Valleyfair is not a theme park, it is an amusement park. The lines are boring serpentines with nothing to keep you entertained while waiting. That said, some of the rides are pretty good. The park is not nearly as well maintained as something like Disney...More

Its a very great park with many options for family fun and thrill seekers. I would say to buy the gold season pass to save money. Employees are very nice and theres always a helpful smile in every part of the park.

We live near VF so we go fairly often. It is expensive to eat there but it's a really nice park. Beautifully decorated and maintained. It's definitely worth a visit!

I have not used the fast lane option yet, but August is a very busy time so I would recommend it!

Most lines for the rides are sunny so June is usually cooler. If you are going to the water park then anytime. August tends to be busier with last minute trips with school starting September.
