Valleyfair opens TODAY – May 16th at 10:00 a.m. – for the 2014 season! (Does this mean summer is really coming?!?!?)
I received a press release with special media information about what’s new at Valleyfair this year:
New in 2014 is Route 76, an area geared towards families. Inspired by when Valleyfair first opened its gates to the public in 1976, Route 76 will feature a new family ride, return of an old favorite, and two newly themed classic rides. Flying up to 42 feet, Northern Lights will have everyone clinging to the handrails for the ultimate family ride experience. Guests 42” or taller, will rock and roll on over 300 feet of track at speeds of up to 43 mph.
Route 76 will also take guests back into amusement park Americana with the three Valleyfair classic rides that made their debut in 1976. Antique Autos, a treasured favorite, returns with a new roadway and features brand new convertible cars. The Tilter and Scrambler will also be relocated receive new a new look and LED light packages. Route 76 is the perfect mix of classic and new that families will enjoy together.
Valleyfair has become a part of the popular Minnesota food trend with its very own food truck, the “Taste of Valleyfair”. Parked in Route 76, the “Taste of Valleyfair” food truck will offer gourmet hot dogs in six varieties. Guests will get a true taste of Valleyfair from this unique mobile kitchen. Cool and refreshing ice cream cones and treats will also be served.
ALSO – a great deal for frugal families – Valleyfair is offering a great deal on ticket prices purchased online through June 15th. Everyone pays kids price! During this promotion, all tickets are $30.99 (plus taxes and fees). After June 15th adult ticket prices go back up to $36.99. Visit their website for more information.
And a deal for military families: Valleyfair once again honors our Hometown Heroes during Military Appreciation Days May 23, 24, 25, & 26 and July 3, 4, 5 & 6.
