    Mirror maze attraction coming to Clifton Hill

    Note: The Review is a little slow on this one. I posted about this back at the beginning of June. Of course, they were able to get more details than I posted.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Construction has begun on a $3-million circus-themed mirror and laser-maze attraction on Clifton Hill.

    It will replace the former Brick City, which was a giant mini city of Legos.

    That attraction was demolished last fall after a fire in the attic of the Haunted House next door in August 2014 caused water and smoke damage.

    “It was a gift store that was built in 1960, and then it had a Cinema 180 movie theatre on top of it, which then became Brick City,” said Niagara Clifton Group president Charlie Burland…

    He said construction on the 2,500-square-foot Big Top Amazing Mirror and Laser Maze attraction began right after Labour Day, and the aim is to open between April and June.

    He said the Big Top Amazing Mirror and Laser Maze will cost around $3 million.

    Brick City is back?!

    You may recall that Brick City used to be on Clifton Hill (in the old Adventure Dome). It was operated by Niagara Clifton Group. However, after a fire in 2014, it was closed, and eventually the building was demolished. I hadn’t heard anything about the Brick City attraction, so I assumed that it was gone forever. However, the other day I was walking up Oneida Lane (off of Clifton Hill… the same street where Mystery Maze is) and there was a building beside the Upside Down House called Brick City. What?!

    They don’t seem to have a real web page, but they do have a page on Facebook. It looks like the re-opened in April. I’m surprised I never heard about this.

    Brick City in Spring 2010 (pictures and videos)

    A couple of weeks ago I went with my family to Brick City on Clifton Hill. I’ve been there a few times before, and I wasn’t that keen on going, but both of my sons really wanted to go. Even though I had seen almost all of it before, it was still good to go. I’m not sure how often new pieces are added, but there were several scenes that I hadn’t seen before. Also, there is so much to see, that you definitely won’t catch it all the first time you’ve been. Most importantly to me, my kids love Lego, and so they loved going and seeing everything.

    As always, you can see some of the thumbnails below. You can see the full size images in the Brick City in Spring 2010 gallery.

    Note: There are now 3,006 images in 242 galleries in the Niagara Falls Image Gallery.






    I also created a video showing the room and some of the scenes. It was filmed in HD, so be sure to look for that option when you view the video on YouTube. I’ve also embedded the video below.
