Clifton Hill is an amusement park of sorts. It is jam packed with restaurant, video arcades, rides and haunted houses. There is a sweet smell of candy floss that floats throughout the air. There are plenty of souviner and speciality shops.
Clifton Hill Attractions in Niagara Falls
Is just one block to the Falls and the beautiful Queen Victoria Park.Whene you come her you can’t miss it there are restaurants, bar’s, night club’s, souvenir shops, mall’s, ride’s, ice-cream shop’s, Dinosaur Park etc etc ,many thing’s to spend money on that’s for sure. And very busy.
The skywheel What a view. I had went there at night time. It was simply colorful and entertaining, but the ride is just not long enough but worth it just the same..By the way It was heated. And I think one of the guys said It was air conditioned.
Clifton Hill is the most touristy street in Niagara Falls. Lining the street are all sorts of cheesy attractions, haunted houses, souvenier shops, Ripley's Believe it or Not, a Wax Museum (or 3). At night it's lit up like Times Square. There is nothing you need here but it is a place to get caught up in the excitement, or avoid like the plague. We wandered down it on the way to see the fireworks over the falls. On the way back up we stopped and played some cosmic blacklight mini golf. Good Times...
Love it, hate it, or love to hate it. Clifton Hill is as tacky as it gets. Everywhere you turn somebody is selling something - a ride, a game, junk food. It seems the museums, haunted houses, and other attratctions here spend more money on their bigger than life exteriors than on the thing they're actually selling. I indulged one night and took my niece to a "4-D" movie. It was not as good as the 3-D movie I went to at my local Imax, but it was fun to participate in the insanity. The most interesting thing to me though was people watching and it was a good time just looking around at things. IF YOU TAKE KIDS HERE KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON THEM. It is very crowded at night and there are lots of distractions for little wandering eyes. In short, spend as little time here as you can... Unless you like this sort of thing!
Day or night the sights are very beautiful stroll down Cliftonhill to the Falls a great way to spend the day or evening..There is so much to see and do all on one Street..
The Guinness World Records Museum is one of the many museums and attractions that line Clifton Hill in the ultra touristy town of Niagara Falls.
Having visited the Falls, I was looking for something to do to kill the time while waiting for my bus back to Toronto....and this museum looked as interesting as any of the others!
I paid 12.80 CAD (February 2006) for a ticket and spent about an hour inside the museum reading about the various unbelievable feats that people have undertaken in order to claim their place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The museum is not particularly large, with the exhibitions housed on two floors. However, many of the exhibitions take the form of narrative descriptions and facts and so they don't take up much space. Consequently, there is a lot of information contained within this small museum.
The various records are split into categories within the museum. For example, you can read facts, take part in interactive activities and see video footage on records in the following categories:
Entertainment: for example, the most Oscars won for a film or an actor;
Music: for example, the most number one hits or the most albums sold by an artist;
Sport: for example, the most gold medals won or goals scored by a sportsperson;
Weather extremes: for example, the hottest, coldest, wettest and driest conditions ever recorded on Earth;
Eating feats: for example, the most hotdogs or eggs or chocolate bars consumed in a given time period;
People: for example, the world's tallest, fattest, heaviest, shortest man/woman;
Animals: for example, the world's fastest, deadliest, oldest creatures.
One of the World Record holders was the CN Tower (which I had visited a couple of days earlier) - the world's tallest free-standing tower!
You can return to the museum for a second time for the discounted price of 5 CAD within 2 days of your original ticket purchase if you so wish. Just keep your receipt and present it when you return.

At first i just looked at all this madness...not quite believing it. It felt like i was in the middle of some carnival/amusement park. It is overcommercialized, totally touristy, totally tacky and kitschy.
You can just walk down the street and go through a million souvenir stores with Niagara Falls on any kind of clothing you can imagine (and some you probably couldn't). There are haunted houses, there are fortune tellers, there are rides of all kinds. I went late in the fall so it wasn't really even very crowded, i can just imagine what its like in summer when its packed. Even late in the season, it was busy. For kids it is probably much more entertaining,,,,It was fun anyway. A good place to lighten your wallet.
To my utter surprise I saw that there is a casino and fun-area by Niagara falls. It surprised me as this seems so out of place, on one hand these amazing waterfalls and on the other hand casinos, not exactly as I had imagined Niagara falls beore I visited.
The city of Niagara Falls is a popular resort area with something to delight every member of the family. I only wish I had more time to explore the various attractions here such as Ripley's... Believe It Or Not, in 1.5 months I've gone to 2 places which have Ripley's (the other being Genting in August) and I've yet to go inside any!
Clifton Hill is really the place to take the children. The attractions and rides are the closest thing to Blackpool, UK that I have ever come across yet with less style somehow. The choices are plain to see and great for the family - if you can afford it!
Clifton Hill is comprised of a lot of tourist attractions and is also very crowded. The only attraction we went to was the wheel, which was well worth it. This was the first thing we did went we went to Niagara and was well worth the price. The ferris wheel booths are all air conditioned. They take you around 3 times for about 10.00/person.
If you want to take a break from fall-related activities, Clifton Hill is the place to go. There are lots of restaurants, night clubs, giftshops, amusement centers and other - sometimes bizarre - sorts of entertainment up and down the street. Children will have a blast! For my part, I had lots of fun just walking around, listening to (bad) karaoke singers and trying on funny hats in the giftshops!
Hahaha, this one kept me laughing for a couple of minutes: "The Hamburger Monster"! How do they think of it!!!! It didn't make me hungry though, just laugh like crazy, LOL :-)
This is the 'heart' of the tourist area. It is full with shops and tourist attraction. To get here just go to the American Falls, cross the street into the town of Niagara and you get to the 'super' tourist area :-)
