Thinking of driving to Buffalo again but taking the misses & 8 year old. Anyone local know of a few thinks for a 9 year old to do there. I don’t have a ticket yet but will look later. I met up with some buffalo folks from iorr the last time. I’m the Irish guy from Belfast that lives in Delaware. You all though I looked I like Dennis hoper. anyhoo

So what is the reason behind there not being any Lucky Dips for Buffalo? Some state law issue?

Vivid Seats (were I have previously bought concert tickets in the past and never had an issue) has a bunch of under $100.00 nose bleed seats (10% off special) for the Buffalo show. My question: if I purchased tickets for section 332 or 313, would these be essentially obstructed or limited view seating?

I’d hang fire, if the show doesn’t sell well they’ll add Lucky Dips.

Yes, the same reason they didn’t in 2015. It’s some NYS ticket law.

Things to do with an 8 year old in Buffalo. A bit depends on what your 8 yr old is into. If you don't have passports for all, you'll have to stay on the US side, where there is:

Niagara Falls (on the US side the Cave of the Winds or Maid Of The Mist ride can be quite an experience for an 8 yr old),

Buffalo Zoo (small, but that can be a good thing if an 8 yr old is walking),

Explore & More Children's Museum at Canalside (just opened in the last year), also at Canalside an 1800's carousel that is being rebuilt and should be open by Summer, recreational boating (also around Canalside) in boats powered by pedaling to kayaks and small sailboats

Fort Niagara: 1700s French fort just north of Niagara Falls where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario. French lost it to the British, who then lost it to America, who then used it to attack Canada, and thankfully war-free since 1814 when the US discovered that Canadians are cool people who like a beer as much as we do

Fantasy Island - small, old amusement park geared to those who are maybe 11 and under. No wild roller coasters or scarier rides. Def not trying to compete with a Six Flags or Disneyworld in size, scope or technology. Small and easy to get around, rarely a long line for anything.

I would add our main art museum, Albright Knox, which houses a world-class collection of modern art and going back into the impressionists. It is closed as it's in the early stages of a massive construction project and won't re-open for 2 years.

If you have passports for all, the Canadian side has many attractions from a great Butterfly Conservatory, to zip lining and easy hiking on that side of the Falls. Pre 9/11 no passports were needed to go back and forth across the border and we could pop across one of the bridges to Canada for lunch or dinner or golf or just a bike ride, without hassles/delays at customs. Two countries with one easy to cross border, but not anymore. Expect delays of 15-30 minutes most days. Holidays and weekends come with longer delays unless you pick an off-hour to cross.

All great ideas but unfortunately it was just announced today that Fantasy Island has closed up.

The Buffalo Museum of Science is also great for kids.

Take the kid to the show. He will win an award at school next Fall when he does his presentation: What I Did I MY Summer Vacation

He is 8 & has seen Willie Nelson, Van Morrison, Peter Wolf, The Who & The Rolling Stones. He said “Sponge Bob bears em all”. Leaving him with his Mum that day. Oh I haven’t even got myself a ticket yet. Lol

I jumped and bought 2 in the first row of the upper deck for $163 each. Of course after 'service' fees they became $195 each. The stadium is so spread out (I was a season ticket holder for football for over 25 years) that unless you are on the first half of the floor you are likely watching most of the show on video. At least I know with being in the first row, no one will be standing in from of me, trying to record the whole show on his phone, shaky, wobbly and grainy from 300 feet from the stage, talking the entire time. (Exactly what happened for a Beck, Cage The Elephant, Spoon and Sunflower Bean show last Summer...thankfully he finally stopped it during Beck...and left us to wonder if he and his friend ever watched the video and listened to his non-stop commentary over the music for 2 hours...I am all for a good bootleg recording but this was not one of them)

Looking one ticket for Buffalo. Those that know the stadium can you recommend a section to aim for. Can’t spring for pit but around the $200 mark or do you think I am better to wait to closer to the time. Thanks
