Have A Wild Time At Rainforest Café
It’s a jungle in here! Literally. The Rainforest Café comes alive with animatronic gorillas, elephants, snakes and an 80-foot bubbling volcano. Experience moody thunderstorms every half hour and spot shooting stars as you gaze at their magical starscape. This café has it all with a menu full of family favourites for your pack.
Discover the Bright Lights Before Bedtime
The Winter Festival of Lights brings 101 nights of twinkling lights to Niagara Falls! Bundle up and head out on a walk along the Niagara Parkway and tourism districts to view the millions of lights and larger than life displays. The nightly Falls Illunination will add to the magic with the majestic Falls lit up in a rainbow of colours against the icy facade.
Have an Out-of-this-World Breakfast
Located in a galaxy far away (but not too far) is the Flying Saucer Restaurant on Lundy’s Lane. Hop on board for a menu full of delights sure to please earthling and alien kiddies alike. (A local favourite!)
Experience A Whole New World
Journey Behind the Falls provides a window to a new side of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and experiencing it in the winter is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Wander behind the waterfall for an unprecedented view of the great marvel and make sure to grab your camera to capture your families’ stunned expressions as they view the icy cool splashes of the Falls.
Get up close and personal with exotic feathered friends, reptiles, and other animals at the Bird Kingdom, the world’s largest free-flying indoor aviary. Meander through the multi-level rainforest, explore ancient ruins, and make friends with friendly critters at the Animal Encounters.
Grab A Slice of The Mighty ‘Za
Head to Boston Pizza on Clifton Hill for a slice of the good stuff (or pasta, salads, ribs and dessert). After lunch, the kids can burn some energy at Strike Rock N’ Bowl, conveniently located within the restaurant, plus an action-packed arcade on two levels!
Bird’s Eye View
See the Falls and the region from way up high with a ride in the heated gondolas of the Niagara Skywheel, located at the top of Clifton Hill. The kids will love the incredible views and you won’t have to worry about frostbite. Check out the Clifton Hill Pass for hours of family fun!
Trek the Maple Trail
Experience true Canadiana by trekking The Maple Trail at Maple Leaf Place. In this immersive experience, walk through Canada’s only indoor Sugar Bush experience and learn about how our country’s signature staple, maple syrup, is made and bottled. Savour maple syrup samples and sweet treats such as maple taffy rolled in snow, artisan chocolates, and homemade fudge. Yum!
Don’t miss the fun photo ops with their colossally sized Canadian icons, including a 15-foot-tall Inukshuk, Canadian Mounties, teepee, spoons, thimbles, and a moose!
End The Day With A Splash
Make some time to get wet and wild. Head to the indoor waterpark, where the temperature is a balmy 84°F.
After an action-packed day, why not settle in for some easy casual fare poolside? Once the kids have conquered every waterslide, you know they’ll get a good nights’ sleep.
Chill By The Pool
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and take some extra time to enjoy a swim or slide at the waterpark.
Let your kids explore over 2,000 square feet of magnificent miniature railways and landscapes at Locomoland. Here they will have the chance to be the train conductor on one of the worlds most elaborate miniture railway systems!
