Skywheel re-opens on Clifton Hill

No Comments

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!

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.

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:

Pokémon Go in Niagara Falls

1 Comment

First off, let me say that I have no desire to get into this game at all… I just installed the app so I could see what creatures were around Niagara Falls. I really don’t understand the interest people have in this, but I guess we’re all different 🙂

Well, I installed Pokémon Go on my Samsung Galaxy S7 and right away there was a creature nearby. Apparently I found Charmander. This was near the Niagara SkyWheel and Dinosaur Adventure Golf.

Buying partially used Clifton Hill Fun Pass

No Comments

If you live close to Clarington, Ontario and you will be making your way to Niagara Falls, it may be worth your while to buy some partially used Clifton Hill Fun Passes. Even though the SkyWheel has been used, the remaining items still make it a great deal.
