The Clifton Hill Facebook page posted a point of view (POV) video yesterday of a test drive around the Niagara Speedway track. It’s looking pretty good.

Multi-level go-kart racing coming to Niagara Falls, Ontario

No Comments

From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:

Get ready for a multi-level go-karting experience in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

HOCO Entertainment and Resorts tells 7EWN that construction on the new “Niagara Speedway” is nearing completion. The spiraling track is being built on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls and is inspired by “Heavy Metal High Rise” which is a go-kart track in Branson, Missouri.

From Niagara This Week:

While it looks like a new go-kart coaster attraction at the top of Clifton Hill is nearing completion, Mother Nature has played havoc with getting site race ready.

The base of the track, including its ascending corkscrew, have been in place for weeks, but wet weather has delayed the pouring of concrete to finish the job, HOCO director of marketing Joel Noden said.

“There’s been many days where it’s rained or there’s been the threat of rain. There are a lot of slope and curves to the track, so we’ve put off pour days.”

While it was initially thought the attraction, officially named Niagara Speedway, would open this year, Noden said that probably won’t happen.

“Realistically, we’re looking at next spring for a launch date.”

It looks like the go-kart track is going to be a concrete track rather than asphalt (perhaps that is the standard way to do it… I have no idea). Yesterday they were pouring concrete at the end of the hill. There is also concrete by the building in the middle of the track.

More Niagara Speedway go-kart track railings and netting

Based on the traffic I’ve gotten for some of my Niagara Speedway posts, it seems that many people are anxious to get more details about the go-kart track. I’m sorry to say that I have no information. There are no signs up and no indication of when it will open. All I can say is that there is still work being done.

I previously posted about some railings along the track. They’ve now put posts up all around the spiral, and have also put up some sort of mesh fence along parts of the track.
