After a good 4 hours at Marineland, we were pretty hungry and tired of walking so much. After seeing the huge lines for food at Marineland, we opted for food we know would be better and possibly cheaper, so we headed out for Clifton Hill, the tourist trap area of Niagara Falls, Ontario. Heath the Sally Fan wanted to ride Ghost Blasters anyway, and we decided to check out the Falls and stuff while we were there.
Welcome to Clifton Hill, much like Pigeon Forge or the Wis Dells, its a tourist trap, full of these expensive and lame haunted houses
They've got a new ferris wheel, but Nicole wasn't interested, so we skipped it
For lunch we stopped at Boston Pizza. We were so thirsty, we didn't even get beer!
Only in Canada would you find the hockey simulator
Right below Boston Pizza was Ghost Blasters. Not too bad a price at $5 CAN per person
Nice animatronics outside try to coerce you inside
Keath and Him are ready to blast some ghosts. The guns worked pretty well for a Sally ride
Lots of other touristy stuff in Clifton Hill, like Rainforest Cafe, and HOLY CRAP! Piledriver is working finally!
Its also home to Marvel Superhero City, but we weren't interested this time
So here's the American side of Niagara Falls (notice, its not called Niagra Falls, its not spelled like Viagra and the water doesn't flow up)
Off in the distance you'll see how much more spectacular the Canadian Falls are
So yeah, here we are at the Falls
A closer look at the Canadian side of the Falls
The closer we got to the falls, the wetter and the better it felt! See that Maid of the Mist down there, it was a long line, no thanks
From the top of the Horseshoe Falls. Anyone have the urge to go over in a barrel?
Either it was really crowded that day, or another ACE Group photo was being planned at the moment
Dude, I love Clifton Hill! It's so campy and cheesy. I was disappointed when I crossed into Canada last year on the other main bridge from New York, since I didn't get to visit Clifton Hill!
Looks like you guys are having a blast!
Current coaster count : 223 waterviper [1:08am]: jahan i know you 17 and all but I think your one great piece of A$$
arrowfanman [1:36am]: Good...now we have the trifecta of ass-wanting!
A small park that I've never been to, but passed by in the winter time, home to a wooden coaster, and a mile from my girlfriend's house...you bet I'm going there!
The park was really small and strangely laid out and themed. The only real theming was around the western entrance and then it basically turned into a kiddie area on one side and a carnival midway on the other side with a few traditional park things like antique cars, a log flume, and a train. Everything else though was trailer mounted, except for the wooden CCI Silver Comet. SC was a lot better than I was expecting, with some good airtime and turns. It reminded me of Great White at Moreys, but with not as good a location, but much more airtime (and little risk of getting hit with sand). Sadly, with only 1 train operation, us only going for sundown admission, and a nice sized crowd, I only managed 2 rides on Comet. Its ok though, as long as Nicole or her parents live up there, I'm sure I'll go back.
The western section leading to the carnival midway
Malaria Lake Niagra
First ride we see, the super fun slide
The main draw, Silver Comet
Great airtime in the first couple of hills. Too bad they reprofiled this turnaround
Lots of turns, just like Great White
Zamperla frisbee type ride (Mark, I've got more if you want them, $100 each!) =)
Chance Slingshot, L to the A to the M to the E
Wow, thats like 2 operatings Chaos' I've seen so far this year (and as full as the park was, there was no line for this!)
I'll pass on this Patriot, as its not a credit, not even to Jeff
The Ferris Wheel is right up next to the Interstate
Another credit, even Nicole didn't have this one, and its been there for over a year!
Too bad it didn't spin all that much, though we got a little bit of action out of it
It was highly popular too, we waited almost as long for this as we did the Tivoli at Marineland
I love the new lapbars so much more than the old ones
No Sea Ray for us, as we needed to ride Silver Comet again before the park closed. Darn 1 train operation (of course, that's all they have!)
One last photo to show to Mark of his awesome Nitro
After Martin's it was off to Buffalo, and the Anchor Bar, birthplace of the Buffalo Wing
