Niagara Summer of Thrills

Reading Time:  4 minutes -

Niagara Falls has never had anything like this before!
There have always been daredevils and stuntmen drawing crowds to the Niagara Falls such as Nik Wallenda, and the late Jay Cochrane, who would walk a wire between the Hilton Hotel and the Skylon Tower, but those events while bringing in the masses, never lapsed over an entire Summer like the 2nd year of the Niagara Summer of Thrills will do!
From July 2nd until September 7th, 2015, the whole family is welcome to attend these FREE shows daily (excluding Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s) throughout the Summer.

Witness a motorcycle balancing atop a thin steel cable with a trapeze aerialist beneath it. The motorcyclist completes several death-defying stunts, including free-standing on top of the motorcycle, as the aerialist performs various acrobatic stunts from the trapeze. They will then flip the bike and trapeze numerous revolutions around the cable.

**You will find plenty of parking at this lot pictured in the map below. It’s only minutes from the Niagara Summer of Thrills shows and a 5 minute walk down Clifton Hill to the beautiful Niagara Falls. It comes complete with a jolly cut for those of you that are parked closer to the Skylon Tower. Remember, Niagara Falls be super busy from Canada Day straight through to Labour Day — which means parking will be scarce. This lot is large, extending from the rear of the Clifton Hill Niagara Falls Hotel to the Skylon Tower. It’s a lot open for the public, and not just hotel guests:
