Valleyscare event

We enjoyed the event. Lines about 50 min for all the major rides tonight. The costumes of the staff wandering the trails added flavor to the event.

Local MN guy here and go to this amusement park offten with my kids. It is a very clean park with tons of rides, roller coasters, games. It lacks "entertainment" *singing, dancing shows, like 6 Flags has, etc. They have a GREAT waterpark, so in the hot summer months you will love that. It is included with admission. The last... More

I have taken the family to Valleyfair almost once every other year for the past ten years. Each time the experience was fantastic and has become a family destination. Especially when we are looking for an inexpensive family weekend. The prices are not as high as the larger theme parks and not as crowded. Wait times for rides are reasonable... More

None of the attractions were even remotely scary.... Unless you were a 5 year old. Thank god we have season passes cuz if I would have paid $40 for that I would have been pissed. Save your money... Go somewhere else.

We attended the Valley'Scare' event a few years ago and had a blast. This year, however, there weren't many zombies and monsters running around, and most of the haunted mazes weren't scary at all. The make-up jobs were poorly done. They also sell "no-boo" necklaces for people to wear. They light up and let the staff know not to scare... More

Valleyfair is best for older kids or at least kids that are willing to go on the rollercoasters. If you are looking for rides for younger, less adventurous kids, I highly recommend NIckelodeon Universe at the Mall of America. Nick Universe has a better variety of younger kid rides in my opinion and still has some pretty adventurous rides. I... More

Two carloads of family members enjoyed being frightened at this amusement park. It was a 10 year anniversary haunt. Our favorite was Mr. Cleaver's Bloodshed. Long lines everywhere but most moved quickly. Longest lines at Berserkers, which turns out to be the lamest maze of all.

We went with our boys ages 6 and 12 in October during their ValleyScare days. It was really a great time to go the crowds were really low so we hardly had to wait in line at all and were able to go on our favorite rides several times. The good news is there are enough rides to occupy the... More

This is the first year that it was this bad and disappointing. We go to Valleyscare every year and usually we enjoy it, but they allow way to many people into the park, the lines went pretty fast but that because they let so many people in the attraction and once so you see everything, not enough actors to scare...
