.
I was able to get on the Niagara Speedway the other day for the first time. It’s pretty fun. I’m going again on Monday with the rest of my family, and I’ll report more then.
The Clifton Hill Facebook page posted a point of view (POV) video yesterday of a test drive around the Niagara Speedway track. It’s looking pretty good.
There are signs all around the Niagara Speedway location now. They look very nice.
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.
It looks like the go-kart track is going to be a concrete track rather than asphalt (perhaps that is the standard way to do it… I have no idea). Yesterday they were pouring concrete at the end of the hill. There is also concrete by the building in the middle of the track.
It looks like the red railings are all in place, and there are now light poles around the track. There is also a covered area at the top of the stairs attached to the spiral.
Work continues, slowly, on the Niagara Speedway go-kart track. The work seems to be focused on the multi-level spiral.
Still no word on when it will open…
Based on the traffic I’ve gotten for some of my Niagara Speedway posts, it seems that many people are anxious to get more details about the go-kart track. I’m sorry to say that I have no information. There are no signs up and no indication of when it will open. All I can say is that there is still work being done.
I previously posted about some railings along the track. They’ve now put posts up all around the spiral, and have also put up some sort of mesh fence along parts of the track.
