Canadian Niagara Hotels has secured the rights from Marvel Comics to develop the "Marvel Super Heroes Adventure City" mini-theme park at the base of the Sheraton on the Falls hotel. The $10 million project is expected to open by late May, taking about 29,000 square feet at the hotel's corner of Clifton Hill and Falls Avenue.

When I was there last year in the summer-time, I saw Spiderman out there on more than one occassion, and in the exact spot where this attraction is going up. In fact, there was some sort of Universal Studios thing going on there last year, but I didn't investigate close enough to really find out what it was. All I know is that you could get vacation pacakges to Islands of Adventure, but that's about it. I know there was more to it.
Lined up along the little plaza on the glass, they had pictures of Spiderman, The Incredible Hulk, Cat in the Hat, & Jurassic Park... what the latter 2 have to do with Marvel Comics, I don't know...
...but I'm glad that they're getting even more attractions here. It's only a matter of time before they actually get a rollercoaster in that area. Already, you can spend over $200 in Canadian there, and still not see or do everything on that street!! :)
The only difference between stupidity and genius is genius has limitations.
Rumours is still there by the way...

Never look a gift horse in the mouth, because horses have very bad breath
Does anyone know if either of these attractions have official websites?
And that's no lie!
I wonder if that's some sort of world record or something
I liked it alot.. can't wait to see what happens next there.. I remember Clifton Hill as a kid and it's been really neat to watch it change and grow over the last 30+ years.

The area is gonna rock!

Especially in a season where there is a lot of snow or a lot of cold, it forms the most magnificant ice bridge around at the base of the falls. All the ice from Lake Erie that forms as well as on the river just creates a bridge larger & thicker each day and it makes for a beautiful view (just don't try crossing it... that's reserved for retards & Pakistani's). Not to mention when fresh snow falls, the park really shines.
But overall, businesses are quiet & it's only good in the nature parks by the 'Falls... areas like Clifton Hill are still open, like the night clubs & restaurants, but it's still very eerily quiet.

Any rides you put into that kind of theming will automatically receive *RAVE* reviews, mark my words. A better design team couldn't be found anywhere, what I wouldn't do to work for THEM...you just don't wanna know....;)
