With an array of exciting attractions that are the epitome of multigenerational fun, there aren't many cities as worthy of your Family Day activities, as Niagara Falls!
Feel like you're on a tropical vacation when you dip into one of the three colossal indoor waterparks open year-round across Niagara Falls. Dive into North America's largest, Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, to enjoy extreme waterslides and the tidal wave pool, or feel like you're on an island getaway at Waves Indoor Waterpark, spread out over 25,000 square feet and maintained at a balmy temperature. With both attached to hotels, you won't even have to venture outdoors to get to the fun.
Undoubtedly you'll want to witness the power of the thundering water and explore the wonder the city is named for - Niagara Falls. Descend 125 feet to the more than century old tunnels that make up Journey Behind The Falls. Discover breathtaking views of the frosty Falls from the observation deck that bring you beside the base of 13-storey waterfall. Close by you'll also encounter Niagara's Fury, the perfect family attraction that brings the history of Niagara Falls to life in a 4D multisensory experience. Delve further into the history of the epic waterfall and the tales of Niagara that have shaped Canada as a Nation at the Niagara Falls History Museum.
Beyond gazing at the beauty of the icy waterfall this time of year, there are plenty of ways to become one with nature. For the flower fanatics, there's always something in bloom at the indoor Floral Showhouse, just a short walk from the Falls. For the animal obsessed, Bird Kingdom, the world's largest indoor, free-flying aviary, or the Butterfly Conservatory, with more than 2000 fluttering butterflies, allow for educational and interactive experiences the entire family will love.
Of course the kids won't be dissapointed as you venture up and down Clifton Hill - nicknamed the 'Street of Fun'. A 70,000 square foot entertainment complex and arcade, a giant climate-controlled skywheel that overlooks all of Niagara Falls, a heart-racing 4-D zombie apocalypse experience and glow-in-the-dark indoor mini golf and the weirdest place for family fun Ripley's Believe it or Not round out just a FEW of the attractions you'll encounter throughout this iconic area.
For the older kids in the crowd, some of the more exciting attractions to keep your heart pounding includes a Wildplay Zipline to the Falls, Nightmares Fear Factory or a Clifton Hill Fun Pass that will get you in to all of the amazing thrilling attractions!
With all of the excitement, someone is sure to get hungry! Stop off at Clifton Hill for your fill of pizza and a dinner in the all-time favourite The Rainforest Cafe. For a fun and different breakfast option, take the family to experience the Flying Saucer Restaurant.
Staying the night in Niagara Falls is even more fun with the excitment of the night lights from the Winter Festival of Lights, where you can view million of twinkling lights throughout Niagara Falls.
