Known as Niagara Falls' Fun Street, this stretch of road running from Victoria Avenue to River Road is home to many of the city's amusement parks, houses of horror, and fun-style museums. Located a block from Casino Niagara and walking distance to the Falls , the strip, along with a stretch of Victoria Avenue, features such attractions as the Alien Encounter , Guinness World Of Records Museum , and Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Museum .
Intense overcrowding, sky high prices for very little in return, unreasonable lines even if you did want to pony up close to a fifty bucks for 3 people to participate in one of the "attractions". Seven dollars for a hot dog? 17.50 per person to look at wax figures and the like or wrestlers? Yikes.
Niagara Falls is a wonderful destination to visit, but do yourself two favors: 1- come during the off season, and 2- walk the extra block past Clifton Hill and enjoy the Falls in a less sardine packed environment.
This ridiculis place is a once in a lifetime experience. Try the SkyWheel, Great Canadian Midway, Ripley's Museum, and the Casino. Spring time is the best, not too hot/not too cold, no lineups to the many attractions, never wait at restaurants, super nice people working at the venues, great service, many amusements to pick from, the brink of Niagara Falls is a short walk.
Clifton Hill had so many things to do no matter what part of the year you decide to visit. They have the Ripleys museum and the Ripleys moving movie theater, the Worlds records museum, the Movie star wax museum, the have an arcade and game for the kids,and let me not forget the stores and all the resturants. You could spend a whole day just in this one place because there's just so much to do. We often stay at one of the hotels on Clifton Hill because everythings right there.
Lots to do and see, more attractions than you can imagine, Like an oversized amusement park. Everything is very expensive, so be prepared. Most places take either US or Canadian money, with lots of currency exchanges located in the area.
amazing and perfect. people are amazingly nice and HOT boys! even the managers of the night clubs are awesome.you must go to mardi gras and rumors. although you need to dress to really impress for certain ones.this is a defenate must see.
Clifton Hill is the "tourist trap" of Niagara Falls. If you've seen one strip (whether Myrtle Beach, Gatlinburg, Virginia Beach), you've seen them all. Lots of places to waste your money -- "rides," "museums," and "haunted houses." Big prices, little value.
There definitely is a lot to do on Clifton Hill and every inch of free space is consumed by a shop/restaurant/attraction. The problem comes in for the frugal traveler. There were 3 people in our group, and several of the attractions take an hour or less to go through, and each costs admission. There are some packages available, which helps, but we blew through a few hundred dollars in 2 days and we only did SOME of the attractions! For example, Lego World was cool, but it was $7/pp and it was just 1 giant room of Legos that took maybe 1/2 hour to absorb - so that was $21 gone. Then there was our meal at Ruby Tuesday's, which was $47 for a super sampler & two salads. We also went through about $40 in the Midway arcade, and that lasted maybe an hour. We skipped Guinness & Ripley's because they too were about $10/pp. So, come to have fun and people watch, but be prepared to spend a lot of $$, especially if you have kids that want to ride and see everything and play in the arcades.
we stayed at the comfort inn which was excellent in my book.Yes it can to some get alittle pricey but, to have a good time don't waste your money on the haunted houses and those things. We walked around to all the little shops looked at the merchandise and priced everything befor we bought our souveniers.Don't eat at Boston Pizza that was the most expensive pizza ever and we were'nt impressed!
There were 4 of us me, my husband, my sister and her husband an the bill came to $70.00 we got a large pizza with 1 topping and appetizers
2 beers a pop and a water.
We ate at a resturaunt called Big Anthonys and it was well worth the money $61.00 for the 4 of us and we even had steak dinners and drinks, the food was excellent for the money.Burger King alittle pricey for a whopper value meal 6.95 (i don't think so)
We went to the mid way of games that was a blast we were ther so, long that they were closed and never once did they say we are closed you have to leave finally we left at 2:30 in the morning.Overall it was a great time @ clifton hill.
We are going back next year but have decided to probly stay at the Sheraton with a view of the falls and its closer to the casino.
Clifton Hill can be a lot of fun, but if your going to go to the wax museums clip coupons and look for deals. The wax museums are on average over priced for what you get and that's with coupons. Ripley's Believe it or Not and Tusads' Wax works are owned by the same company and they will give you a package deal if your going to most or all of their locations on the Hill. Ask the person at the counter.
Do Not exchage money on the hill! You'll get a better rate at the casino or better yet at the duty free shop. My wife and I were offered less than half the normal exchange rate at one palce and about 2/3 at most places. Oh save your receipts for your hotel and item purchases (not including meals and entertainment) You can go to the duty free shop and get a tax rebate provided that you spent more that $200 and each receipt is at least $50.00 before taxes. Remember no meals or entertainment receipt though. The staff in the refund section of the office I visited makes our own IRS look like Mary Popins (some folks should drink decafe only), but If you spent $200 it's $14 bucks back to you. But I digress.
The hill can be a fun family oriented place during the day, but when the sun goes down the clubs open up and the kids in the 19 to 24 age group start coming out the place can get a little wooly. With the drinking age being 19 kids get loaded and head for the Hill. The cops are normally out in force though, but it can be unnerving for family type people and thier kids. My wife and I found it best to see the "Tourist Traps" during the morning (We really enjoyed Ripley's, Tusauds, and The Crimanal Hall of Fame) and the take a tour with one of the many tour company's in the late morning early afternoon and see what the surrounding area has to offer. However if your are late teens early 20's or you just like a party or "hook up" type atmosphere then you may just want to go over there after 9:30 P.M.
