    Operators need to show innovation

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Weddings aboard a tour boat in the mist of Niagara Falls could become a new tradition depending on what “innovative” ideas companies propose in their bids to operate tours from the Canadian side of the Niagara River.

    “You can provide anything that you think will work,” said Bill Mocsan, a consultant hired by the Ministry of Tourism to help the Niagara Parks Commission pick a company to provide tours — a process that could end the commission’s historic tie with the Maid of the Mist Steamboat Co.

    Mocsan, the government-appointed procurement specialist will draft the request for proposals for companies interested in winning the lease to run boat tours from a piece of parks commission property.

    Other possibilities could include hour-long cruises with hot meals. A snack bar on board. And night tours.

    The “preview” put up yesterday also has some videos…

    A non-visit to the Niagara Daredevil Exhibit at the IMAX Theatre


    I stopped in at the IMAX Theatre on Saturday to look at the renovated daredevil museum. I don’t know if all of the details were in the article I linked to before… if they were, I missed them.

    The museum has moved to another part of the building and is now called the Niagara Daredevil Exhibit. It used to be at the exit of the main theatre behind the gift shop. Admission was free. Now it’s beside the snack bar and has paid admission.

    The Niagara Daredevil Exhibit costs $8.00 to get in. The movie costs $12.50, but you can get both for $15.00. Kids under 4 are free.

    I wasn’t willing to pay for something that was free before, so I didn’t go in. If any of you do end up going, take some pictures and send them along so I can post about it.
