Buffalo RiverWorks

359 Ganson St, Buffalo, NY 14203, USA

Open year-round on the banks of the Buffalo River, this massive waterfront complex offers everything you need for a fun afternoon. Zip-line between abandoned grain silos, challenge yourself on the high-ropes course, kayak down the river, or climb the 50-foot rock wall. There’s even an escape room experience, plus two covered outdoor skating rinks in winter. If you’d prefer something slightly more passive, RiverWorks hosts a series of music, cultural, and sporting events throughout the year, and also houses a fully functioning brewery and casual dining restaurant with outdoor seating on the river. While the venue sits in somewhat of an unexpected location, in the heart of Buffalo’s industrial corner, it’s pretty hard to miss—just look for the grain silos painted to resemble a six-pack of Labatt Blue beer.
