BUFFALO, N.Y. — You can find a little adventure right in the heart of Buffalo with some new ways to play over at Riverworks.
From concerts to kayaks, there’s something for everyone. Recently, some new rides have gone up along the river.
This year, they’ve added Riverland, a mini amusement park with a tiny train, twirling boats, and of course, the Buffalo Ferris wheel.
For $16, you can go on all the rides one time or a $21 wristband gets you unlimited access. Grab adventure passes and you can ride the zip line, climb the rock walls and explore the riverway with kayaks.
Officials say it took around two years to put together this multi-million dollar project to transform Riverworks from ancient silos to a premier entertainment spot.
“So if somebody came in from Cleveland, they're not just going to run to Niagara Falls, we'll have something to do here in downtown Buffalo as well," said Bill Casale, general manager at Riverworks. "Between all the other investments and development at canalside and around Buffalo, we're just trying to be a part of that redevelopment and creating a world-class destination.”
The fun is happening seven days a week from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
