Minne Haha w/ 2 year olds? (And other tiny kid questions)

We're bringing our two year olds up for a day next week and wondering what we can really do with them. I was thinking maybe Overlook Mountain, but I can't remember how strenuous the hike is.

Is the Minnehaha child-friendly? Do you have to stay in your seat? Are the gates small enough that everyone is safe?

Any other must-dos?

And we're hoping for the fireworks on Thursday... Where do they launch from?

THANK YOU!!!

Dont know what you mean.

In the heart of LG village at Shepards Park on the water.

I would say the boat is quite safe for a 2 y/o My youngest probably was not much older than 2 when he was on the boat. A nice place to see the fireworks is from the highway rest stop at exit 22 - southbound side. You look right into them.

Up Yonda Farms in Bolton for the youngsters is terrific. Magic Forest as well.

Have fun.

Thank you for the tips! I wanted to see what would happen if one of my boys runs away for a sec and looks out the railing, it is safe. Like, are there only decorative gates or would they stop a quick two year old?

We are staying I the village, so we are hoping that the fireworks are over the lake and we would be able to see them from our lake view hotel...

I think your two y/o will be fine and YES the fireworks can be seen throughout the Village.

A follow up. We LOVED the trip. The boys did great. Loved the MinneHaHa, boys still talking about it. The beach was great. And the fireworks were perfect. Hoping to do another weekend before the end of the summer.

Another follow up! A month later the kids are still talking about it so we are heading back up for the weekend. Staying outside of town this time but still on the trolley!
