Niagara Falls

We are planning a trip to Niagara Falls for the Summer of 2006. We are driving from Michigan with 3 kids - - ages 7, 4 and 3. Can anyone recommend good attractions for our family and a nice place to stay. We will be staying for about 5-6 days and are considering spending time in Toronto as well.
Some additional things that we are interested in are:
Marineland
Safari
My 7 year old wants to do the Jet Boat - is that safe for kids? Is the covered Jet boat fun also?

See the thread about planning itinerary for Toronto/Niagara Falls - some of it might apply to you.

Broing swim suits to African Lion Safari, and plan to spend the whole day there.

Youprobably have toomuch time set aside for Niagara andnot enough fpor Toronto.

The kids will love the Ontario Science Center in Toronto.

Marineland gets mixed reviews. Two of my three kids loved it when they were young, and the one who is still young loves it. A relative who is a grade three teachers loves it, and takes her class every year, and they love. (she and the kids live in Niagara Falls) Some grouches don't seem to like it much,though.

Depending on your route, you might like to stop at a beach on the way, either near Sarnia or near Pelee on the north shore of Lake Erie.

Can't hjlp on the jet boat, but I highly recommend the Maid ofthe Mist that takes you right to the bottom of the falls. Fun and safe for everyone.

Like BAK said "This is the thread already full of Niagara - Toronto stuff."
And the web is easy to get info about it.
One thing I would suggest is that you stay at the Quality or Comfort right on Clifton Hill. You can walk out your front door so to speak and just meander in and through the area rather than have to drive there. Driving there in my mind means we gotta do as much as we can before we have to leave. With the amount of time you are planning you would be better off just floating around in your "backyard" and enjoying the hill. If nothing else just to go for a walk and soak it in. We spent 1 1/2 days there. 2 would have been better. 5-6 I would have been doing what I just described. The young kids would probably like just walking around seeing the lights and activity out on the street.
