I bought the all inclusive tickets for me and my family. The tickets included parking, admission, fast pass, and all day dining. Admission and fast pass is $74 and the all inclusive is $99.99. Parking is only $17 so basically I paid $25.99 extra for the dining plan on all but one ticket. The places where you can actually use... More

Last night on May 25th was Valleyfair's horrible attempt at adult night. My two friends and I were in line for PowerTower and these three guys decided to budge behind us and cut over three lines... My friend called them out and said that's not okay and the people that were originally behind us were not happy as well. We... More

Valleyfair! is a great place to go as a family with lots to do for all ages! Season pass is the way to go if you go more than twice a year! Food can be pricey but you can re-enter and use the picnic grounds.

Valleyfair is a mainstay in the Shakopee area. It is an employer of young adults, it brings tourism and is just a fun place to be. It is clean, smaller, but has what you need to enjoy a day at the park. Their roller coasters and thrill rides are fantastic.

Season pass holder for decades. Best value. Go in May no lines. Renew during Valleyscare time and they give you a fast pass to use. Eat at Chickie Pete. Large pizza feeds more for less $. Air conditioned and free refills. Everywhere gives free water don't buy it.

We get the season passes every year, live close and love going for the day. The food service could use some work. Prices are a little high. I've had some very long waits on food. We are trying the food pass this year. I'm hoping for better staffing in this area.

I have an annual pass every year and truly enjoy going to VF as often as possible. I work near by so a quick stop for some coaster time on my way home is a great way to end the day. I can't wait for the North Star swing ride to open in May!

Great place to let the kids run and play. It's nice to be able to go back and forth between the rides and the water park. Season passes are definitely worth it!

I went here to experience ValleyScare for the first time. It's basically a spooky version of Valley Fare with limited rides open and several themed haunted houses. All the usual gift shops and food courts are open but with a Halloween theme. It was fun, but the lines are a bit crazy and you spend most your time in them.... More

Valleyfair has kept a great balance for both young and old! As they expand the "thrill" rides they balance it well with "kids" rides and attractions! Will be back again, again, and again.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!
