  • Lovely park for kids and adults combined, we do have gold passes for here and we visit quite often but we have something new to do every time. My little one loves the kiddie rides and my boys are all ...  more »
  • Excellent family time with tweens and teenagers. Valley Scare is by far our favorite time to go. Admission reasonable, parking and food over priced.  more »
  • Lots of fun and exciting rides and decent food too (although expensive as in so many places). Lines can be long at prime times.  more »

  • Some of it is probably nostalgia having been going here since I can remember and now I am 44 years old and have a daughter of my own. Yes it's expensive but not compared to Mall of America in fact it's a bargain compared to Mall of America and many more rides. Park is always clean even the young staff are well-trained and mostly seem to care. I love taking my daughter here!
  • Lots of rides and fun. Be sure to go during a week day when lines are shorter. Bring a swimsuit, towel and sunglasses. Don't forget to try some dip and dots. Parking is always easy to find. Steel venom is the best ride to start off with. Don't be scared when it locks up and roars. It's all part of the ride.
  • We have season passes and we have had them for 6 years. It is a worthwhile purchase. If you go twice, it pays for itself. We go quite often. We work it so we go for a few hours at a time. My kids realize we can go back other times so if a ride has a long line, we just move on and hit that ride the next time. We love the corn feed which is included in the price. We go to the haunted houses at valley scare. That is a lot of fun. It is also included in the price. We get the free refill containers for drinks. Also a great deal.
  • I *beep* love the roller coasters and the power tower! Soak city there is always a good place to cool off. Food is alright but bit pricey, at least if you make one purchase for the souvenir cup its free refills all day!
  • Great for families, kids, or people who just love roller coasters. Fun place to visit in the summer time. Always crowded (but it's expected). Like Disney World, but in Minnesota.
