From the Niagara Falls Review:
When Mayor Jim Diodati got to the top of the Red Bull Crashed Ice course, he got that churning feeling in his stomach and could only think of one thing: “Imagine going down a roller coaster in skates!”
Lucky for Diodati, he was only taking a tour of the 460-metre-long course, which starts at the Skylon Tower, along Murray St. and into the Niagara Pkwy. near the Edgewaters Tap & Grill.
Organizers of the event — a combination of downhill skiing, hockey and boardercross — took media and local dignitaries for a Wednesday walkthrough of the twisting ice course, which is still under construction.
