"The first of its kind in Canada"
The Niagara Speedway will be the largest racetrack of its kind in North America. It was developed as part of an ongoing project started in 2015 intended to revitalize Clifton Hill and improve Niagara Falls tourism as a whole.
Construction was completed this past February and test runs have already been conducted on the track, which features a 4-storey corkscrew and elevated coaster sections. Drivers will maneuver through sharp turns and wavy ramps as they make their way to the finish line.
“Niagara Speedway is a marriage of traditional go-karts with the added fun and excitement of an elevated coaster-style track,” the racetrack's official website’s reads.
