    Spent the whole day with family and still missed a couple of machines. The park is suitable for all ages. Make sure kids eat a lot before heading to the park as usual food is pricey. We found the fami...  more »

    We really enjoy our family time here. Kids love it and have a blast. Water park area is a lot of fun especially when hot out. I am glad we have some thing like this in the area. If you are looking at going a few times a year I would recommend looking into the season pass. with the season pass you also get Valley Scare. Seemed like a good deal when we looked into it.

    Had a great time. I'm a gold pass holder and it was worth every penny. The food prices are a little high but what could you expect for an amusement Park. The lines actually are not that bad. The rides are very well maintained and safe. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. It's great place to go if you are a tourist or just need something to do. The park is very clean. The plants they have around the park are beautiful. It's easy to find your way around.I also do respect that they opt for a security check at the gate. Makes me feel a lot safer and I have no problem with taking a extra couple of minutes to have that security. Highly recommended.

    Been coming here since I was a kid and now I get to bring my son. Much more to do than back in the mid 80's. Great rides although there usually seems to be one or two down for construction or whatever reason. Park is clean and fairly priced. Especially the Gold Pass and its perks! Totally worth it! Water park is great! Great coasters and other rides! Thanks VF for 30 years of fun and making it better all the time.

    Such a fun amusement park! If your local like I am, buy a gold pass.. it's worth every penny. The food is a little bit pricey but I highly recommend going there

    I liked the rides and restaurants, but it's hard to get into them because the lines are fairly long. The park is nice, but some of their prices are outrageous. For example, I payed $9.00 for a milkshake. The service was nice, but not for the price. Overall it was fun.
