Come to Clifton Hill!
If you are looking for a fun night out with great food and attractions, consider coming to Clifton Hill. We are the home to Boston Pizza Clifton Hill where we will once again be participating in the heart-shaped pizza extravaganza. $1 from every heart-shaped pizza sold on Valentine’s Day in Niagara Falls goes to the “Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects”. This foundation helps to support youth in the communities and across the country, in partnership with organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Kids Help Phone, Live Different, JDRF and other programs that help mentor kids to reach their full potential.


Fun Factory features the Wax Hand Emporium where you can make replicas of your own hand in coloured wax. How cool would it be to take home a real-size souvenir of your own hand, just like the wax museum characters at Movieland next door.

It’s a creative, inexpensive and unique souvenir to always remember your Valentine’s Day in Niagara Falls, and it’s offered right here on Clifton Hill. Choose your colours, message, single-hand or two! It’s up to you. Check it out below:
