That's One Stop Crossed Off The List

We're taking some time off at the end of the month while our babysitter is on vacation. I have been thinking about going to Niagara Falls and taking Garrett to the Marvel Superheroes Adventure City thing for a while and decided to check into it last night.

Well, I'm sure glad I looked into it before we made the trip down there. It turns out that Marvel has pulled the licensing (or the hotel that ran the attraction dumped it) and it's now just Adventure City, with most of the Marvel likenesses just gone.

You've gotta love the chutzpah of a place that renames the Spidey & Friends Playground as the Spikey & Friends Playground.

Granted, lots of these images are now old, but why not at least spring for a few extra dollars and put a new sign up instead of just blanking out the Daredevil in the Daredevil Obstacle Course?

I'm also glad I looked into this as it seems that it was an extraordinarily overpriced and crappy arcade that happened to have some Marvel licensing attached.

Now to invest that money on a trip to the ROM!
