You want to get there early and if you have a gold pass just do some of the haunted house and go back another time for the rest that way then it is not so much standing in lines all over the park . Very...More
We really enjoy this park. There are so many fun rides, prices for food are high but it's no different here thank other parks. We bring food in a cooler and eat in the parking lot in our car and they stamp your hand so...More
Valleyfair is a fun, family-friendly medium-large amusement park. The grounds are well-kept, clean, and pretty. The rides are nice, but loading/unloading can be pretty slow. Go on a weekday when crowds are light and you won't have to stand in many lines. Take advantage of...More
This was a well done event. The fog, the ghouls, the scare zones and music were perfectly creepy. It was a chilly night but we stayed warm with winter attire. There are plenty of indoor areas to warm up. Parking was $17, which we didn’t...More
Every fall Valley Fair has special events. During the days on the weekends, there is a kid friendly version (The Great Pumpkin Fest). Evenings on the weekends features the scary event, with actors in scary makeup/costumes in the haunted houses and wandering about as well....More
We moved to Minnesota after being spoiled living next to Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. Our family grew up loving Kings Island so Valleyfair can be disappointing in comparison. Valleyfair is 1/3 the size of Kings Island and its roller coasters are disappointing. It's nice...More
We paid for the all inclusive speed pass tickets for Valley Scare for 2 years now and I have to say compared to last years events I was very disappointed with this year. Last year the highlights were in fact the key rooms and Zombie...More
Valley Fair is always fun. If you need something to do when guests are coming from out of town it is a good place to spend the day. It is not a super huge park but big enough to have a lot of variety of...More
My husband and I have just planned our road trip vacation. We will be in Bloomington for 3 days at the end of July. We plan on going to the Mall of America and Valleyfair for sure. We will only have 2 full days and half of another in this area. I have been to MOA a few times before when I was younger but never to Valleyfair. What are some tips and some things to do in both of these places? Pros and Cons of Valleyfair? Any info that would help make our trip great would be very appreciated! :)

Get to ValleyFair early. Try to see the big rides first before the lines build. Bring swimsuit for the wave pool and waterpark.
Park at the Mall or Valleyfair? (8 Replies)
The family and I will be visiting relatives in St. Cloud at the end of August, so we will make a short vacation out of it with a night in St. Cloud and a couple of nights in the Twin Cities area. I have two kids ages 6 and 3. Between Park at the Mall and Valleyfair, which is more kid-friendly? Which is a better value? Park at the Mall is very expensive. You have to pay $25 (all-day pass) for everyone, including my 3 year old son. On the other hand, it's only $9.95 for an "Under 48 inches...More

I'm not exactly sure what Park at the Mall is. Does that mean Mall of America? If so, I'd do Valleyfair in a heartbeat. Both are very kid-friendly but Valleyfair is much larger and a far better value. It's more of an experience. $25 seems pretty spendy for the mall park (I'm guessing Park at the Mall is the Old Camp Snoopy that had to be renamed). Just know that Valleyfair includes a parking fee -- about $10 I think. And it is about 30-35 minutes from the Mall. Pretty far out there in...More
1 or 2 day trips from Rochester, MN with 2 teenage girls (0 Replies)
My husband and I will be traveling to Rochester, MN for medical and my 14 year old daughter and her friend will be accompanying us. I am trying to find something that will be fun that we can do in 1 day or possibly a short 2day - 1nt day trip from Rochester. We enjoy the outdoors and also things we can do as a family. I have looked at Valleyfair in Shakopee and think it may be an option. I appreciate the help.
