From the Niagara Falls Review:
It’s game on for Charles Martinet.
The California resident has spent the last few days cramming in as much sight-seeing adventures as he could into his first trip to Niagara because, starting Friday, his calendar will be pretty full.
“I’m enchanted with Niagara Falls,” he said Wednesday. “It is absolutely beautiful.”
Martinet, who has been the voice of Mario in Nintendo’s flagship video game franchise for the past 27 years, will be among a number of celebrity guests at the sixth annual Niagara Falls Comic Con which starts Friday.
From the Vancouver Sun:
Call it a cruise ship on land.
The Great Wolf Lodge is unlike any other resort hotel in Canada, and one that despite being just a 10-minute drive from one of the greatest natural wonders of the world often compels guest to stay on-site for their entire vacation.
“Our mission statement is creating family traditions one family at a time,” explains Great Wolf Lodge GM Keith Simmonds.
“And this place is about family traditions. You do stuff with your kids.”
That “stuff” includes a 100,000 sq. ft indoor water park featuring 13 water slides, two giant hot tubs, a huge wave pool and a 500,000-litre lazy river.
From a PRWeb press release seen on Yahoo! News:
Halloween is not for the faint of heart in Niagara Falls with ghoulish Niagara events all around the popular districts of Clifton Hill, Fallsview Boulevard and Lundy’s Lane.
Clifton Hill is the destination for family fun on Halloween with attractions such as the House of Frankenstein, Mystery Maze and the Crystal Caves. The district is also the home of Nightmares Fear Factory, the longest running haunted house in North America, built on the site of the once industrious Cataract Coffin Factory where eccentric proprietor Abraham Mortimer was killed and is said to still walk the halls seeking revenge. For over 30 years, the attraction has been scaring, thrilling and challenging guests to survive, with over 100,000 chickening out and heading for the exits.
