  • Waaaaaaaay bigger than I thought it would be. Great for smaller children. My Grand daughter is 13 and maybe a little too old for most of the attractions. There is so much to do and see that you can sp...  more »
  • Was taken back by the price of the tickets, but upon entrance I could easily see why they charge the ticket price that they do. The place is beyond huge with a ton of activities to offer for every age...  more »

  • Here is the biggest issue I see for a fun trip to Vala's - they have consistently put in bigger and better features for everyone to enjoy. They have become a HUGE business. And there is one way into the parking area and one way out. This past weekend we waited one full hour to get out of the parking lot. We were told they were "doing their best." When we finally got close to the exit, we saw one lonely individual is his bright orange "staff" shirt emptying all of the parking lots close to the road. I stopped quickly and explained that there were literally a hundred cars that had been sitting for an hour because he was only directing the cars that he could see!! He said "I'm doing my best." Gotcha. That doesn't change the fact that you are oblivious that there are cars that you actually can't see that have been sitting for almost an hour while you let people that you can see hop in their cars and you wave them through! Almost an hour to get in, over an hour to get out. In the words of my family "never again." If you can go in the middle of the week, I'm sure it would be awesome. Forget the weekends. Crowded, long wait in every line, and no way to get in or out.
  • Vala's is a fun place to go, but it is very pricey and very busy. In 2016 you can visit Mon - Thurs for about $13 a person over the age of 2. Otherwise the weekend is about $17. For a large family, that is very expensive. I wish they had children's prices like the Zoo does to make it more affordable. If you go on a weekend, expect lots of traffic. Plan for 45min to get out of the park. Plus, thousands of people, so it will not be very enjoyable. The activities inside are fun, food is good, but again, very expensive. A turkey leg is $10. Each year they add new attractions.
  • I remember it being so much better, but when I went this year it was so run down. For the theme park level prices they charge, they should throw at least a little money into maintaining the place. Not to mention their animals were all kept in horrid conditions. I work with animals and that kind of filthiness does not build up overnight if you are cleaning regularly. There were no enrichment items for any of the mammals, they were all standing in bare dirt/mud with no access to a dry place to lie down. There are plenty of well-maintained petting zoos in the omaha area, so there is no excuse for vala's shoddy husbandry.
  • I had never been to Vala's before this despite living in the area so long. And now I see what all the hype was about. It was quite a wonderful day. I beleive we were there all of five hours and didn't see or do it all. Alot of things are geared towards younger children but that did not stop my two teenagers from having a great time. We thoroughly enjoyed having a family picture done in the old timey clothing and settings and the shops were fantastic. We also came home with three amazing pumpkins! Such a great time.
  • Many fun family activities during the fall season. The hot apple cider is awesome. We saw the pumpkin eating dragon, went down the huge slides, through the haunted houses, and down the hill to the bounce balloons. The turkey legs and funnel cakes rock.
