A beautiful day in Niagara Falls (last Saturday)

No Comments

We’ve had quite a bit of rain this week, but as the week has gone on, it has been quite nice. The weekend looks like it is going to be nice as well. I had intended to post this earlier in the week, but didn’t get around to it. Last Saturday was a beautiful day. The sky was clear and the sun was shining. In some ways the photos I took don’t even do it justice.

Enjoy!

Niagara Falls at night

No Comments

Over the last week I’ve had a couple of opportunities to be in Niagara Falls later in the evening. The lights on Clifton Hill, and that shine on the Falls are truly awesome. I took a few pictures, and you can see them below. You can see the Niagara SkyWheel, the volcano at Dinosaur Adventure Golf, the Fallsview Casino Resort tower, the lights on the falls, and the new Canada 150 sign at Table Rock Welcome Centre.

Skywheel re-opens on Clifton Hill

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Canada’s largest observation wheel is back in business.

The 53-metre-tall Niagara Skywheel re-opened to the public on Thursday after being closed since mid-March due to maintenance work. The court yard kiosk has also been redesigned.

Plans are now underway to install independent LED lighting systems in the hub domes of the Ferris Wheel which opened on Clifton Hill in 2006.

Niagara SkyWheel almost ready to go again.

UPDATE: I wrote this post yesterday (Thursday) and scheduled it to go up this morning. It turns out that the SkyWheel actually opened yesterday at dinner time.

The Niagara SkyWheel took a couple of weeks to come down, and was down for about 6 weeks. I was wondering if it would get open for this coming Victoria Day weekend. It appears the answer is Yes!
It has gone up rather quickly, and seems like it is almost ready.

These pictures were taken over the last week, but it now appears to be entirely ready.

As a side note, I’m not really afraid of heights, but I’m not sure I’d want that job standing in the middle of the wheel working on it!

Niagara SkyWheel is being re-assembled

I’m sure you all know that the Niagara SkyWheel has been out of service for about two months. Well, it is finally being put back together. The centre piece (hub/axel) is in place and they have the spokes and rim laid out ready to go.

SkyWheel closed for maintenance (including photos)

I know this is kind of old news, but I still wanted to post about it, along with some photos:

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The Niagara SkyWheel on Clifton Hill will be closed until May 1 for maintenance.
