on the fast track Slated for launch in spring 2018, the Niagara Speedway will be North America’s largest elevated go-kart track facility.

ork is proceeding rapidly on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario as the Niagara Speedway takes shape. A marriage of


traditional go-karts with the added excitement of an elevated coaster styled track, drivers aboard J&J F-22 doubles go-karts will get to test their driving skills along the straightaway, negotiate the hair-pin turns, and climb the elevated ramp on the 1,800 foot (549 metre) long track. “It looks like we’re going to finish construction this fall, and hopefully in October we’re going to do all our testing,” said Harry Oakes, President of HOCO Limited, who owns and operates attractions, restaurants and shops on the south side of Clifton Hill. “We’ll shut down for the winter, and then we’re looking to launch in the spring, as soon as the weather breaks.” To sum it up in a few words, Oakes said, “It’s like


go-karts on steroids. You drive on a road course for a portion of the race and then spiral up... to about 40 feet (12 metres), and then come down a long hill... kind of like the way a wooden coaster would be.” The Niagara Speedway is part of a 10-acre (4 hectare)


redevelopment project that started about a year-and-a- half ago with the demolition of the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill building. This created a 4-acre (1.6 hectare) site for expansion of new Clifton Hill entertainment facilities. This opened up 20,000 square feet (1,858 square metres) of renovations, and 30,000 square feet (2,787 square metres) of new buildings and extensive streetscape site work.
