The Niagara SkyWheel is Canada’s largest observation wheel that provides amazing views of the Horseshoe and American Falls. It goes without saying that it takes the top spot in Clifton Hill’s most popular place to take a selfie. Whether it be on the ride, or just beside the 175-foot wonder, a selfie here is a must!
Oakes Garden Theatre
The Oakes Garden Theatre is located at the bottom of Clifton Hill where it intersects with the Niagara Parkway. The gardens are meticulously maintained throughout the year providing astonishing beauty, and the backdrop of the falls can’t be beat! Not only is it highly photographed by selfie-takers, but one of the top gardens to take wedding photos as well.
Giant Ice Cream Cone
One of our most popular Summer treats is our freshly made waffle cones, served with the ice cream to suit your cravings — and it’s easy to spot with the giant ice cream cone hung on the building. It turns into selfie central as people line-up for their refreshing treats.
Zombie Attack and the resident “Zombie Guy”
One of Clifton Hill’s newest attraction, Zombie Attack, is causing quite the uproar! It’s hard to miss the zombies hanging from the roof, and with the popularity of zombie tv shows, movies, and video games, every Clifton Hill goer (including animals!) wants to share the spotlight with the resident “Zombie Guy” just hanging out on the bench.
Walk past Movieland Wax Museum (located towards the bottom of Clifton Hill on the south side), and you will be met with the grimacing face of Heath Ledger’s “The Joker”. Taking a photo beside him is almost a staple and an expectation here.
Dinosaur Adventure Golf
Heads up for the erupting volcano on Clifton Hill! That’s the home of Canada’s famous 36-hole outdoor Dinosaur Adventure Golf course. It’s also the home of over 50 astonishingly realistic and life-size dinosaurs — making these differing species of our oldest reptilian friends a popular source of selfie users!
The Niagara Speedway is a “must-do” on your travels to Clifton Hill. Taking a selfie beside North America’s largest elevated go-cart track facility (and the first of its kind in Canada!), is a given. It’s traditional go-karts with an elevated coaster styled track.
Clifton Hill during the “Winter Festival of Lights”
You haven’t seen spectacular until you’ve seen Clifton Hill during the Winter Festival of Lights. This year it will run almost double its traditional length — from November 13th, 2021 until February 21st, 2022! It is FREE and open to everyone. Over 3 million dazzling lights sparkle along 8 km of the Niagara Parkway and within Queen Victoria Park, Dufferin Islands, and various tourist areas throughout Niagara Falls including: Clifton Hill, the Victoria Centre, Fallsview Boulevard, and Lundy’s Lane.
The Friendly Dragon
Our family-friendly 18th hole dragon is hard to miss when walking past Wizards Golf (Glow-in-the-Dark Mini Putt). He moves about and spews smokey breath while you try not to miss your putt into that final hole. Don’t let him distract you, but definitely take the opportunity to pose next to our magical and mystical friend!
Clifton Hill Streetscape at Night
Whether you’re a honeymooner or on a family vacation, to see Clifton Hill’s dazzling nightlife is something you will never forget! All the lights and excitement packed together along the “Street of Fun by the Falls”, is the perfect vantage point for a one-of-a-kind selfie opportunity to commemorate your trip here.
