Snowbirds: Niagara Falls Attractions

Niagara Falls Attractions are Heating up: Snowbirds Over The Falls!

Snowbirds Over The Falls

In just a couple of weeks, once the hustle and bustle of the Victoria Day and Memorial Day weekends wind down, some other Niagara Falls attractions will be gearing up for their chance to take part in something remarkable. On Wednesday, May 29th at 6:00 pm, the ultimate event is set to occur over the most amazing of Niagara Falls attractions there is: Snowbirds Over The Falls! The one and only Canadian Forces Snowbirds will take flight and soar above the majestic Wonder of the World performing their legendary air show demonstration with the ease and pristine precision that they are known for. They will use the Niagara Falls as the setting for a 25 minute, 9 plane, formation display in the sky; synchronizing within inches of one another, all while being enhanced by live commentary from the Snowbirds themselves. Spectators can watch this great Niagara Falls attraction from lining up along the Falls, however live commentary will only be broadcasted through the Table Rock Centre.

About the Canadian Forces Snowbirds

The Snowbirds Demonstration Team is a Canadian icon comprised of serving members of the Canadian Forces. Working closely as a team, their pilots and technicians thrill performances to the North American public, and will be sure to serve as one of the greatest Niagara Falls attractions to set the stage using this beautiful backdrop. Serving as Canadian ambassadors, the Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of professionalism, teamwork, excellence, discipline and dedication inherent in the women and men of the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Canadian Forces.

Six months of intensive training go into acquiring the skills necessary to perform in very difficult positions and formations. The Snowbirds spent the Winter months at their home base in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan practising their abilities.

Other Niagara Falls Attractions to view this spectacular event

If lining up along the Niagara Parkway is too busy for you, or you are perhaps looking for a truly unique way to experience this event, you may be able to time it right aboard the Niagara Skywheel. Keep in mind that chances are that many spectators will have this same idea so get there early to avoid any lineups…but this would truly be a once in a lifetime view as you too would be soaring 175 feet above ground level in this massive ferris wheel, at an inexpensive fee of $10.99 for adults and $6.99 for children! If you are willing to travel 600 feet higher and are willing to pay a little bit more money, then why not try the Skylon Tower?

After the event, there is still plenty of Niagara Falls Attractions to discover, and the Clifton Hill Fun Pass is your best bet to savings! It includes 5 great Clifton Hill attractions for half the cost which not only includes the Niagara Skywheel, but also the perfect outdoor activity, Dinosaur Adventure Golf or for the lovers of the indoors and rainy days, Galaxy Golf. You also get Movieland Wax Museum, Ghostblasters Dark Ride and the XD Ride Theatre, plus 5 game tokens to play inside the Great Canadian Midway. If you are coming from out of town, all these attractions plus the “Snowbirds Over The Falls” event are just steps away from the Clifton Hill Niagara Falls Hotel .  Since this Niagara Falls event falls during the mid-week, the rooms are inexpensive, and yet you still get the quality, convenience and comfort that you deserve. You can also add the Clifton Hill Fun Pass on to your reservation as an added convenience so that waiting in lineups isn’t required. There are many other packages featured with this Niagara Falls hotel, such as 20% off the Niagara Parks Adventure Pass, and a long lineup of others featured in the Build-A-Package campaign.
