    1 Comment

    From the St Catharines Standard:

    Four zip line attractions could be up and running next year in Niagara Falls if a proposal by the Niagara Parks Commission gets the green light.

    The agency held a public information session Thursday at the School of Horticulture to unveil plans for what it hopes will be the newest Niagara Falls attraction.

    The proposed zip line sites include a line that runs parallel to the Whirlpool Aero Car above the whirlpool and a second one that would run from the Maid of the Mist boat plaza to the power station near the base of the Falls.

    A third line will operate from Rapidsview parking lot and a fourth will be at Thompson Point.

    From the Toronto Star:

    The crowd before her roars as Buttercup waddles onto the stage on this late Wednesday afternoon at Marineland’s King Waldorf’s Stadium. The centre of attention, the 900-kilogram walrus twists around and wags her flippers at her trainer’s call, sending people in the nearly packed bleachers clapping and cheering even louder for more.

    Despite a protest that saw some 400 people gather outside its gates just days before, business at the embattled Niagara Falls tourist spot was booming, as sunscreen-covered children and their parents flocked toward amusement rides and marine attractions.

    From a PR Web press release:

    One of the cornerstones of the Niagara-in-winter experience – the TD RINK at the Brink – opens to the public for its third season on Thursday, December 1.

    The TD RINK – Niagara’s answer to the iconic outdoor ice skating rinks at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto and Rockefeller Centre in New York City – is located just a snowball’s throw from the brink of the world-famous Horseshoe Falls.

    The signature Niagara Falls attraction of the CAA Winter Festival of Lights, the TD RINK offers public skating, skate and locker rentals and free helmets for those who need them, as well as a skate sharpening service and group rates for holiday outings, parties, school trips and corporate team-building exercises. RINK adds yet another unique and fun family experience to the CAA Winter Festival of Lights, which is already one of the most iconic festivals in Ontario.

    TD, the title sponsor of the TD RINK, has generously agreed to provide six ‘TD Free Skate Days’. ‘TD Free Skate Days’ allow members of the public to experience the TD RINK at the Brink complements of TD. Additionally, the TD Comfort Crew will be in attendance at each ‘TD Free Skate Day’ providing complementary hot chocolate and a souvenir photo.

    From Niagara This Week:

    Admission to a Niagara Falls attraction on Clifton Hill for just five bucks? Believe it — or not!

    There’s a catch, however, but that OK. It’s all for a good cause.

    Ripley’s Believe it of Not! Odditorium on Clifton Hill is staging what the museum calls its Gimmie Five Food Drive to fight hunger. For a donation of five nonperishable food items, admission to the Odditorium will be reduced to $5 from the standard $13.99 entry fee. All the food collected will go to Project SHARE and be distributed to families throughout the Niagara Region.
    The special admission runs from Nov. 6 to 10.

    “We’re in the business of ‘unbelievable’, and the number of families needing help putting food on the table is truly unbelievable,” said Jim Pattison Jr., President of Ripley Entertainment Inc. “That’s why we started this national effort to help food banks across the country.”
