    This goes along with my posting from last week

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The former Niagara Falls Memorial Arena could be demolished and replaced with a museum dedicated to — and modeled after — the Titanic.

    The city’s committee of adjustment approved an application from businessman David van Velzen this week for minor variances to a bylaw that would allow for a new facility to be built in the shape of the historic British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912 after colliding with an iceberg.

    The Centre Street building, which most recently housed a sand sculpture attraction, was put up for sale in November 2014.

    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.”
