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 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.
