Last week I had the chance to visit Valley Fair on opening day! The weather was gorgeous and it was the absolute perfect day to take my niece and nephew for some Minnesota fun!
My boys and I go to Valley Fair every year, but this year they were still in school on opening day so this year I got to see the park through the eyes of a three and four-year-old. My kids are so much older, I forgot this age and how differently they see things and experience things. The excitement is amazing and even an adult can get caught up in the contagious happiness they have just seeing all the rides!
First I wanted to mention the Season passes if you are located anywhere near Valley Fair, this is something to consider. The season passes are very reasonably priced and you’d have fun all summer long!
Plus, everyone Pays Kids Price: Until June 19, everyone can pay and play like a kid again. Online tickets start at just $35 for everyone, regardless of age.
Gold Pass includes Unlimited Visits including Soak City Waterpark and ValleySCARE. Pays for itself in fewer than 2 visits. Prices go up May 30th – buy now and save $12/pass (Currently $87, post-deadline price = $99).
Something that’s very important to me whenever I travel or visit someplace is the food. My friends and family can vouge for this, it’s the first question out of my mouth – how’s the food there?
Valley Fair had so many different options to eat, including everything from pizza to Chinese! We opted for a pizza slice the size of our heads! It was so good and the kids loved it too!
We even had the chance to watch the staff tossing pizza dough! I think the kids could have sat and watched them for hours!
If you love thrill rides the new North Star is going to be on the top of your list!
North Star is the only ride of its kind in the upper Midwest. North Star spins riders 20 stories above the ground at speeds of up to 40mph! A 230-foot-tall tower, the second tallest ride in the park, North Star has 32 side-by-side seats suspended on chains.
