Water Parks and Amusement Parks like the Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park Resort have more than an acre of fun and exciting water park space. It is the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer day.

Younger children will love the Adventure Bay children’s activity pool. If you eventually grow tired of the water, then you can climb and explore the Tiki Tree House.

The Waldameer Amusement Park is an old-fashioned throwback to American entertainment. The Waldameer has more than 70 fun and exciting rides. If roller coasters are more your thing, then there are three to choose from. When it comes to water slides, variety is the name of the game, as there are 18 different slides to splash down.

There are plenty more activities that bring a smile to Erie kids. You can visit the Children’s Museum, which has more than 50 exhibits, many of which are hands-on. It is a fun, interactive place that will teach you about social sciences, natural sciences and the arts. Another option might be to spend the day exploring the Erie Maritime Museum. For children who enjoy nature and the great outdoors, Presque Isle State Park is a great place to visit.

Helping a child with a critical illness is easier than you think. However, there is nothing simple about the amount of joy and happiness it brings.
