    From Frightening to Fun, Niagara Events Have It All This Halloween

    From a PRWeb press release seen on Yahoo! News:

    Halloween is not for the faint of heart in Niagara Falls with ghoulish Niagara events all around the popular districts of Clifton Hill, Fallsview Boulevard and Lundy’s Lane.

    Clifton Hill is the destination for family fun on Halloween with attractions such as the House of Frankenstein, Mystery Maze and the Crystal Caves. The district is also the home of Nightmares Fear Factory, the longest running haunted house in North America, built on the site of the once industrious Cataract Coffin Factory where eccentric proprietor Abraham Mortimer was killed and is said to still walk the halls seeking revenge. For over 30 years, the attraction has been scaring, thrilling and challenging guests to survive, with over 100,000 chickening out and heading for the exits.

    Nightmares Fear Factory: The World’s Most Frightening Experience for Over 30 Years in Niagara Falls Canada

    From a PRWeb press release seen on Yahoo! News:

    Nightmares Fear Factory, the longest-running haunted house in North America, features all new frightening effects for Halloween 2010, but to find out what the changes are visitors will have to observe it for themselves – or will they?!

    Nightmares Fear Factory, located in the Clifton Hill Tourist District in Niagara Falls (5631 Victoria Avenue), is a 15 minute walk-through attraction distinguished by its authentic ‘theatre of the mind’ experience; it preys on each visitor’s own fears and phobias. Some make it through, but some chicken out (106,828 to date: really!).

    Canadian Niagara Hotels Inc. to Build New Hotel Complex Decision brings new jobs, development and tourists to Niagara Falls

    From a PRWeb press release:

    Today brings great news for the city of Niagara Falls and the Falls Avenue Entertainment Complex.

    The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has renewed the lease of Casino Niagara at its current location on Falls Avenue. The lease extension is for an additional 15 years, showing the Provincial Government’s confidence in the future of Niagara Falls. This commitment creates stability and certainty on which economic development and job creation can be built.

    “I am excited that we have this opportunity to bring hospitality & tourism jobs into the much needed private sector in Niagara Falls”, DiCienzo said.

    The 300 room 30 floor Hotel with a Falls view will be the first All-Suites Hotel in the Falls Avenue / Clifton Hill area.

    Perhaps the press release left something out, as it jumps from talking about the lease extension to how many rooms the new hotel will have. Other than the title of the press release, the hotel isn’t mentioned beforehand.

    Also, the press release has a short video that is a promo for the Canadian Niagara Hotels property. It’s simple, but nice.

    Ruedi Hafen, Niagara Helicopters’ President and Chief Pilot, Nominated for Aviator of the Year!

    From a PRWeb press release (via Yahoo! News):

    Ruedi Hafen, President and Chief Pilot of Niagara Helicopters has been nominated under Aviator of the Year for his daring rescue of the man who went over Niagara Falls this past March 11, 2009.

    The man who plunged over the Niagara Falls in March did not want to be saved, but Ruedi Hafen refused to give up. Following up an emergency call, Hafen – founder of tourist flight operator Niagara Helicopters – hovered his Bell 407 over the drowning man, so a police officer could attach a sling to his arm. When he resisted, Hafen used the aircraft’s downdraft to push the would-be suicide safely to shore. Swiss-born Hafen -who has taken Niagara Helicopters to $6 million revenues in 20 years with his Niagara Falls helicopter tour and specialty flight service – was praised in media coverage for his courage, quick-thinking and airmanship.

    “I am honoured to be included in this category with such incredible people as Captain Chesley Sullenberger, Iren Dornier and Jose Miguel Ceppi” said Mr. Hafen.
