“Pure tack!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

we stayed at a hotel about 15 min walk away from clifton hill (thank god we didn't stay closer)! we thought it was the tackiest place ever such a shame. it was full of daft arcades, haunted houses etc looked like backpool (england).the falls are amazing though don't let the tack put you off just stay away from clifton hill.

“Review: Fun Factory - Wax Hand Emporium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We visited Niagara Falls for our honeymoon and we stumbled onto the Wax Hand Emporium in the Fun Factory. We decided this was the perfect keepsake from our honeymoon. We did a wax sculpture of our hands joined and had a ring embedded onto my wife's finger. This is by far our favourite souvenir from Niagara Falls. However, be prepared to wait, we lucked out, but some people behind us waited over an hour to get the molding done, and it takes two hours to dry.

HELPFUL TIP: Pay extra to get the clear glaze finish and to get the sculpture filled. It costs a bit more but the result is a very shiny and solid keepsake that will last a lifetime.

“The Carnival”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

This place could be said to be pretty cheesey but it works. All kinds of novelties like wax museums, Ripley's, horror shows etc. But there is also some nice shops. See it to betieve it.

“Tacky”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Niagara Falls would be so much better without Clifton Hill. If you like arcades and tacky shows then you should visit. If you are here to visit the falls then stay away
