|The view from the top of the Sky Wheel.|
|How small everyone looks from the top according to my daughter.|
|The sound at the top isn't as nice as the view!|
|A somewhat unorthodox approach to a golf swing, but she scored 89 which she thought was great since it was the highest of all of us.|

|Have I ever mentioned that I am a world class Skee Ball player? I mean, if they had classes and international competitions and whatnot for Skee Ball.|
Inside the Midway is the Ghost Blaster ride and the XD Theatre. Ghost Blaster is basically the same as Boo Blaster at Canada's Wonderland, a haunted house ride where you shoot up ghosts and other spooky creatures. At least, I have heard that is what it is like, my kids were too scared to go in. The woman who was working the ticket booth assured us that it was less scary inside than it was outside but my kids were not convinced.

|My daughter could at least identify this as an Egyptian guy.|
Some things to keep in mind:
- Sky Wheel runs year round, day and night since the gondolas are climate controlled.
- All of the attractions covered under the Clifton Hill Fun Pass are within about 2 minutes of each other so there won't be much walking.
- The Great Canadian Midway, Ghost Blasters, Galaxy Glow in the Dark Mini Golf, Movieland Wax Museum and XD Theatre are all indoors so you can do them any time of year.
- At most of the attractions, your fun pass lets you sort of jump the line. Sky Wheel for instance has a separate line for fun pass holders so check before you line up in case you don't actually need to.
Thanks to Christine Lynn who helped arrange everything and answered all my questions for our trip to Clifton Hill.
