Things to Do on Christmas in Niagara Falls!

So it’s going to be Christmas soon in the Niagara Falls region. It’s even going to be Christmas in the Nightmares Fear Factory, and even the Nightmares Fear Factory may not be particularly sure what that means. Probably, though, there’ll be some jolly Christmas bells tinkling away while you have the life scared out of you.

Given that, and given the wide array of amazing attractions in the Niagara Falls Clifton Hill area, we thought it might be nice to point out that, once you’ve had yourself scared right into the sight of the Ghost of Christmas Future, you might want to go do something else for a little bit.

So here’s a few other things you can do in Niagara Falls, Clifton Hill, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

This, by the way, will all be taken from this list here, which you can view at any point. We give you the names and places of some nearby attractions, and how long they’ll be open during the holidays.

Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not

Just down the street from the Nightmares Fear Factory, Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not rather than turning you into the attraction in the particular style of a haunted house, is content with simply providing you something interesting to look at and interact with.

People under five years old are complimentary, and the place is open between ten in the morning and six at night both Christmas and Eve.

Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not is a ten thousand square foot museum packed with nine hundred different artefacts which specialise in being weird or being amazing, depending on your point of view. The museum is a great place to hit up during the holidays—especially if you’ve got some kids tagging along.

Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum

Just down the street again from Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not, Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum is another amazing venue for a family to visit during the holidays. While incorporating some of the weirdness and fright (though more passive than in the Nightmares Fear Factory, it must be said) of the other two venues, Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museum presents them in the form of wax statues of famous and imaginary things.

With children under five allowed in free and with the Wax Museum open again from ten to six, there are sixteen galleries with over a hundred and forty wax statues including many politicians, and many figures from science fiction, the Wax Museum is a great place to go on the Holidays.

Skylon Tower Observation Deck

It’s a bit of a walk, but the view is worth it. Especially on Christmas, where you might get a crimson glimpse of Saint Nick flashing through the lower cloud layer. Even without that, though, there’s probably no better way to wind down after a long day’s march through Clifton Hill and Niagara Falls than by relaxing and getting some perspective on the whole thing from eight hundred feet in the air. Word is, the Skylon Tower will even be glowing red for the occasion, whispering words of good cheer and holiday spirit into the Niagara skyline.

So, after you’ve finished being scared out of your mind, there’s plenty of places to go and get your mind back and properly situated in Niagara Falls on Christmas and Christmas Eve.
