    Record feat on display for all to see

    From Niagara This Week:

    John Scozzafava knew he had something special back in August of 2014 when he harvested a rather large zucchini from his backyard garden.

    The folks at the Guinness Book of World Records thought so, too, and now Scozzafava has the documentation to prove his gardening prowess. The gargantuan vegetable measured 2.53 metres (8 feet, 3.3 inches) in length and smashed a record of 2.39 metres (seven feet, 10 inches) held by Gurdial Singh Kanwal of Brampton, Ont.

    The certificate from Guinness and various news articles about Scozzafava’s feat are now on display at the Guinness World Records Museum on Clifton Hill for everyone to see.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Fast Eddy McDonald is no one trick pony.

    The 49-year-old Hamilton man was in Niagara Falls Thursday in an attempt to break Guinness World Record for the most hop the fence yo-yo tricks in one minute.

    On his second attempt, McDonald completed 145 tricks, breaking the existing record of 144 repetitions set in July 2008 in the United Kingdom.

    “My arm feels like Jello now,” he told the crowd gathered at the entrance to the Guinness World Records Museum on Clifton Hill.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Walter Urban now has the weight of the world off his shoulders.

    Well, not quite the weight of the world, but the weight of a 14-passenger business jet at least.

    As part of CBC’s Sports Day in Canada on Saturday, the Guelph resident set a new Guinness World Record by sumo deadlifting 10,535 pounds in one minute. He accomplished the record on live TV and in front of about 50 people on Clifton Hill, mere footsteps away from the Guinness World Records Museum.

    Cooking up bugs on Clifton Hill

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Daniella Martin is an entomophagy advocate.

    To the uninitiated, that means she eats bugs.

    “Insects are fabulous food,” she said with confidence.

    (Her personal favourites are wax worms, bees, wasps and fried bamboo worms).

    The U.S. host of the web-based show Girl Meets Bug travels the globe to share her passion with others.

    According to Martin, insects are the most environmentally-friendly source of protein on the planet.

    On Friday, she set up a makeshift kitchen outside Guinness World Records Museum on Clifton Hill and invited passers-by to sample a few fried delicacies which included crickets, scorpions and tarantulas.

    The majority of brave souls who accepted her offer said the bugs “taste like chicken.”

    Another Niagara Clifton Group discount card

    Shortly after I found that beat up discount card for Niagara Clifton Group. This card is a slightly better deal. It gets you into Brick City, The Fun House, Mystery Maze, Bronto’s Adventure Playland, The Haunted House, and Guinness World Records Museum for $4.50 including tax (the other card was $4.99 plus tax).

    Discount card for Niagara Clifton Group

    The other day I found a card on the ground from Niagara Clifton Group. It was the size of a business card, and with the card, you could get access to any of their attractions for only $4.99. The attractions include Brick City, The Fun House, Mystery Maze, Bronto’s Adventure Playland, The Haunted House, and Guinness World Records Museum. The card was pretty beat up, so I figured it would be expired, but the rate is good until December 31, 2011. I wonder who gets this card and why…

    On the back of the card was a buy one get one free offer for Bird Kingdom.

    Note: You may wonder why I put the text “Do Not Copy” on the images. I’ve actually had people try to print things off the web site and then take it to an attraction and try to use the printed coupon or discount code.
