“Mini Las Vegas.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

My husband and I stayed in Niagara Falls, Ontario for our honeymoon and we spent an afternoon here. As with everywhere in this area, everything was quite expensive compared to the States. However, the strip was entertaining (and super touristy) in that it had much to offer--shops, food and attractions. We found parking right on the strip next to the dinosaur miniature golf for $10 all day. One could easily spend all day here if money wasn't a problem. There is laser tag, a Rain Forest Cafe, a big arcade and so much more. We stopped in at Beaver Tails and got a yummy maple covered pastry there and we also explored many of the shops. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

“Clifton Hill Fun Pass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The Fun Pass is an excellent deal for families or couples of any age because it gives you access to 5 attractions including SkyWheel, Movieland Wax Museum, Ghost Blasters Dark Ride, XD Theatre and Dinosaur Adventure Golf or Galaxy Golf. My husband and I went to the SkyWheel, Movieland Wax Museum and Dinosaur Adventure Golf. The pass is 25.00 per adult and you save 25.00 over the cost of each attraction individually. The pass is good for one year so when we got home we gave it to our daughter who will use it with her boyfriend on their next trip to Niagara Falls because she loves the 2 attractions that we didn't use the pass for.

“A lot to offer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

This strip of fun is very good. you find many good attractions. I would recommend you check individual attractions reviews before going into all of them because your dollars can go away very quickly, and some of the attractions suck...

“Great place for families”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

This place is kind of neat, but mainly geared toward kids. There is the massive Great Canadian Midway which was fun to play a few games in. There are also a couple fun/haunted houses, several chain restaurants like Boston Pizza, Wendy's, Burger King, Tim Horton's, Hard Rock Cafe to name a few. The Skywheel is also located here, with mini-golf next to it. The street is lit up in neon at night and looks very cool.

“One word of advice: choose wisely”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

There is plenty to do on Clifton Hill, but it can add up and be quite costly. Pick a few attractions that interest you most and see if there are package prices for them. Also, there are booklets with coupons that you can pick up at random locations. Look out for them and you can end up saving a buck here and there.

Nightmares Fear Factory, at the top of the hill on Victoria St, is by far the best haunted house. Don't bother with the other ones.

Ripley's Believe It or Not is one of the better museums on Clifton Hill. Though parts of it may need updating, it is still quite an interesting experience. Definitely pick this over the Guiness World Records Museum. That one needs desperate updating.

If you've never been to a wax museum, then it is worth visiting one of them on Clifton Hill. Louis Tussaud's has a bit of everything.

Inside the Great Canadian Midway is a ride called Ghost Blasters. The goal is to shoot targets and get as many points as you can. It's a fun ride for all ages.

The street is filled with places to eat, but most of the fast food restaurants are over-priced. If you just want a quick bite, Tim Hortons is a good place to stop at. Their prices are the same as the other locations outside of Niagara Falls.
