Great place to let the kids run and play. It's nice to be able to go back and forth between the rides and the water park. Season passes are definitely worth it!

I went here to experience ValleyScare for the first time. It's basically a spooky version of Valley Fare with limited rides open and several themed haunted houses. All the usual gift shops and food courts are open but with a Halloween theme. It was fun, but the lines are a bit crazy and you spend most your time in them.... More

Valleyfair has kept a great balance for both young and old! As they expand the "thrill" rides they balance it well with "kids" rides and attractions! Will be back again, again, and again.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I went here during J4 weekend. The park wasn't as big as Six Flags or WI Dells, but it was big enough to enjoy the day/night. They have some good and thrilling rides. Amusement park was clean and friendly. Price of entrance and food wasn't that expensive, so that's a plus!

Good time for a day. Not the biggest park but nice and clean. Good kids running the concessions. Lacking in shows for quantity and quality, but the rides are good.

We purchased the fright lane passes for the second year in a row. It was fun and full of thrills. The downfall were the lines, even in the fright (fast) lane, were excruciatingly long. The haunted houses and attractions were the same as the previous year. We won't be back next year. It costs too much to see the same... More

Local MN guy here and go to this amusement park offten with my kids. It is a very clean park with tons of rides, roller coasters, games. It lacks "entertainment" *singing, dancing shows, like 6 Flags has, etc. They have a GREAT waterpark, so in the hot summer months you will love that. It is included with admission. The last... More

I have taken the family to Valleyfair almost once every other year for the past ten years. Each time the experience was fantastic and has become a family destination. Especially when we are looking for an inexpensive family weekend. The prices are not as high as the larger theme parks and not as crowded. Wait times for rides are reasonable... More

None of the attractions were even remotely scary.... Unless you were a 5 year old. Thank god we have season passes cuz if I would have paid $40 for that I would have been pissed. Save your money... Go somewhere else.
