Here is a collection of photos that I took at Ripley’s Moving Theater. As you can imagine, I didn’t take many pictures since I was watching the movie, but I took a few of the building, the lobby, and the exit. For more details, please read my 20160620 Trip to Ripley’s Moving Theater posting.

The other day I tweeted that the outside of Ripley’s was being painted. As I was looking for some logos for the Ripley’s visit postings, I came across the website for a graphic designer in Orlando who has done a few mock-ups of what it would look like. I don’t know which one they are going to use (if any), but they look good. None of them look like the colour that it is being painted.
Here is an animated gif of the concepts. Please click through to the Melody Matheny website to see static larger images.
Here is another neat map that I took a picture of a while ago. I love seeing these old maps so you can see how things have changed. The copyright on the map is from 1973, so it was from before I was born!
You see references to the Niagara Aerocar, Marineland and Game Farm, the old Movieland location, the old Falls Tower Ride, the old Fallsway Motel (became the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill), the marine aquarium, waltzing waters, the daredevil gallery (where did that used to be?), the Niagara Falls Museum (now Bird Kingdom), the Houdini Magical Hall of Fame (now Ripley’s Moving Theatre, the old Tussaud’s location, the old Oneida Tower (now showing a Casino Niagara sign), Wonderful World of Fantasy (never heard of it), the Royal Tower (was also the Minolta Tower, and now is the Tower Hotel) and more.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
While the mighty mouse may be gone, the Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights has added turtle power to its upcoming season.
The festival parted ways with Disney in 2013 after more than 20 years of partnering with them for light displays and various attractions including having Mickey and Minnie Mouse participate in the opening ceremonies.
This season, organizers have partnered with Paramount Canada for a new display featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The illuminated renditions of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael will be set up at the top of Clifton Hill.
There will also be a special screening of the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie at the Ripley’s Moving Theatre on Dec. 16, the day the summer movie will hit store shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD.
“We are always seeking new and creative ways to expand the festival and this partnership brings a new element to the attraction,” said Brian Crow, co-chairman of the festival.
The festival’s 32nd season runs from Nov. 15 to Jan. 12.
Someone is trying to sell a free child admission or a 50% adult coupon on eBay for any of the 3 Ripley’s attractions. Bidding starts at a penny, and shipping is $2.99. They talk about a $7 savings, but after the $3 auction, I guess it would only be a $4 savings. The person with the auction seems to indicate they can provide as many of these as you need. I wonder if it is legit…
Someone with a WordPress blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:
The past weekend, my family and I along with friends visited Niagara falls for a one night stay. We got a fun pass and went to Clifton Hill, where we went to the Midway, the Haunted House, a Ferris Wheel, Ripley’s moving theater, Ripley’s Believe it or not Museum, etc.
