    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It’s just been open six days, but the new zipline attraction in Niagara Falls has become quite an international hit.

    Attraction operators and the Niagara Parks Commission have been flooded with interview requests from media across the world since last Friday, when riders were first able to descend 670 metres on four high-speed, side-by-side wires from the Niagara Parks Commission’s Grand View Marketplace into the Niagara Gorge below.

    Prior to Wednesday afternoon’s official opening, where dignitaries attended a press conference, cut a ribbon and some even zipped down, Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the commission, told the Niagara Falls Review the attraction has already received “spectacular international coverage.”

    In addition to coverage from the Review, including a video shot about two weeks ago that garnered more than three-million views, the zipline has received much love on social media.

    Commission spokesman Tony Baldinelli said articles have appeared in international travel magazines, print and digital media from around the world, as well as extensive television coverage.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The Niagara Parks Commission would like people to do more than just drive past the Festival of Lights exhibits. In an effort to expand their list of winter activities and try to get tourists to spend time outside of their cars, the commission has installed a carnival-type vintage carousel to anchor what it’s calling Victorian Candy Land.

    “It allows people to not only stay in their cars, but get out and experience more of the parks up close. It’s about turning the park into a four-seasons destination,” said NPC director of communications Tony Baldinelli.
