  • Plenty of rides and food. Had great time and my kids loved it. So want to go when it is decorated for Halloween.

  • Edit: 2021 it has been many years since I last reviewed here. It is still an absolutely amazing place and this year Grand carnival has been simply amazing. Valleyfair is a very happy fun place to go. All of the workers have been in great spirits the ride operators are cheery. Overall this is like I remember it when I was a kid. Lots of entertainment, fun rides, fun people. The shortened hours this year are a huge bummer but at least they are open! From 2016: The quote International workers are a mixed bag of tricks many are great, however some just are not lively. It's really a downer when many of the employees are crabby or seem like they would rather be anywhere else. Other than that it's pretty awesome and I'm so glad it's here in Minnesota. You can literally take kids of all ages here. We started taking our daughter on rides literally as soon as she was able to sit. And now she's 8 years old and still loves going there every single year.
  • Has lots of good rides and roller coasters. Great variety and tons of options for eating. The water park could use a few more water slides but overall a great experience. Seating at the water park is plentiful, even in very busy days, there's always a space to sit. The staff is very friendly and makes sure everyone has a good time
