Valleyfair Amusement Park
This 100-acre park, opened in 1976, features the most thrilling and unusual rides in the area. Each year new attractions are added to the mix, such as the Wild Thing, a 207-foot tall roller coaster reaching speeds of 78 mph, with a 180-foot free fall. The park also has an IMAX theater, water park with numerous water rides, multiple children's areas, arcades, live music, shows and other attractions. Call ahead for varying dates.
If you live in the area, Valleyfair is great for something to do on a Saturday. The pros are, its safe, all rides are low level, small and simple. The cons are, the cost, every year they seem to ask for more, right now its at $37 per person, and with coupons, you are lucky to pay $30, oh and dont forget the $10 parking. The rides, are almost too small and basic, you will find that this is no Disney, or Six Flags, Valleyfair is just a large county fair. Lastly, the height of the rides only hits 205 feet, simply because they have a small airport near by, meaning they rides will never get bigger, they will never have the money to get better, and the costs will just keep going up.
Tons of fun!!! Lots of rides, games, shops, food, and entertainment. Wont find a cleaner or prettier amusement park. Not too big that you cant handle it in a day. Not too small that you wont want to return. Staff is fun and diverse. Great for all ages!!!!
Two words: Steel Venom!
ValleyFair continues to grow each year, and outdo itself as a great family place. The rollercoasters are awesome too! We were one of the first to ride Renegade, the new wooden coaster - wow! Great twists and turns, and super fast for a wooden ride. Not too bumpy and little whiplash potential!
