Father’s Day is on June 16th, and Niagara Falls has you covered. Father’s Day is a celebration honouring fathers, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. We have you covered with plenty of things to do for Dad on this weekend.
Location: 4960 Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls, Canada
It sends racers over 42 feet high and the course is 2000 feet of concrete racing surface, running through a four-story helical spiral followed by a two tiered coaster style ramp that runs into another spiral. The Niagara Speedway is North America’s largest elevated go-cart track facility, and it’s one that Dad will be aching to try! Open late throughout the weekend, so there’s plenty of time to try out Niagara Falls most talked about addition.
