    Zipping through the air in Niagara Falls

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Friday was the beginning of a new adventure at Niagara Falls.

    The new Wildplay MistRider Zipline attraction had a soft opening Friday in advance of their Wednesday grand opening.

    I headed down to Clifton Hill to have my own turn on the zipline, located near Hornblower cruises. I electronically paid $56.49 and signed my waiver on my smart phone while I waited in line. The line was long and, according to Lindsay DiCosimo, marketing manager for WildPlay Niagara Falls, they sold out early in the day.

    Some people in line were excited at the prospect of being among the first to take flight.

    “I thought that made it seem more like I wanted to do it when I found out it was just opening,” said Emily Parker, from Liverpool. She was riding the zipline with her brother, Max, while their mother Paula stayed closer to the ground.

    “I wouldn’t go on it,” said Paula, “I’m scared of heights.”

    On April 29 the Sheraton Fallsview Hotel and Conference Centre unveiled its newest attraction; Milestones Grill and Bar.

    The new restaurant, which replaced the Cut Above Steakhouse, is located on the mezzanine level of the hotel and serves “globally inspired” food according to Karen Catton, marketing manager for the hotel.

    The food can be described as “familiar with a twist” said Derek Rewbury, general manager of the restaurant.

    The restaurant overlooks the falls and features a lounge area, dining room and patio with almost all seats in the location having a view.

    “The venue really fits the area,” said Rewburry.
