"If I'm traveling with my 18 month old son, will I be able to use the chair lift?" (posted 03/18/2016)

I think that you can put the baby between the two adults, depending on how much space is there left, or depending on how vigorously as are the adults. Or you can take 2 armchairs and an adult then holds the child. When you reach the top you can walk to the animal park in Klotten. Sincerely Gabriele Borchert
