Great family activity and close to AmericInn. You are out of traffic and close to Mall of America and also the Target Center.

This is a good amusement park, but not as good as other Cedar Fair parks that I've visited. There are only 3 good roller coasters (Wild Thing, Excalibur, and Renegade). The drop tower was fun, but the rest of the rides in the park are adequate at best. I've visited other Cedar Fair parks such as Kings Island, Kings Dominion,... More

Bought weekday tix, meal plan, and parking online to save some money but it was still a lot. On Wednesday there weren't a lot of people and we didn't have to wait long anywhere. The waterpark was more busy. I hate water rides usually but i actually liked these ok. The psycho circus was entertaining and it was nice to... More

For those unfamiliar, Valleyfair is the Upper Midwest's version of Six Flags. Several great Thrill rides that are on par with other more famous parks. Wild Thing, Steel Venom, Extreme Swing, Rip Cord, and the Power Tower provide plenty of adrenaline rushes. Many rides to cater to young kids too. Our time in their watermark was a great relief to...

I don't understand how the Como Zoo can do everything for free yet here and MN Zoo charge outrageous prices just to park. Valleyfair is in the middle of know where and so you have to pay to park...

I visited Valleyfair as part of a fundraising trip for my university's club. I think it's really great that they have such a program to give back to the community. In addition, I had the opportunity to ride some rides and see the park. It's a great park, with lots of nice, fun rides. The lines were reasonable and the... More

I went to ValleyFair at 4th July. There were no lines thus I got almost all the attractions. I liked most the Steel Venom once it has an unique performance as a roller coaster.

I have been going since I was a kid, and have to say it is one of my favorite mini vacations. I am a huge coaster freak, and love the array of coasters here. I have been to other parks, including Disney, Busch Gardens, Universal and others.. and Valleyfair has the most in one park for coasters. Heading there on... More
