    Rooftop roller coaster latest addition to Clifton Hill

    No Comments

    From Niagara This Week:

    Clifton Hill has long been described as ‘carnival-like.’ Cotton candy. Ferris wheel. Go-karts. Pretty soon, you can add roller coaster.

    Owner Ian Paul calls it the world’s first rooftop coaster, located above the House of Frankenstein haunted house. With installation nearly complete, it now needs approval from the province’s Technical Standards and Safety Authority, which could be a lengthy process.

    While he’s hoping to have it operating by Thanksgiving, Paul says next March is more likely.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    After several delays, the Whirlpool Adventure Course will not open this year, and company officials are now pinning their hopes on next spring.

    “There’s two outstanding variance issues with the (Technical Standards Safety Authority) that we are continuing to move forward with, pursuing the variances,” said Lindsay DiCosimo, marketing and communications manager for WildPlay.

    “We are asking to have the exact same variances provided to the Whirlpool Adventure Course that they have granted to multiple parks in the past, including ones in Ontario, and ones out in British Columbia.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Wildplay is still awaiting TSSA approval before it opens its Whirlpool Adventure Course on Niagara Parks Commission property at Thompson Point.

    There was original optimism the attraction might be up and running near the end of July, just after Wildplay’s MistRider Zipline to the Falls opened for business to the public at the base of Clifton Hill.

    The opening was then pushed back until late August, and again into September.

    The wait continues.
